As we reported, Johnny’s Entertainment had had a countdown on their official website, and the mysterious count down officially stopped on April 15th at 12:00AM. When the timer hit 00:00, the huge clock turned into a silhouette of 4 people with some background music. Many people could not see this as the website servers were swamped by people trying to access the site.
Matching up with many fans assumptions, there’s some good news for NEWS fans as it seems the information was about NEWS. The silhouette picture matches up exactly the same as their profile picture on Johnny’s website.
After Yamashita Tomohisa and Nishikido Ryo withdrew from NEWS back on October 2011, fans were hardly able to see their activities as the new 4 member NEWS, Koyama Keiichiro, Kato Shigeaki, Masuda Takahisa and Tegoshi Yuya.
There is no more details and Johnny’s website is currently inaccessible, so stay tuned for more details!
Congratulations for all NEWS fans who had been waiting for this moment!
This might be a preview for their new song:
lol, i don't know if I should cry or be amused that the server crashed when it hit 00:00:00. I can't hear a thing!
The K-chan radio show on Tuesday (or the 4-nin NEWS radio guesting today?) will probably be able to clear more things.
Some people are saying it's gonna be a new single and a BEST OF ALBUM. Not officially confirmed though.
