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 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.
