Having celebrated their 32nd-anniversary this year, BUCK-TICK, have built up enough deserved acknowledgment of their influence on the Japanese music industry to be releasing tribute albums—and they’re already on their third! BUCK-TICK will be releasing their third tribute album PARADE III ~RESPECTIVE TRACKS OF BUCK-TICK~ on January 29, 2020, with a strong host of artists covering a range of tracks from a 30-year-long discography.
To give us a first tease of what to expect they have disclosed, on their special tribute album website, an inventory of the 13 artists who will be featured on the album.
- Der Zibet
- DIR EN GREY
- Shiina Ringo
- minus (-) featuring Fujikawa Chiai
- Cube Juice
- Kokusyoku Sumire
- 88Kasyo Junrei
- Fujimaki Ryota
- Sakamoto Miu
The illustrator behind the as-yet-undisclosed album artwork has also been revealed to be Aquirax Uno (alias of Uno Akira). The illustrator has previously worked with BUCK-TICK for the artwork of their 2010 Razzle Dazzle studio album—so we anticipate the revealing of a flamboyant album cover in the future.
As of yet, no details have been released on which songs these artists will be covering. So for now, lets fantasize about the songs we’d like the see included. What songs would you like to see these artists cover?
