Tokyo Blade Albums To Be Re-Issued

Classic metal reissue label Lost and Found Records USA has signed a license deal with Razar Ice Records to reissue two rarities from the TOKYO BLADE catalog. In spring of 2008, the albums "Warrior of the Rising Sun" and "Blackhearts and Jaded Spades" will be available on CD, both remastered and with rare bonus material never before available on CD.

"Warrior of the Rising Sun" was originally released in 1985 as a best-of compilation, with tracks from the "Midnight Rendezvous", "Madame Guillotine" EP, and "Night of the Blade" releases. Originally pressed on vinyl and cassette, this will be the first time being offered on CD format. This two CD release will offer the rare pre-TOKYO BLADE KILLER demos from 1981.

"Blackhearts and Jaded Spades" also released in 1985 has been a highly sought after release on CD for collectors worldwide. As bonus material, this reissue will contain the "Cave Sessions" demos, and the 12" "Undercover Honeymoon" release.

TOKYO BLADE management announced a new lineup in early 2008, and tour plans in the fall of 2008. There are also plans in the works for a new TOKYO BLADE album in 2009.

The new TOKYO BLADE line-up includes:

Andy Boulton - Original guitarist and founding member
Bryan Holland - Guitar
Chris Gillen - Vocals
Lorenzo Gonzalez - Bass
Frank Saparti - Drums
