URBANGARDE will release their 10th anniversary album Shoujo Fiction (“Girl Fiction”) on April 4, 2018.
Since the 2008 release of Shoujo wa Nido Shinu (“Girls Only Live Twice”), which introduced vocalist Yoko Hamasaki as a bloody, sword-wielding schoolgirl in “Don’t Take Off Your Sailor Fuku”, URBANGARDE has built a dedicated international following for their outrageous visuals and challenging lyrical themes.
Over the past decade, URBANGARDE has produced nine albums, two mini-albums, seven singles, and four DVDs, plus multiple books and solo releases from Hamasaki and co-vocalist Temma Matsunaga. The band has also performed concerts overseas at Japan Expo in France and A-Kon in the United States.
URBANGARDE will hold a special 10th anniversary concert event titled “Kekkon Shiki” at Nakano Sun Plaza on April 8th to celebrate the new album. The deluxe edition of Shoujo Fiction will come with a 24-page booklet and DVD with 4 music videos. Special bonuses at Japanese retailers including an acoustic CD (Tower Records), instrumental tracks (HMV), photo clear file (Disk Union), and “Shoujo Fiction” original novella written by Temma Matsunaga (Village Vanguard).
