Starwave Records has published the following comment about the release:
“First edition bonus: a washing machine! (…Not really.)
To combat the prolonged slump in sales, the appliance industry dispatched ヴィジュアル系 (Visual Kei) in 2014!!
Representing the new possibilities of salaryman x ヴィジュアル系 (Visual Kei), 燭台(怪) (Syokudaikakkokai) form a green room where they can’t even stand up straight, offering their latest CD with entry to the pro wrestling match!”
