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!

Yokohama, Japan — March 10th, 2011 — The Japan Nite tour is about to
take the US by storm once again, and HearJapan is excited to offer up
an exclusive sampler of music from the bands!

HearJapan News

 
This nine track album has music from eight of the bands on the tour.
This year the selection has a rough and raw feel featuring punk, hard
rock and stomping electro from the likes of White White Sisters,
Vampillia, Suck Piggy, Ydestroyde, DJ TERAOKA AND THE REVOLUTION and
Lolita 18. The smooth grooves of sonodaband and ZUZUKANASISTERS serve
as perfect counterpoint. The entire compilation will grab listeners by
the scruff of the neck and never let go. Just like you would expect at
the live show!
 
Fans of the crazy underground Japanese scene might be excited to know
that Vampillia is made up of a large number of big names, like
Chikada, the drummer of World's end girlfriend. There is also drummer
Tatsuya Yoshida from Ruins and Korekyojinn. Then there is Toyohito
Yoshida from exBOREDOMS. In total they have three singers, three
string players, two drummers and more!
 
Japan Nite is the longest running US tour to exclusively feature
Japanese bands. They always have an excellent line-up of bands both
old and new, known and unknown. You will find a lot to love, so don’t
pass up the chance to catch this exciting show!
 
You can get the 100% free sampler, more info, images and videos from
the bands through the link below.

V-ROCK FESTIVAL SPECIAL INTERVIEW with PENICILLIN and D! MJP Sep. 2nd, 2009 @ 03:05 pm
official_mjp
 In 2009 JAPAN will set its attention to the WORLD!
We proudly present this year’s Festival of Festivals!
In October 2009 more than 50 artists will participate
in the world’s largest visual-kei festival ever…V-ROCK! 

Special Corner of V-ROCK FESTIVAL



This year, PENICILLIN is celebrating its 17th anniversary. Although the bassist GISHO separated from the band two years ago, all the other members have remained the same from when they had first formed PENICILLIN. For 2009, they released the single ‘BLACK HOLE’ in May, and now they are set to release a new single titled ‘WARP’ on September 2nd. We heard that they were very excited about their appearance in V-ROCK FESTIVAL, so we decided to visit their recording studio to talk about the new single and the live event.

Ever since forming the band, D had gradually but steadily expanded its fan base and continued reaching a wider audience. In 2007, while they had still been an indie band they performed at Hibiya Open-Air Concert Hall [max capacity 4000 people]. In May 2008 they made their long-awaited major debut. All the singles released after their debut have ranked No.10 or higher on the Oricon Singles Chart. On September 12th they will release the much anticipated 4th single ‘Tightrope’.
One day in August we heard that all the members were getting together at a studio in Tokyo to edit the music video of their new single. We decided to head for the studio to conduct an interview.
