Most musicians will tell you that sites such as YouTube and Ustream are crucial to worldwide success. And Japan is no different. Except in Japan there is Nico Nico Douga, and its realtime counterpart, Nico Nico Live.

For the first time ever, J-rock super-duo VAMPS will be going live on the Net, to promote their latest visual offering, “VAMPS Live 2012.” In case you don’t know who VAMPS are, they are made up of L’Arc〜en〜Ciel’s HYDE and K.A.Z. of Oblivion Dust, in one of the most thrilling collabs the visual scene has seen since S.K.I.N.

The international release of the DVD/Blu-ray is coming up this summer, so check back for more information.

Here’s a sneak peek:

As for tonights show, dial in to MTV 81 today at 6:00pm JST (that’s 9:00am GMT) to see some of VAMPS latest music videos and live shows, as well as a live interview with the two (sorry, Japanese only!).
