(Belated) welcome to July! For those of you who look in on these release schedules regularly, you will probably notice the amount of full albums have slightly decreased this month compared to the previous ones. However, we’re getting a slight increase of singles. So while you give your wallet a small breather from high-priced albums, why not check out a single or two by a band you’ve yet to try out? You might just find your next favorite Jrock band on one of the gentler-priced releases below!

Have a happy and safe Independence Day, my fellow Americans. And, I’ll see you all next month!
