X Japan premiere film trailer

The trailer for X Japan’s film has been released.

The promo, which features Stan Lee, Marilyn Manson and Kiss’ Gene Simmons, comes as We Are X was screened at SXSW last week, following its premiere at Utah’s Sundance film festival earlier this year.

The band’s mainman Yoshiki has also scheduled an exclusive show at the Paramount Theater in Austin on Friday in support of the film.

Meanwhile, the release of X Japan’s upcoming album has been postponed from March 12 until later this year after guitarist Pata fell seriously ill. Their London Wembley show has also been pushed back until next year.

Details of the album launch will be released in due course.

Former news desk member Christina joined the team in late 2015 and although her time working on online rock news was fairly brief, she made a huge impact by contributing close to 1500 stories. Christina also interviewed artists including Deftones frontman Chino Moreno and worked at the Download festival. In late 2016, Christina left rock journalism to pursue a career in current affairs. That's proved to be a massive success and in 2021, she was named Local Weekly Feature Writer of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards.
