There have been rumors about B'z New Single going to be called "DIVE" because when the new flash site was uploaded, it contained a 20 second sample. It was immediately deleted thereafter, but a few people were able to check out the filename which was "DIVE_0514".
Rumors aside, today a new flash video has been added to B'z PARTY's Official Website. Check it out below. "DIVE" will be featured in the new Suzuki Swift Commercial going on air May 30th.

After a long period of silence, there has finally been an update, and a big one at that. Check out the new design of the Official B'z Website!
With that update, a new single has been announced. It will be released on August 5th! No further information was given at this point. The only thing to note is that the new single will contain two A-Sides.
We'll keep you posted.
According to a news update on Stevie Salas' Official Website, Tak Matsumoto(among others) is participating in Stevie Salas' new album "Set it on blast".
I was recording my brand new cd called 'set it on blast' right up to 1 hour before I got on the plane to europe to start this tour... Talk about tight!!! This cd is well funky with brian tichy, matt sorum, tm stevens, steve faronne, joey heredia, dorian heartsong, jara slapbak, bernard fowler, dan rothchild, gandhi, tak matsamoto from the bz japan and a few other cool friends.
This is not unusual as Koshi Inaba has been recording some songs with Stevie Salas in the past, too. For example the English version of "Shoumen Shototsu" called "Head on Collision" which is featured on Stevie Salas' album "Be What It Is"(Amazon.com). Furthermore, Koshi Inaba is featured in Stevie Salas' essential collection called "the sun and the earth"(Amazon.com). There, he plays the harp on the song "Pumpin' It Up".
There has been no word on an overseas release date, but the album will be released in Japan on July 15th, 2009.

"New" you ask? Yeah, I added the quotation marks because it's not really new. I only upgraded my plan to the most recent one which includes an up-to-date OS and a cheaper price. That way, I save 3 Euros a month. Other than that, everything's the same.
If you encounter any problems, just let me know!
