Good news for URBANGARDE fans! The techno-rock band will be making their U.S. debut at A-Kon® 26 in Dallas, Texas. Thanks to their combination schoolgirl fetishes, exorcisms, and giant-baby samurai duels during their live performances and their outrageous videos, URBANGARDE have sold-out multiple shows in Japan and gained an intense worldwide following.

URBANGARDE will perform a live concert with fan Q&A and autograph sessions during the three-day Japanese anime and pop-culture event, June 5-7, 2015. URBANGARDE appears at A-Kon® 26 by arrangement with RESONANCE Media.
