TOKYO PERFORMANCE DOLL
Inheriting the original TPD’s DNAs,
their goal is to become a peerless and unique performance group.
Dolls are now jumping from Tokyo to Japan,
and to the WORLD to create a new movement to the girls’ group scene!!
Tokyo Performance Doll, known as TPD, has been taking a break from their music career since their live in 1996. They were known to have a strong personality not only as a girls group but also within the music industry. With its unique musicality and overwhelming performance, TPD continued to make new challenges. This legendary group has produced many talents such as actress Ryoko Shinohara, Yuri Ichii from EAST END×YURI and Yuko Anai.
After seventeen years, TPD reunited on June 2013 with new members selected from 8,800 candidates within Japan. Inheriting the original TPD’s DNAs, their goal is to become a peerless and unique performance group. Their first challenge was the year running show, PLAY×LIVE『1×0 (one by zero) 』at “CBGK SHIBUGEKI!!” theater in Shibuya, which was an integration of projection mapping, play, and live performance.
“BRAND NEW STORY”, debut CD in June 2014, was the theme song for TV animation “Kindaichi Case Files R”, placed #8 on domestic chart, followed with first live tour in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya. Their non-stop 90min performance without MC was, and still the talk among girls’ group lovers.
Their consecutive CD release and appearance on live battles attracted many audiences stage by stage.
The latest CD, “逆光×礼賛（Backlight × Praise）” which released in March, written by Daisuke Asakura( ex-access) placed #2 on domestic chart. It is the highest rank and sales they ever reached within four titles.
This summer, TPD is going on live tour as well as various summer gigs that will be held in Japan.
5th CD is tentatively planned to release in August as well.
