Japanese rock band RADWIMPS is set to drop a new album in December. The still-untitled set will be the band’s first studio album in two years, following Ningen Kaika and the hit soundtrack to the 2016 animated blockbuster film Your Name.

The limited first edition will come with a DVD documenting the band’s musical journey from 2016 to the present, centering around interviews of the members with plenty of re-edited footage from the past.

The rockers will also release a live DVD/Blu-ray of their Yokohama Arena concert from their Road to Catharsis Tour 2018. The visual release will feature 19 tracks, including "Sparkle" and their latest single, "Catharsist."

Both the new album and live DVD/Blu-ray will be released Dec. 12.
