#WeAreX #XJapan Documentary On Blu-ray, DVD & Digital HD On April 25

On Tuesday, April 25, WE ARE X, the transcendent and captivating rock 'n' roll documentary about one of the most successful bands in history, X JAPAN, arrives on Blu-Ray™, DVD and Digital HD from Magnolia Home Entertainment under the Magnet Label. From director and acclaimed documentarian Stephen Kijak (Stones in Exile, Scott Walker: 30 Century Man), and produced by the Oscar-winning production team behind Searching for Sugar Man, WE ARE X profiles the blockbuster Japanese rock band X JAPAN and its enigmatic frontman YOSHIKI--composer, classically trained pianist, drummer and the creative force behind the band's wild success.

Featuring interviews with Gene Simmons, Marilyn Manson, Stan Lee and more, WE ARE X dives into YOSHIKI's life and X JAPAN's attempt to break into the American music industry. Supported by concert footage, band interviews and fan photos, the compelling film takes a look at X JAPAN's hardships and conflicts including suicide and cultism. Also spotlighting the band's triumphs, WE ARE X explores the group's phenomenal success, boasting more than 30 million albums and singles sold, countless sold-out concerts around the world, and fans in North America, Europe, Latin America and South East Asia.

Special features for WE ARE X include deleted scenes featuring Hello Kitty designer Yuko Yamaguchi and clips from Kitty Con, the New Economy Summit, Tateyama and the X Museum, as well as deleted interviews with members of X JAPAN. Extras also include seven interview vignettes with YOSHIKIi about WE ARE X, and two live performances, "Forever Love" and "Kurenai," from X JAPAN's 1997 "The Last Live" concert at the Tokyo Dome. A tribute to the band with the "Born to be Free" Fan Video featuring concert footage and global fan interviews is also included. The documentary will be available on Blu-ray and DVD for the suggested retail price of $29.98 and $26.98, and on Digital HD via iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Video and additional digital retailers on April 25.
