X Japan Signs With EMI Music North America

Post by Chocobopal »

The rock band X Japan has signed a three-year contract with EMI Music North America, with the first single release scheduled for March 15. The single, titled "Jade," is going to be the band's first single in North America.

Band leader Yoshiki said that they are also planning for an album in summer, and a tour before the end of the year. Yoshiki will also launch a monthly one-hour radio program called Yoshiki Radio on the American satellite network Sirius XM Radio.

The band made its American debut last year with a performance at the rock festival Lollapalooza and other venues. X Japan has created music for anime works such as the X² music video collection and the X film.
So meaning any Yoshiki and X Japan fans will be getting a one hour special a month with Yoshiki on the mic with his engrish skills, and more X japan music to hear before the newest cd releases.
