Does this qualify as news? Maybe, maybe not. But it’s kind of interesting. Arlequin is apparently no longer under label for ROCKSTAR RECORDS. Record label has traditionally been very important to visual kei musicians, because the label would affect things like PV quality. Fortunately, it’s not as difficult to produce high quality videos as it once was, so the gap is smaller, but label still counts for a lot. I wonder what the reason for their departure was, and if this is a positive or negative sign for the band’s future. In terms of label, you could do a lot worse than ROCKSTAR, but it’s still technically an indie label. That makes it kind of hard to take a guess at things. So I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
