As for the North American release of volume 57, well, it hasn’t been announced yet.

Volume 54 is scheduled for a January 1st release, while Bleach volume 55 on February 5th, 2013.
Annnnnd all of it was nearly meaningless or referring to really simple plot points in stupidly elaborate metaphorical terms, and all that really happened in those volumes was Ichigo sneaks into Soul Society and runs around a blank de-populated white city getting into long boring fights. :I Hahaha, every single Bleach volume cover has a blank white background? How did I not know about this?
The release date for Bleach Manga Volume 64 in North America has not yet been announced. Bleach Volume 61, which releases August 5th will be the latest to be released there.
