Here's a roundup of the latest news related to ARLEQUIN, ISORA, ヴァリル, SIVA, E'm ~grief~, 凛 -THE END OF CORRUPTION WORLD-, MASKED RIDER SYSTEM, and Vior gloire.
アルルカン will begin their latest collaboration with Like an Edison on 2014-10-20. Like before, it includes special instores, shopping bags, etc., but more importantly, they'll distribute a new song called Ichijiku (無花果). Also like before, Like an Edison is an asshole, so this only applies in store; web orders won't include the distributed CD.
ヴァリル (ex-Visage vocalist new band) will release their maxi-single, [Aitou] (哀悼), in 2015. Their celebration event, Kaihou Junrei -Daiisshou- (解放巡礼 -第一章-), will be on 2015-01-23 at Ikebukuro (池袋) EDGE.
By the way, please check ヴァリル's YouTube channel for various samples, live clips, announcement movies, etc..
Here's a sample from MASKED RIDER SYSTEM's upcoming single:
Soon-to-disband super indie band, Emlibeur, released their first (and last) single on 2014-10-19. Interestingly, they thanked ex-Vior gloire vocalist shall in the credits, so I guess he helped them somehow :) Here's a sample of some other songs from them, just for kicks:

ISORA will hold their threeman, Butterfly Effect, with DISGUST and CielGrave on 2014-12-05 at LIVE HOUSE D'.
