On Johnny's net there is information up about a new concert tour for Tegomass. The tour begins late October and ends late December.
Also Tegomass were at the Fireworks Festival 2011 and performed a new song there titled Hanabi.
Now this is speculation on my part but it looks like Tegomass will have a new release coming up soon. What it will be single/mini-album/album can be anyone's guess but with a concert tour it would make sense it would have to be something. And I expect to hear news about it when it's around the time Johnny's starts putting out solicitations for October.
It rather makes sense to have Tegomass active near the end of the year as that's when Kanjani8 usually have their concert tours so NEWS can't really be active as a group during that time. As a NEWS fan though I can't help but wish there was a group CD release this year but it just doesn't look like it'll happen. All I can do is hope that Johnny's has figured that the best way to deal with the issue of NEWS is to have Tegomass and/or Yamapi active during this time of year and wait for another time in the year to do something with the full group. That and hope that my worst fears aren't going to be realized next year and have NEWS breakup and just have Tegomass and Yamapi continue on as a duo and a soloist.
