Let the news about late-year WACK releases begin apace! First up is GANG PARADE, whose GANG PARADE take themselves higher!! will drop near the end of November:

I’m guessing that it won’t sound like a Jackie Wilson jam, either
I was going to say, I hope that it works out better than “Beyond the Mountain,” but how did other people feel about that. I heard mostly middling things, which seemed about right.
Still, though, it must have sold well enough for T-Palette to say “all right, let’s do an album.” I just secretly root really hard for Yuyu, so good things for GANG PARADE are good things in general, even if they’ve managed to go way beyond the content scope of this site. The title implies ambition, which could also be completely meaningless because words in idol either mean everything or nothing, and sometimes both, at all times.
This release date gives Watanabe almost four full months to send GANG PARADE on another ridiculous swerve. I wonder what it’ll be this time! I still think they should pick up all of the leftover SiS and Especia material and go all in on a mix of vaporwave, city pop and slightly silly piano ballads.
