In celebration of our milestone of 10 thousand likes on Facebook, we dearly want to thank everyone who has supported us throughout the (almost) two years since JROCK NEWS officially launched. Without your support, we wouldn’t be able to meet a lot of the great people we have during our journey. Without the blessing of our friends, we wouldn’t be able to receive such an amazing kick start, specifically JPU Records, SALTY DOG, Nyanko Scandal Factory, OROCHI, V.I.P., and last but not least, Shota from ADAMS who sadly is no longer with us.

So to take action and truly display our gratitude in making this site such a fun and friendly community, we teamed up with our humble friends over at V STAR PROMOTION to fire off our biggest giveaway ever, our “MEGA Visual Kei Giveaway“. We knew that any of you would be happy to receive visual kei CDs, but we didn’t stop there! The most alluring concept of this giveaway is actually that all CDs are signed by the band members themselves! To top it off, we’ve also added some merchandise items which you likely won’t be able to get your hands on anymore.


The band Sick. was kind enough to give us some of their sick looking lighters as well, but unfortunately upon researching the rules set by the customs, it looks like we’re unable to send flammable goods.
