Art Cube, which had been under label owner Tomozo’s management for years under SEQUENCE RECORDS and then DUAL CORE SOUND ENTERPRISE, transferred to Real Style Creation in April last year. Despite the move, they continued to participate in DUAL CORE events and interact with the label’s bands while under new management.
An announcement went up on DUAL CORE’s home page at midnight Japan time last night — or this morning, depending on how you slice it — stating that Art Cube is back! And not only are they back, they have in the works their first release for DUAL CORE in a year and a half.

And that’s not all! On top of the Art Cube-only excitement, DUAL CORE SOUND has a couple of multi-artist happenings coming up that are worth noting — primarily, the release of the DUAL CORE SUMMIT 2013 DVD and a label in-store event to commemorate the release.
Despite the limited nature of Art Cube’s new release, overseas fans do have the opportunity to purchase the DUAL CORE SUMMIT DVD through CDJapan or Brand X, though only label mail order customers can receive a bonus CD.
