BAND-MAIKO is a sub-unit of BAND-MAID that first appeared as an April Fool's Day prank on April 1, 2018. The prank had a good reception from the fans, and as a result they returned on April 1, 2019, releasing their first mini album.[1]

The concept behind it is summed up as "Maiko x Hard Rock." For their songs, they brought out traditional Japanese instruments to create a festive and elegant Kyoto-inspired sense of style. The members wear maiko (apprentice geisha) outfits, and their lyrics are based on the Kyoto dialect.[1]
