The career of Acid Mothers Temple has been an interesting and varied one. With well over 200 releases to their name since 1996, the band have certainly put in the hard yards. Recent times have seen a resurgence in their underground cult popularity. Between Autumn 2014 and December 2015, core AMT members Tsuyama Atsushi (bassist/vocalist) and Shimura Koji (drums) left the band. Original members Makoto Kawabata and Hiroshi Higashi took this as their chance to create a new line-up and that this was a good chance to refresh the band with new members. The last Acid Mothers Temple album released by Riot Season was Reverse Of Rebirth In Universe in 2018 (REPOSE 073R-LP) which was incredibly well received. For that album the newly settled line up featuring new boys Wolf (bass), Satoshima Nani (drums), and Jyonson Tsu (vocals) re-recorded old AMT classics and a few new jams. The album and subsequent world tour were incredibly well received, not only by long time AMT diehards but also a whole new crowd who were discovering the band for the first time, either via the album of the show, which included the band's first appearance at Glastonbury Festival in summer 2019. Chosen Star Child's Confession is the latest studio album from the band which should be considered the genuine "first album" of this new line-up with the added presence of Geoff Leigh (ex Henry Cow). In the band's own words: "We had recording session with Geoff Leigh (ex Henry Cow) at the beautiful Sam and Rachel's recording studio in London in July 2018 (with work completed back in Japan in 2019). It was the first year of the new vocalist Jyonson. We recorded some our standards and classics also new jam session. We found many musical direction, daydream psychedelic, dubby jazz groove, Si-Fi trance, experimental exotic chaos, etc... it's the truly beginning of Acid Mothers Temple's new era!" CD version includes bonus track "Santa Maria Enfance".
