B’z Official Site Update & 20th Anniversary Releases
The official B’z Website was updated just a few hours ago and now features a new, flashy 20th anniversary design. Most importantly, though, a new site related to two new releases has gone online. It may serve as the home for more releases in the future, but for now, only two are listed. The new site’s address is: http://bz20th.com/
