Today is the release of B’z LIVE-GYM 2017-2018 “LIVE DINOSAUR” on home video! As can be seen above, we have translated the band’s customary release message and archived it for those interested. Both DVD & Blu-ray editions are now available from the following retailers.
Additionally, a digest is now available showcasing several key songs (but not nearly all of them!):
The fifty-third B’z single “Seimei/Still Alive” is now officially on sale! It has debuted at the top of the Weekly Oricon Singles chart with pre-orders sales in excess of 61,000 physical copies already moved. If you still don’t have a copy on the way, you can obtain one via CDJapan, YesAsia, or Amazon Japan.
As is always the case, the band have chimed in with their release message to mark the occasion which we have translated for you below:

What’s more, a making-of video for the special B’z-branded cans of UCC Black that will be available to winners of the 10,000-draw lottery was also made available on YouTube. The tongue-in-cheek video features the beans used to create the coffees being exposed to “Seimei” before being packaged and serves as a solid preview of the song as well:
