Get well soon, YOSHIKI!

An initiative from Xplosion, that gives you the opportunity to send Yoshiki your kindest get-well-soon messages. The messages WILL be delivered to him when they gathered enough.

So take your chance!!

5:51 pm - Selling I. V. photobook from the March concerts.

Hey guys!

I'm selling the I. V. photobook I got from the X concerts earlier in the year. It isn't available in stores.

It contains photos, discographies, interviews and much more including a timeline from their first activities right through to the present day. There's even special photos from the I. V. music video!

You can place a bid here. I have 100% positive feedback. Thanks ^_^

6:45 pm - X-Japan Concerts postponed indefinitely

"The recently reunited X Japan rock band has postponed its international tour indefinitely, as of June 8. This indefinite postponement affects the previously announced tour stops in Paris, France on July 5; Taipei, Taiwan on August 2; and New York City, United States on September 13. X Japan leader Yoshiki Hayashi's chronic herniated disc and tendinitis had worsened, so his doctors ordered him to stop his activities until further notice. As result, ticket sales for the world tour have been stopped.

Yoshiki's doctors advised him to wear a corset during his band's Tokyo Dome concerts on three consecutive nights in March, but he decided not to wear it. His chronic condition worsened during the May concerts that marked former X Japan member Hideto "Hide" Matsumoto's death. According to a party close to Yoshiki, the musician is recuperating at his Los Angeles home while noted doctors of Western and Eastern medicine attend to him. Another source says that Yoshiki received a deluge of requests to perform in other cities besides the three already announced, before news came of Yoshiki's worsening condition."

I'm sure this is all very disappointing news to us all. But you have to admit, Yoshiki has been pushing himself extremely hard this year. Let's all wish Yoshiki a speedy recovery!

10:41 am - Yoshiki/X-Japan News

X-Japan is holding concerts at the Tokyo Dome on March 28th and 30th. Tickets go on sale on February 24th. For more info visit J-rock revolution at http://www.jrockrevolution.com/

I.V. will be officially released on Itunes on January 23rd. Unlike Sex and Religion's test mix, it will have a wider release. According to J-rock Revolution, the following countries should see the release on Wednesday: Japan, Korea, America, Canada, England, Australia, New Zealand, France, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Spain, Finland, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxemburg, Holland, Norway, Austria, Portugal, Swiss, Sweden, with Thailand, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong soon to follow. A clip from the PV has been posted on J-Rock Revolution, linked above.

Given that SAW 4 was already released via Region 5 dvd, and yesterday in Japan, it is likely that people will attempt to rip the song from the DVD release. If you are any sort of real fan, don't hesitate to purchase a legit copy of the song via Itunes as sales on there could secure future official releases in your respective countries.

Yoshiki is currently producing and providing some music for the film "Repo! The Genetic Opera". Despite the current writer strike, the movie is currently still scheduled to be released on April 25th. Filming began back in September, 07.

12:37 pm - I.V. plus 2008 concert

Okay, first up:

I assume I'm not the only one on here who plans on making the journey to Japanland should X-Japan's proposed 2008 concert go ahead. I'm worried that it will sell out before I get a chance to buy tickets though. Gah. It would be great if we could get a group together and organise something... we could even share a hotel room to cut down on expenses :)

Also, I assume there's no news on when I.V. is going to be released on CD? I'm worried that it won't get a release outside Japan, as I believe Violet UK's stuff for Catacombs was limited to the Asia area.

Anyway. Thoughts?

Crossposted for teh lulz.

Hello, violetuk!

I'm the Site Coordinator of Jrock Revolution, the music organization that brought Jrock fans a two-day festival in Los Angeles created by YOSHIKI.

YOSHIKI is the Executive Producer of the soundtrack to the movie Catacombs, and chose this movie for the album debut of music from VIOLET UK. The soundtrack comes out Oct. 2 in Japan.

Jrock Revolution will be the exclusive overseas retailer of this album, which also features a track from hide's zilch, hand-selected by YOSHIKI.

We are starting a presale tonight! The first 500 pre-orders will come with a special bonus gift inside. We hope that you will come support the artist you love with a direct purchase from our store.

We also welcome you to come to our site, participate in our forum and contests, and enjoy our content.
