Song snippets were pretty lame. Disappointing it’s another new project and the X album is still unreleased. That being said, this might be my best shot at seeing Yoshiki with my friend. Got him into X over a decade ago and he didn’t get to see them with me. Might fly to NY

So it’s S.K.I.N. with Hyde instead of Gackt?
Cringe name…

Feeling much the same.

I am interested in seeing what they come up with however, new music is always a good thing.

I am sure a lot of X Japan fans will be slightly frustrated by this though...an album that has been in the works for 15ish years, apparently complete, though unreleased, and here we are getting a couple of new songs from Yoshiki in the very near future, from a band that I presume hasn't been together very long at all?

I think this is the last (rusty) nail in the X Japan coffin.

S.K.I.N was Yoshiki's big return to playing drums and first foray into the 'international' market. It fell apart because Gackt got cold feet and Toshi returned to X Japan shortly afterwards. Yoshiki's focus was then going global with X.

It sounds like Yoshiki wasn't able to keep X going with Toshi over the last few years. Maybe Red Swan being listed originally as an X Japan song featuring Hyde was Yoshiki trying to buy more time to get Toshi back on board. That didn't happen, so he decided to revive S.K.I.N with Hyde on vocals.

Either way, we'll never see an album. I'll eat my shoes if we do.

Well, that's disappointing. I check in once every six-ish months to see if there's any actual X news.

What a fizzle out for X this feels like. I know that it isn't a definite end, but come on, the writing has been on the wall for years. It's been excuse after excuse, and a long time coming.

I live in New York and checked on the cost of tickets for seeing Last Rockstars for their live performance here in a few months out of morbid curiosity and the cheapest ticket is $143 USD for standing room only. No thanks. But it's also Ticketmaster, so, no surprise there anyway.

The name of the band should've been Passionate Grannies ft. Sugizo and Miyavi
