I wrote a post about the Japanese heavy metal band X-Japan (they were simply called “X” when I first came to Japan).
I was surprised by the negative comments that post I wrote received from a number of X-Japan fans overseas! The post is here, by the way.
Well, X-Japan has released a new English-language song via i-tunes.
It’s currently available to for download in America and Europe.
The price is £0.79 (which equals about US$1.27 (or ¥102)).
(Click here if you want to download it from i-tunes.)
It will be available for download in Japan and Asia on 2011 July 13.
The song is titled “Jade“.
Here’s the video for the song:
Also, X-Japan is currently on a short world tour.
They just played a concert in London on Tuesday (July 28) and then they play a few more shows around Europe.
Then on August 13 they’ll be in Osaka, Japan and on August 14th they’ll play in Tokyo.
From there, they’ll play some shows in Central America.
