X JAPAN And EMI Music Announce North American Agreement

release / X JAPAN

X JAPAN, one of the most successful rock bands in Japanese history, and EMI Music have signed an exclusive three-year manufacturing and distribution agreement that will have EMI Label Services handle the band's releases in North America. The first release will be the track Jade on March 15th.

The X JAPAN/EMI agreement comes on the heels of X JAPAN s U.S. concert debut last August at Lollapalooza, and the band's first-ever North American tour that wrapped up on October 10 with a sold out show at New York s Roseland Ballroom.

"We are so honored to have X JAPAN as part of the EMI / CAROLINE family. After the highly successful North American tour last fall, the timing is perfect for the upcoming X JAPAN release" , says EMI s executive vice-president and general manager Mike Harris.

Added Executive Vice President EMI Music Services North America, "We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with X JAPAN. They have cultivated a strong following in the U.S. and we look forward to working with them, helping to reach even more fans."

(Outside of North America, including Japan, X JAPAN s management is in the process of closing deals. )

To support the new album, X JAPAN plans to tour extensively in 2011.
