OFF-TOPIC: X JAPAN Announces New Album! April Fool's Joke or the Real Deal?

A recent article on Oricon News has stated that X JAPAN will be releasing their new album on June 30th! The announcement was made via a special March 31st - April 1st broadcast of YOSHIKI's online niconico web channel "YOSHIKI CHANNEL".

According to the article, the special broadcast was in commemoration of the successful run of X JAPAN's documentary film, "WE ARE X" in cinemas. It also included a comment from popular film director Takashi Miike and LUNA SEA's Shinya and INORAN.

While this is certainly great news, after the announcement, it was revealed that it was an April Fool's joke. But what if it isn't?

As of now, there has been no follow-up announcement on any of the official websites or social media. Looking at their current tour dates, it does seem possible so fans are reasonably excited but taking it with a rather large grain of salt.

What do you readers think? Something great to look forward to, or too good to be true?
