Title says it. New album this fall with around 10 tracks, is to be released simultaneously in the US and Japan. Members of X are playing Oatakon this year, and the full band is playing Lalapoloza. A ten city US tour to follow this fall in support of the album. 6 cities named.... maybe Minneapolis will be one of the other 4.

Words alone are insufficient to express the magnitude of this news. Luckily, I don't have to rely on words alone.

I suppose I could just read the linked article but is Sugizo the guitarist?

Edit: And a news bit on the ABC website:

"Here's a band that's bigger than the Beatles, Stones and Springsteen combined."

Like this.

"Japan's Bono: Yoshiki Is Ready to Take on the U.S."

Hate this. Bono? WTF?!?!

That was also some of the poorest writing in a news article I think I have ever read. Content is thumbs up but still, "he composed a concerto for the emperor and made lots of money"?

Heh. I thought the same thing, plus there's the photo of Toshi on the first page that they seem to be identifying as Yoshiki.

I suppose it's nice to see them getting noticed in US media at all, but on the other hand it also probably shouldn't be surprising that the quality of their entertainment reporting is as consistently mediocre as is their political reporting.

I'm not sure whether it's oddly comforting or even more annoying to find that, no, it isn't simply that American media journalists are more interested in shallow entertainment topics than they are in serious matters that affect us all, as some people seem to believe...they really do just suck across the board, in every area.

Yeah, the article was piss-ass poor, but I thought overall the spot that aired on TV was pretty decent. Still impressive that something as big as ABC World Nightly News did a brief story on X Japan. I, for one, eagerly await hearing the new album, with the new recordings of Endless Rain, Rusty Nail, etc. :)

Well, yeah, that goes without saying! So I take it they've released a partial track list?

Back when they had to change their name to X Japan from X, they got some decent US coverage as they were planning their somewhat failed first US tour. Perhaps memories are long? Nah, that is giving them too much credit. The basic fact that X is back = win.

What was the full story behind the derailment of that first planned tour, again? It was pretty dramatic as I recall.

I think it had something to do officially with Toshi's outrageously thick accent....


The only confirmed songs are Kurenai, Rusty Nail, Endless Rain, one mroe old song, I wanna say X, Jade and I.V. But it is supposed to be 100% english.

Yes, well, this is now, and that was back back in what? 1992 or 93? Whenevr Art of Life came out, as that was to be their debut album in the us.

A fair point.

Accent was part of it. The legal battle over the name was a drain on resources, Yoshiki was recovering from a major medical issue and the normal diverging of interests within the band. Promotion was not high and financial backers were getting nervous. This was right around the time of the bubble bursting in the JPN economy as well.

I thought I remembered a story about Yoshiki basically going insane while a couple of the others came down with some horrible illness at the same time...though I realize the Yoshiki going insane part does not exactly narrow down the timeline a whole lot. :P

I recall being told that yes, Yoshiki went crazy (again), Toshi had some nasty throat problems(surgery even?) and was it Heath that also got really sick? Wasn't the nervous backers due partly to the fact that they planned to release a 30 minute song as their first album as well? Hopefully this time will go better. I do hope the new album gets released as an actual CD here, and not just on iTunes.
