“Akatsuki-Crisis” will be out Dec. 23, with a deluxe, limited photobook edition to boot. I’m not much of one for photobooks, but the Zumakyuri bromance* may prove to be irresistible. Continue reading →
Why a Sunday?! But while your friendly neighborhood slept and then woke up to deal with another issue, Yukueshirezutsurezure was pre-releasing one track from the upcoming Post-Catastrophe and one that you’ll only be able to get if you buy at Tower Records.

If you weren’t sold yet, what if I told you that it includes snips of the members playing the instruments that they’ll be playing at their anniversary live? Including Kechon on drums which amuses me endlessly for some reason. Continue reading →
