Versailles -Philharmonic Quintet-
Versailles were extraordinarily outward-looking for such a young band, and managed to release their debut mini-album Lyrical Sympathy simultaneously in Japan and Europe. It took the quintet less than a year to play their first overseas shows, joining Matenrou Opera for a European tour in spring 2008.
Enduring the untimely death of bassist Jasmine You in August 2009, Versailles released three albums on major label Warner Music Japan before declaring a hiatus in December 2012. In 2015, the quintet played their first show in three years, and announced a formal reunion in June 2016.
