ToshI delivering his angelic voice to the world.

 

Yokohama, Japan — June 21st, 2011 — HearJapan is excited to announce that X Japan singer ToshI has just added two brand new singles to the catalog!


Hoshizora no Neptune and Haru no Negai both prominently feature ToshI’s legendary vocal style set along-side elegant and moving piano melodies and string arrangements. These songs of separation, miraculous encounters and beauty could be considered metaphorically about the victims of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Their power and majesty work to heal all wounds.

Both Hoshizora no Neptune and Haru no Negai will be available to download the second they go on sale in Japan. Hardcore fans overseas won’t have to feel left out of this monumental communal experience! Make sure to pre-order now and set your alarm so you can be the first to own these incredible new ToshI singles as soon as they go live!

Also, don’t forget that along with ToshI’s healing voice, 5% of ALL HearJapan sales go toward the continuing relief efforts in Japan. And make sure to catch X Japan on their current world tour!

BLOOD is BACK! Huge week of new vis-kei at HearJapan

===========================
Yokohama, Japan — June 14th, 2011 — This is looking to be one of the biggest weeks for visual-kei releases. As always, HearJapan has you covered!

First off, BLOOD is BACK! After breaking up in 2009, the band has reformed. Their new release “Bathory” features the same signature dark, pulsing electro rock and is accompanied by a host of great guests, including Ravishan (SUICIDE ALI), Masa (Dunkelheit), SEN (marlee), and GPK (GPKISM). As if it wasn’t great enough to have the band back in fighting shape, they’ve also included a new video along with the single, all for one alarmingly low price!

Also, rumor has it that BLOOD will be going on an international tour…sometime soon! Get ready and grab the new single now!

HearJapan is proud to offer up the very first release from Dunkelheit this week. “lover in the soil” combines classic vis-kei sounds with a fresh rock edge. This first effort from the band quickly became a HearJapan Hot Pick!

The darkest, gothest dance band in the world, GPKISM, is back with their second full-length album “Reliquia.” Featuring vocals sung entirely in English (due to Australian front-man GPK), this is a band like none other. Their elegant take on techno is sure to heat up the floor on any self-respecting goth club around the world.

And finally, as if all of this wasn’t enough, SUICIDE ALI have a new single, “Doner of lie,” releasing this week as well! They mix up metal, electronics and a grand feel to produce some monumental songs.

This might be a lot to take in all at once, so head on over to the site and listen to clips from each and every song from all of these new releases. Let the darkness consume you!

Halloween [27 Oct 2006|03:03am]

sarah_charade
I know it's really short notice, but would anyone be interested in meeting up for lunch or something for Halloween? Michi-kun and I were messaging on Myspace and hoping we could get together and meet some jrock fans in the London area. Maybe we could go to the Japanese restaurant at Covent Garden?

I was thinking Sunday 12:30ish?

By the way, if anyone is interested, there are some great local bands playing a Halloween show this Monday at the Embassy. That includes ILBLIS, Jesse Tierney's band. Jesse is the piercer/tattoo artist most requested at Hardcore Piercing and Tattoos.

I'm stealing a pic of the flier to share with you all.

Family Values Tickets [26 Jul 2006|09:02pm]

allmadhere

So, due to unfortunate circumstances, my friend and I can't go to the Detroit Family Values concert. Which means... we have two tickets for sale!

TWO tickets for the Detroit concert, September 09, at DTE Energy. They're seats 18 and 19 in row EE. That's only 31 rows from the front -- they're really pretty good seats!! We had to buy them the first day they were available in order to get seats that good. I hate to sell them, but there's just no way that we're able to go to the concert.

We need to sell the pair of them for $176 Canadian to break even, what with the Ticketmaster costs and all. (That's $155 US)

Anyway, if you're interested, or have other questions, post here.

Thanks!!
