  • Yura, Miyako, Rei and Rin formerly from Guso Drop appear to be forming a new group.
  • NEVE SLIDE DOWN are disbanding.
  • NECRONOMIDOL to tour the West Coast of America in December.
  • Former DEEP GIRL member Riico is forming a new unit.
  • WACK and Scrambles to release a self-cover album to celebrate the 3rd anniversary of WACK.
  • MIGMA SHELTER release second single “Amazing Glow”.
  • Oyasumi Hologram to release 3 EPs in November.
  • Dots release a very unique third single.
  • MAPLEZ announce details of their 8th single.
  • Kaqriyo Terror Architect preview new song “Yubikiri Genman”.
