La Veuve Moustachue (aka "hige no mibōjin" in Japanese) is releasing an album on vinyl! This unit of Kishino You-ichi and composer/pianist Gary Ashiya first released a 5-song mini-album of the same title in 2002. All of those 5 songs are included here, but in either re-recorded or remastered versions, but also 6 brand new songs are featured along!

La Veuve Moustachue has toured in several countries and amazed audiences with its charming musical-like performance that involves a large screen with synced video, and the witty lyrics in which the mustached widow (acted by Kishino You-ichi) tells about her feelings.

A Japan tour is taking place until the end of November (although the Tokyo show has already past... sorry I'm late!). Check out the trailer clip below!
