In 2016, there was a major shift in the line-up and “Next Generation” was added to the name.

Their current touring line-up comprises of:
Kawabata Makoto : guitar, synthesizer, speed guru
Higashi Hiroshi : synthesizer, theremin, harp, noodle god
Jyonson Tsu : vocal, guitar, bouzouki, midnight whistler
Satoshima Nani : drums, another dimension
Wolf : bass, space & time
