The techno-pop band URBANGARDE are back with the music video for their new single ‘Akumade Akuma‘!

The band’s view that ‘the devil always wins’ in a twisted society from their 2010 album ‘Kizy Darake No Maria’ is re-visted in the new music video. It was shot overlooking Tokyo on a dark, rainy night and displays a battle between desire and purity.

Although the single is titled ‘Akumade Akuma‘, the group uses word play to give their song ‘Akuma des Akuma‘ a triple-meaning using the implied French and Japanese ‘des/desu’. The single is expected to drop on January 4th, 2017, and if purchased at a local store, the single will include the following bonuses:


Tower Records bonus:
DVD “Gasmask Party”
Complete video of the 60-min-long “Gasmask Party”, a frantic live show from last December’s Showa 90 tour where all performers and audience had to wear gas masks.

Village Vanguard bonus:
