RHEDORIC has announced some special privileges for those who purchase Jiggy 2nd Press through TOWER RECORDS:
Anyone who brings the title strip to a November concert will receive 1,000 yen off the ticket price.
Those who purchase from TOWER RECORDS will receive a bonus “cover single CD,” which contains 2 tracks (of 4 possible) of RHEDORIC covering a song from its members' previous bands. There's a TOTAL OBJECTION, Misery, Deshabillz, and carat track, although the band doesn't specify which songs were covered.
Also limited to TOWER RECORDS: each customer will receive 1 random (of 5 possible) “Jiggy another Jacket”. These are alternative jackets; one designed by each member, and a special secret fifth.
I'd really like to get the cover CDs, especially the Deshabillz one ;_; Unfortunately, these privileges are only available in store. For a list of participating stores, see this tweet.
Does anyone know what happened to Deshabillz? Their page seems to have been removed from the official website, and I haven't been able to find any information as to whether or not they are still active.
Oh, and this is a bit gossipy, but does anyone know why so many people in Japan seem to dislike Shun? If you take a quick look at the Deshabillz thread on 2ch you'll see people flaming and insulting him -- why?
① Megaromania announced their first mini albums maybe a week after their first singles were release. Well here we go again~ A new single/live series has been announced, before their mini albums have even come out. The new single is to be released in two types, each one featuring the same title track, which was written by KISAKI. (I know many will roll their eyes at that, but it's really a good thing; KISAKI wrote really nice songs for Deshabillz, and some of his solo stuff is AWESOME.)
② To celebrate the release of their new single, Megaromania will be holding a three-day sponsored event in October and a oneman in November. The three-day event is entitled 美醜の館 -Cardinal Circle- (Bishuu no Kan -Cardnial Circle-) and will take place on October 24th through the 26th. The oneman, called The Birth of Creation -天地創造- (The Birth of Creation -Tenchisouzou-), is to be held at Meguro Rock Maykan on November 23rd.
③ A preview of Megaromania's PV is up at VISUNAVI.
④ Those who purchase all three of Deshabillz' UNDER CODE releases from the UNDER CODE NET SHOP will now receive a live DVD as a privilege. The same goes for those who purchase both types of Megaromania's upcoming mini albums, all three of ゾディア's (Zodia's) singles, or chariots' PV DVD.

⑤ A new layout/userinfo for this community should be coming soon!
① I'll get right to it. The UNDER CODE PRODUCTION OHP was updated this morning with additional details about several upcoming releases. The cover art of three CDs (by ClearVeil, chariots, and Dali) was posted along with some previously unannounced tracklistings/release information. Covers can be found at the new release page and the new information can be found below.

① (Both of these are kind of late updates, but that's the fun of being in school) Brand X has posted information for the final release of Anjyu'. Unsurprisingly, it's a best album (thus making Anjyu', what, the fourth UNDER CODE band to announce one recently?). As of right now, it seems that none of the tracks will be remastered or re-recorded, but there is a new track (or multiple new tracks?). It's also not really clear of the album will contain tracks only from their time as an UNDER CODE band or if it will also include songs released while they were with HOLIDAY. In any case, the album, entitled Anjyu' ベスト [Anjyu' BEST], will be released on 5/21, and will contain 12 songs for the price of 3,150 yen. (The product code is ANCD-001, for anyone who cares~)
② Along with the announcement of their best album, details for Anjyu''s (that looks weird) final live, comments from each of the members, and pictures of their new costumes have been posted at the UNDER CODE PRODUCTION OHP. Their last live will be a oneman event that will take place on 5/31. Those who attend that (and an Anjyu' event that will be held the day before) will receive some sort of memorial item. Details of their live, the members' comments, and images of their new costumes can be find at their official profile.
③ Remember the huge title that was chosen for Deshabillz' upcoming single? It's been changed. No worries, though; it's still insanely long. The new title is 傍観者/コノ罪ニツイテ・・・～実の生る木は花から知れると教えよう・・・汚れた皆さんお久し振りです,汚れた皆様はじめまして・・・～ [Boukansha / KONO Tume NI TSUITE・・・ ～Jitsu no Naru Ki wa Hana Kara Shireru to Oshieyou・・・ Yogoreta Minasan Ohisashiburi Desu, Kegareta Minasama Hajimemashite・・・～]. Exciting~
① Earlier this month, KISAKI announced that he would be composing the first revival single for Deshabillz (a "legendary" group that had disbanded in 1998). Well, Brand X just listed the single (which means you can now pre-order it), and it's apparently being published with UNDER CODE. Although I doubt this means Deshabillz is part of the label, it's still pretty cool. Since it's an UNDER CODE release, information is below.
② Brand X also posted information for a CD we didn't know about~ We can now add Siva to the list of UNDER CODE bands with a best album. Siva's best album is entitled COPY, and it will contain tracks that are (for the most part) from releases that have sold out. Some of the songs will be remastered, but no specific titles are mentioned. Details belowwww.
