Tak Matsumoto Group is officially back! Their website “” has relaunched under a new domain. To date, there is not much information on the website except their previous discography and an introduction to the members of TMG. What’s important to note is that the website is both available in Japanese and in English.

On the official B’z website, an upcoming album as well as a Japan tour are teased with the relaunch of the site. Further information has not been revealed yet. Perhaps we’re lucky, and the second TMG album will get an international release like the first one did? Would also be nice to have some international dates for a tour and not just a Japan-only tour.

Fingers crossed!
