Versailles Makes a Comeback With an Announcement of a New Album

The Visual Kei band Versailles announced that they are planning to release their fifth album, titled LINEAGE ~Bara no Mitsuei~ (translated as “descendant of the roses”), on February 14th. The five-member band, which is fronted by vocalist KAMIJO, hasn’t released an album for almost four-and-a-half years since the release of their self-titled album in 2012.

This long-awaited album will be released on the same day as  Versailles’ Budokan live.

Take a look at the tracklist as well as the member’s comments below the cut! You can also hear snippets of each track within the videos.

Track 01: La Musique

Track 02: Shadows Fang

Track 03: Inheritance

Track 04: A Day Without You

Track 05: Lineage

Track 06: Marionette

I remember when I first saw Versailles. They were performing at a Washington DC area anime convention called Anime USA while promoting their debut album. There wasn’t a lot of people attending the concert as I remember the room being like 3/4 empty. However, they became somewhat popular internationally  over the years.  Though, I might be wrong.

I just regret selling my signed copy of their debut album as their music is laudable.

      Are they finally coming back?!? HELL YEAH! Been waiting for this moment since they announced their hiatus, i’m gonna check out the new tracks right now!

      • They’ve been back for quite sometime now actually. Had their reunion show early last year and had a Best Of album out later with two new tracks. I did an interview with them recently and they said that they wanna go international even more than before, so I guess their upcoming EU tour is just the beginning.

      They are so good! I’m glad they’re back. I’ve missed their music so much and it sounds great so far. I can’t wait for more!

      Weird coincidence, I just noticed that someone finally subbed their drama this morning.
