The show's premiere will coincide with the release of Glay's new single "My Private 'Jealousy'" on November 16.
Glay performed songs for the Kaikan Phrase (Sensual Phrase), Survival 2.7D, and Yamato Takeru anime, as well as for Chris Nahon and Pathé's live-action film adaptation of Mamoru Oshii and Hiroyuki Kitakubo's Blood: The Last Vampire anime. Glay also provided music for Production I.G. and Mamoru Oshii's 2009 short film Je t'aime. Group leader Takuro also composed a theme song in the live-action Nana 2 film, and he and band guitarist Hisashi made cameos as crowd extras in the live-action Casshern film. The band performed concerts in California in 2008 and 2009.
