URBANGARDE will release a deluxe edition of their next album, TOKYOPOP, scheduled for release on January 1, 2020.

The concept album includes new songs, self-covers, and remixes of past hits in a techno-pop style. The deluxe limited edition will contain a poster and 100-page hardcover art and photo book “Tokyo Bakuhatsu” (“Tokyo Explosion”) with photos by Ivana Micic, depicting the band members in a theme of “Wild Tokyo” designed by URBANGARDE band leader Temma Matsunaga.

TOKYOPOP will include 6 new songs, including “Kotoba Uri” and “Tokyo wa Ryou wa Reiji”, along with newly-recorded versions of previously-released tracks like “Shuusei Shuugisha (SHINJUKU SYNDROME ver.)” and “Skirt Kakumei (ROPPONGI ROUGE ver.)” and remixes of “Video no Youni” by Seiho and “One Piece Shinjuu” by Yunomi.

On January 31, 2020, URBANGARDE will begin their “URBANGARDE 2020 TOKYOPOP TOUR”, the band’s most expansive tour ever, spanning 18 venues across Japan.
