Secretive vocalist to release The Hyde publication on January 29

The L'Arc-en-Ciel and Vamps rock band vocalist Hyde announced on Tuesday that he will reveal his real name and birthplace next year. The Hyde publication will disclose details of the musician's past and personality for the first time.

Hyde will describe his childhood, development as an adult, and the story of L'arc-en-Ciel's formation in the publication. It will also include the vocalist's thoughts on topics ranging from women to life and death. The 192-page work will reveal exclusive details on Hyde's life in 26 sections. The writing project launched this past February and will include content compiled from more than 20 hours of interviews with the performer since November between tours.

The 42-year-old singer joined L'arc-en-Ciel in 1991 after leaving the Jerusalem's Rod band. L'arc-en-Ciel contributed to the soundtracks of Fullmetal Alchemist, Rurouni Kenshin, Mobile Suit Gundam 00, and several other anime projects. Hyde will perform in an eight-city world tour with L'arc-en-Ciel next year. The singer has released various solo work in addition to a dozen albums and 39 single CDs with the band. Hyde has also released two albums with Vamps, which he founded with guitarist K.A.Z in 2008.

Sony Magazines will release The Hyde on January 29 for the retail price of 3,500 yen (about US$45).
