    Capsule's yet unnamed new song will be a part of some Christmas light show exhibition (?) @Tokyo next month. Natalie.mu has more details on it...

    If the background being "CAPSULE" can be taken for anything, apparently this is another new track that Nakata played during his set recently. Look forward to the new album totally imitating Knife Party, I...guess. http://instagram.com/p/ulc7kULtdi/

    My favorites off "CAPS LOCK" were only "CONTROL", "SHIFT" (which should have been "the lead song" tbh) and "RETURN" (I dig the YMO-ish sound here) :(

    My favorite recent song was "DELETE," and I hope they do another song like that one. I'm looking forward to their upcoming release. Please, be good.

    Alright, new update: the album isn't even finished being made. I'm going to go out on a limb and say the earliest it can be expected is the first two weeks of December, otherwise it's probably coming Jan-Feb next year. They announced it way too soon.

    @uchuustation: "very dancey and melodic, and toshikos voice was heavily edited" can literally mean them going backwards this time (WoF/SW?)

    I used to REALLY REALLY love capsule, now I only like to sometimes listen to the older stuff because memories... there's a few songs I like to revisit from past LDK, but it isn't all that many. FLASH BACK is still pretty important as a whole, though. I dunno. I really liked at least up through MORE! MORE! MORE! but can't stand most of it now. I am not sure why. :/ ah well. like, I went back and listened to FRUITS CLiPPER one time, and it was so weird. I used to LOVE that album. now? not so much.

    I actually tried remaking something from their song, In The Rain. Tried my best to make it sound almost exact. http://clyp.it/rcxhldyk

    capsule barely does promo for their releases. The extent is a club tour (didn't happen with CAPS LOCK due to it being "unsuited for live performance") after the album release, a couple of print interviews, and one or two radio things. So this upcoming 15th album will have a smattering of magazine spots + radio interview and maybe an album tour that'll last a month or two after the release. As for updates, someone said Nakata played a new capsule song at a recent DJ event and that it was "very dancey and melodic, and toshikos voice was heavily edited. not as vocaloid-ish as caps lock though." I have a feeling album info and the requisite digital single will be out later this month, and the album is definitely coming in either late November or early December.

    v will be more probable from him to release it in December at this point though...unless he decides to fuck all the promo and put it out next month.

    It'd be funny if he released it Dec.31
