Your Homicidols Weekender #305

Lots of big news dropped this week, including that Japan will soon be re-opening it’s doors to foreign wota starting October 11th.  While we can now start planning overseas trips in earnest, there were also two huge announcements for the home front, especially if you have easy access to the west coast of the US.

First up, Isiliel will be arriving very soon to play several dates over the next two months.

Second, and more ominously, 14th Generation Toilet Hanako-San has announced her return to America this coming December. 

Hanako-san, just in time for Christmas!!? God bless us every one. While we anxiously prepare for Hanako-Santa to come curse our holidays, a bunch of other stuff happened too:

Friend of Homicidols, Temma Matsunaga (URBANGARDE) teamed up with new idol unit, Kingsari to bless us with this anthem. Finally! A military mobilization that I can support.

NEO JAPONISM gives us this heartfelt, post-punk, prog and math rock ballad (listen for all the signature changes; this is a fascinating tune).

9DayzGlitchClubTokyo has released their first mini-album.

Axelight beams in some dub step drops for their latest.

At the time of my writing this, I haven’t listened to the new one from DARE MO SHIRANAI because it doesn’t drop for another six hours, but at the time of your reading this, I will have. I think I just invented the time machine.
