In the news this week:

  • An update on Pour Lui’s DiET or DiE challenge
  • Information on new releases announced by Shiina Pikarin, Guso Drop and Malcolm Mask McLaren.
  • A big discussion on the various disbandment and member departure announcements from Hauptharmonie, PiiiiiiiN, Gokigen Teikoku and more

We also share our thoughts on MVs from You’ll Melt More!, Uijin, Band Ja Naimon and Teddyloid feat. Aina the End.
