REDMAN to Release First Mini-Album

Do you remember REDMAN, the new band of Girugamesh's vocalist Satoshi? They've announced the release of their first mini-album!

We've introduced this band a couple of months ago when they came out of nowhere and announced their first single "Challenge the GAME". Many wondered if this band will last for only a few songs or if Girugamesh will disband but right now it seems like REDMAN doesn't have a bad influence on Girugamesh's activity. Both bands release new CDs and now REDMAN even revealed the release of a mini-album including 6 tracks! The track list isn't available yet but here are a few details: The mini-album is titled "FLAME OF LIFE" and will drop in two months, on February 26th. The price is 1800 Yen.
