GACKT to release new single on June 16th. All details are still pending, but it has been announced that the single will have 2 songs (plus the instrumental versions). The limited edition will include a DVD and a mysterious bonus item, all subject to change. Check back in closer to the release date for more concrete information. I’m totally pumped for this.
Although I felt somewhat disappointed by the later two Kamen Rider releases, his December release, Setsugekka~The End of Silence~ was a work of pure genius. It totally took the crown from all of the anniversary releases and the Decade stuff (but don’t get me wrong, I thought the anniversary releases were awesome as well). Although I’m somehow surprised by this new development, I think that by the time June rolls around we’ll all be ready for some new GACKT.
I have high hopes for Jrock at large this summer. As the weather heats up, I sure hope that Visual Kei and Jrock releases follow suit. Generally I have felt pretty let-down by a lot of what has hit shelves– and although I’m ready to roll with second-chances and everything, I’m hoping that a new heat wave will hit us with something truly stunning from the get-go.
I will be updating as soon as more information is available.
