After 20 years, 13 million albums and 16 million singles sold, famed rock group L’Arc~en~Ciel is gearing up for a historic performance as the very first Japanese act to headline New YorkÂ¹s legendary Madison Square Garden.
Formed in Osaka in 1991, L’Arc~en~Ciel (the name means â€œrainbowâ€ in French) gained acclaim for their glam-influenced stage fashions, frenetic live shows, and punk/new wave inspired music. The group has achieved legendary status at home and abroad, and its new album BUTTERFLY will be released on iTunes in much of the world outside of Japan in March.
The album also includes the hit song â€œGood Luck My Wayâ€ as featured in the movie Â version of the iconic and highly popular anime full-length feature film, Fullmetal Alchemist: The Star of Milos. This bandÂ¹s hit single â€œReady Steady Goâ€ was used in the soundtrack of the original Fullmetal Alchemist television series featured on Cartoon Networkâ€™s Adult Swim.
LÂ¹Arc-en-CielÂ¹s lead singer and occasional guitarist hyde has called BUTTERFLY â€œa monumental album, itâ€™s great that we can release the album just at the right time.â€
