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.
