Default Tokyo Jihen - Phase 3

So when is this happening? Never?
Usually bands inform the fans about their status - especially if the lead vocalist ventures to a side project that spawns an album (and a single, and a vinyl, and DVD-audio).

Is Tokyo Jihen currently in production? Post-production? Menopause?
Shéna did hint in the fan newsletter a while back that she was waiting for Hata to recover, but judging from the Countdown Japan clip, he seems fine (although, bald). But than again, she also did spend the majority of the newsletter talking about how she loves "black peoples" music.

Basically, is anyone aware of any information about Tokyo Jihen's 3rd album?

Rumor: Mirrorball will have a studio recording.

I can't wait for something new from them either, but do you where I can find a translation of the newsletter?

Mirrorball DOES have a studio recording. Just not by Jihen.

This song is so terribly bad, I'm gonna have to find a way to remove it from the CD if they actually stick it in there.

Oh, please link me to it.
I was only aware of a live version of it by the Petrolz (Ukigumo's band) that some fan recorded. As far as I know, it has never been recorded in a studio (publically or not).

I would love to hear it. Thanks.

^ Yeah, that's definitely Hata.

What's this about a Phase 3? That implies a lineup change instead of simply a new album, but that won't be happening. Not that I wouldn't mind Sugizo or Eric Zay replacing a certain member... Anyway, I predict a new single will be released on June 27 (for obvious reasons).

I don't remember what Mirrorball sounds like now, which is actually a good thing, because the first time I heard it was during the JCHI live itself and I felt like running out of the concert hall and into a washroom to vomit.

I heard it on time... then I wanted to forget it as fast as I could

...with success

I can't remember the song, only that I didn't like it

And to phase 3:
Yeah, first guitar and piano, now it's turn for dums and bass to leave.
That means, that HZM, Hirama, Hata and kameda will form tokyo jihen phase 4 at the same time they are dismissed (So pahse 3 and 4 will coexist). They just need someone new for vocals...
But instead of taking someone new, they lend Shiina Ringo from phase 3 who will then be in two bands, just like HZM. That would make the confusion PERFECT
