Vif - Special Feature - Ruki Interview

Ruki’s Interview for Vif

1. Completely changing over from the last 2 songs which were hard numbers, the new song “PLEDGE” is a majestic ballad after “Guren”, so please tell us about the motive behind working out a ballad this time.

Ruki : That’s because I personally feel winters are for ballads. That is why I made it.

2. What is the theme of the single “PLEDGE”?

Ruki : I wanted to write about an expression more profound than love.

3. The title “PLEDGE” means a vow or a written vow, please tell us the motive behind such a title. Also, other than “a vow or a written vow”, does this word also carry some special significance?

Ruki : I added the sense of something being deeper than a promise.

4. Which are the lyrics or the phrase which symbolizes “PLEDGE” this time?

Ruki : The first and the last words.

5. With the GazettE going to Tokyo Dome, the expectations from the fans run high just thinking about how the contents would turn out to be, so do you have anything you want to try, or any objectives in mind for Dome?

Ruki : It’ll be good if we are able to create the biggest burst among the artists who have performed at Tokyo Dome.

6. What is the reason behind having decided upon Dome at this time?

Ruki : That is because the band needs a giant, triggering explosion right now.

7. What is the Dome Live, to the GazettE?

Ruki : We wanted to try out what we would be able to present on a Stage of our dreams, at this time. That is all.

8. What is the GazettE’s next objective, after Dome is over?

Ruki : We just want to take the band to the highest position.

9. This is always asked of everybody holding a Live at the highest rated structure in Japan. What is a “good Live” to the GazettE?

Ruki : A sense of unity. How much does it resonate with the audience?

10. During the long Tour, were there any difficult times for the 5 members while travelling?

Ruki : There weren’t.

11. Please tell us what has been your favourite item of convenience during the Tour.

Ruki : iPhone.

12. What is the one thing in the world that the GazettE is proud of?

Ruki : The relationship with the fans.
