DISDOL: The Next Generation

Idol is an odd thing. Group structure is very fluid, and for some it seems to be ever changing. A member graduates, another comes in, that sort of thing. What DISDOL is doing is a bit like that…….. I guess.

DISDOL has decided that they are going to make a complete group revamp. There are going to be six graduations, the totality of the current lineup. Mind you there have been some changes already this year, Two members joined, three members withdrew, and one left for health reasons. How about a quick rundown of the exiting members.

So, that covers that, they will all be graduating. For all interested the graduation will be on October 9th. The show will be a one-man live at 川崎 Club Citta. It should be quite the event.

Now on to the new members. It was announced on September 1st that DISDOL would be getting three new members. At the time I don’t think that there were any inklings that the rest would be leaving only that there would be an announcement on September 5th. Anyhow, here are the new members.

From what I understand these three girls will form the core of a new DISDOL generation, so it sounds like more members will be added in the future. It was also announced that the new group will be a mix of idol and band, a sort of hybrid. I assume it will be like other idol groups that have backing bands on special occasions but DISDOL will always have one. I guess that will make them sort of like BABYMETAL in that respect.

I look forward to whatever new things this next generation of DISDOL will bring. I have liked a lot of the music they have done before.

Remember when they were called Dissenter Dolls? Ahhh, good memories……….
