[April Fools Day Article] New X Japan branded Tissues going on sale


Apparently yesterday’s accouncement about X Japan’s US tour in summer and details about the album release aren’t all news yet. After Yoshikitty, Y Wine, Yoshikimono and many other products, X Japan are now also planning to take their spot in the tissue market with a new brand called “Dry your Tears with Love“, named after a line of their famous song “Tears“.

The idea came up when discussing the past of X Japan and all the drama surrounding the band before a screening of the “We are X” documentary that brings tears to the eyes of everyone watching it. Because of this, the first place you can get your hands on the limited exclusive first edition of the “Dry your Tears with Love” tissue boxes (pictured below) will be for the screenings of “We are X” at Japanese theaters from April 14th, for free with each ticket. The regular edition will hit all major convinience store chains throughout Japan starting on May 1st. Details will be released soon!

April Fools’ Day on Xplosion


Dear X Japan Fans,

We think most of you have already noticed by now, all the news we posted today are part of our „April Fools’ Day“ Special and therefore not true. So unfortunately the X JAPAN New Album & Japan Tour news, as well as the Yoshiki vs. Yoshikitty and the ToshI with Queen news were completely invented by us and won’t happen. Even though we have to say that we would love to see them happen!

As for the new album and tour news, we are inviting X JAPAN to copy&paste them on their website and make this wish come true!!!

We hope you were not too angry about our April Fools’ day joke but had a good time trying to fool your friends as well!

Let’s hope we’ll get some real news soon!


Here are our April Fools’ News posts, enjoy… ;)

親愛なるX JAPANファンのみなさん

ほとんどの方はもうお気づきだと思いますが、私た ちが今日投稿したすべてのニュースは、私たちの「エイプリルフール特別企画」で、真実ではありません。残念ながらX JAPANのニューアルバム&ジャパンツアーのニュースも、YOSHIKI vs Yoshikitty、そしてToshlとQueenのニュースも、完全に私たちの創作で、実際に起こるものではありません。ぜひとも実現するのを見てみ たいと言わずにはいられませんが!

ニューアルバムとツアーのニュースについては、私たちはX JAPANに、彼らのウェブサイトにそれらをコピー&ペーストして、この願いを叶えてくれるよう勧めています!!

[April Fools Day Article] ToshI joins Queen for live shows!


ToshI will partake in the upcoming  Queen + Adam Lambert World Tour this June.

The legendary rock band will soon announce another round of concerts world-wide, including several concerts in South-East Asia in the middle of 2015. It has leaked that ToshI will join Queen on stage for three concerts in Japan – Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto. Queen has already confirmed one show in Rio de Janiero for November 18th 2015, at the Rock in Rio music festival.

The band has recently concluded a world tour in 2014-15, where they held 61 concerts total, including two in Japan – Osaka on August 16th and Tokyo on August 17th.

This will not be the first time for ToshI to collaborate with members of the band: In 1994 he and Yoshiki worked together with Queen’s drummer Roger Taylor for the Great Music Experience project, backed by UNESCO.

[April Fools Day Article] Yoshiki vs. Yoshikitty piano battle at Puroland


After the enormous success and the attention Yoshiki gained around the world for his piano battle with a holographic version of himself at the SXSW Festival private event of the FLAUNT Magazine in Austin,Texas last year, he now decided to have another battle. This time he wants to play against the hologram of Yoshikitty.

The event should take place on May 15th in Sanrio Puroland in Tokyo, where he already appeared at the parade last November.  This is just the start for more special appearences of Yoshiki and the other band members to promote the upcoming X Japan Japan-wide tour. Further details will be announced soon and more information regarding the Tour can be found here.
