Zebra and Snake announced a new single this week being Empty Love Song. There are no further details known yet, but a new entry has already been made for this single plus you can view the new video.

I have updated the details for The Darkness' latest single Everybody Have A Good Time as there are at least two promotional CD's out there. There are no scans yet.

The final update for today is for メトロノーム's first rare mini-album ヤプーが召喚された街. High resolution scans have been added plus some further details.

It seems that besides the two DVD's that are featured on this website, there is another DVD for the HIGH FIVE mini-album release! This one has a unique sleeve and was apparently for sale at a number of concerts and is similar to the I.M.P CD/DVD release. I was able to find a copy and hope to write more about it in the next week or two once it has arrived!

Two new items have been added for 宇宙戦隊NOIZ: the RISKY DRUG STORE DVD of HIGH FIVE, I have included some screen shots as well, just to give you an idea of what you are missing ;), and the limited fan club CD of GENOM EMOTION has been added which features unique artwork and is the only physical release for this album.

How cool is that? It seems that RunOutGrooves is more popular in Asia (especially in Japan) than in Europe or the US! Out of the 12 artists featured on the website only 3 of them are Japanese. Yet they seem to attract more visitors than the other 9! Maybe I should focus more on Japanese artists in the future..?

宇宙戦隊NOIZ announced that they will release a new album on the 26th of September called METEORS. More details will be posted when they come available.

A new Japanese compilation was released yesterday with the title CRUSH! 3 -90's V-Rock best hit cover LOVE songs-. It features one 宇宙戦隊NOIZ song.

Well that was fast! I discovered them a few days ago and just decided to add them to RunOutGrooves. Who? Lovelife! They have not released a single or album so far, but you can check out three songs which they published a week ago. Enjoy!

Ally Young, who left Mirrors in September last year started a new project called Lovelife. They have unleashed three songs so far which sound pretty good. Check them out! I will monitor them closely and might add them here one day.

It seems that I missed a few scans for Mirrors' debut album Lights And Offerings so I have added the following releases: the UK and German CD releases including the sticker on the jewelcase, the German CD release which was handed out at StyleNite in July 2011, the three exclusive bonus CD's which came with the album and the promotional live CD.

For The Darkness I have added scans of the highly sought after CD-single I Believe In A Thing Called Love from August 2002.

As I already mentioned yesterday, I will add a new Japanese release in the next few days for Gotye. Well, that day is already today (thanks FedEx)! You can now view the Japanese 2CD edition of his masterwork Making Mirrors which includes some nice bonus tracks (or as we would say in the 80's, which includes some nice non-album B-sides).

Mirrors just released a video for their upcoming new single called Hourglass. Not much about this single is known yet except that it will be released on Monday June the 18th and will be available through their official Bandcamp website.

A new artist has been added to RunOutGrooves today. We all know him of his worldwide number one hit Somebody That I Used To Know: it's Gotye! Information about all his releases is scattered over many different websites, so I tried to consolidate everything on one page. Let me know when you have spotted an error or when you think you can contribute to a release! A new Japanese release will be added in the next few days.

At least one "new" release will be added in the next week or two for 宇宙戦隊NOIZ so stay tuned in case you dig them!

Fresh news just came in from Mirrors through their Facebook page:

Currently watching Chris Carter (Throbbing Gristle) live at the De La Warr Pavilion and it's blowing our minds! Now we're thinking... It's been too long. If there are any Mirrors fans still out there, we'll be putting 2 new tracks out on Monday the 18th June.

Two new (well, old) releases have been added for メトロノーム. The first one is an uncommon demo cassette tape for 世界はみんな僕の敵 which was issued in 2001. The other item is a 2003 promotional 3" CD-single for コンピューター which also features a demo recording.

A small update today. I got a nice rare uncut picture disc test pressing in yesterday for The Darkness' Girlfriend 10" shaped picture disc. So far there is only a scan available of the A-side which already took me 2hrs to create, as I have an A4 scanner only, meaning I had to make multiple scans and then allign them correctly to get one image. The other side will be added whenever I get a bigger scanner.

An upcoming update is going to feature two uncommon/rare items by メトロノーム. I hope I get these in the next week or two.
