    @acidmother: NATSUMEN are indeed confirmed for Next Music from Tokyo vol 3 in October. They're also recording a proper studio album with the hopes of having it ready by about September and possible distribution in N America. It'll be the 1st time they'll compose/arrange songs with an album in mind instead of jamming to create songs for live performances. I heard a couple of the new songs during their one-man @ Shelter in December. SxHxIxT'll be hotter than summer in Botswana.
