X Japan leader Yoshiki Hayashi announced Saturday that the group will be releasing its first album in 20 years.

The drummer, who goes by Yoshiki, made the official announcement on Saturday at the 16th Japan Expo in Paris. It will be the group’s first studio album since 1996’s “Dahlia,” and their sixth overall. According to Yoshiki, the LP will be made up of entirely new material and include “Kiss the Sky,” the song that appears as background music in the group’s “X Day” promotional video.
