In time for their 20th anniversary, MERRY (メリー) will release a new full album.

Strip will be released in multiple types on November 3rd and it will be the first release without guitarist Kenichi, who departed back in September 2020.

First announced back in August, the album reveal was quite a surprise to some, as it was not only their new CD release since 2019's For Japanese sheeple, but also initially came with a controversial new visual in which most of the members sported black skin and vocalist Gara was in the nude. However, as of today, the band has unveiled a new artist photo wearing the same costumes sans the black paint (and Gara has clothes this time).

Centered around a psychedelic theme, the album will come with 11 brand new songs! The limited edition will also include a live CD featuring the band's set from their first date of their ongoing 20th anniversary tour, based on their first album, Gendai STOIC (現代ストイック) (more details below).
