Legendary early 90s visual kei band el:cid will release their first full album!

el:cid was a visual band based in Kyoto (京都) who formed in 1992. They're often said to have been born in the wrong era, adopting elements of shoegaze and digital rock 20 years before they were mainstream.

Despite breaking up at that time, the band has recently attracted attention through its strong online presence. They've even appeared several times in domestic and overseas media.

Now, el:cid has announced the release of a full album!! In the Shade will be released on August 18th.

The album collects material recorded in the late 90s with the help of ex-BEAST's NAGANO—material which was left unreleased due to the band's breakup. In addition to unreleased recordings, the album will include remixed demo tracks and several bonus tracks. Finally, these precious songs from the 90s will be revived in the Reiwa (令和) era!

The album will be published through HAUNTED HOUSE RECORDS and nationally distributed via FWD Inc. (Free-Will). Preorders will be accepted through the HAUNTED HOUSE web shop from May 21st, and those preorders will be fulfilled in late July.

CD is up to buy at CDJapan now too. Without the bonus CD, but when you feel a proxy is too troublesome you still can get 15 stunning tracks easily!

I don't know if they released the tracklist yet but it's supposed be 6 other demo tracks. No clue if they're unreleased ones or ones from YT or what.

Yes, it's gonna be 6 bonus CD-R demo tracks CD. All tracks will receive some quality upgrade.

Only "Shayou" is confirmed. The others not yet. So maybe some songs who are currently new uploaded will be the choose ones maybe there will be other unknown tracks. They still have about a month to decide it.
