Today marks the beginning of the 7-day countdown to the forthcoming release of wimp ft. Lil’ Fang (from FAKY) [single] on March 12th 2014. In the build up, BACK-ON released a teaser music video in February, giving fans their first opportunity to listen to the full version of the Gundam Build Fighters OP, featuring clips of band and Lil’ Fang filming the full MV.
You can now watch the full music video below or by clicking on the following link:
In a marked departure from their previous releases, this is one of the first times in recent years that BACK-ON has made the full music video available online (they were often included as ‘special’ extras on DVD versions of their album/single releases – Icecream and ニブンノイチ (Nibun no Ichi) are both examples) and has been completely filmed in the studio without exterior scenes.
I really like the new approach and its really great to be able to watch the band perform with Lil’ Fang without ‘moody’ shots or fancy CGI distractions (aside from the colour-shape loops at the start)read on
As we count down to the release of “wimp ft. Lil’ Fang (from FAKY)” on March 12th 2014, we have just seen exciting news from BACK-ON’S official Facebook that they will be performing at Anime Friends, an annual anime convention, in Sao Paolo, Brazil in July 2014!
The official news post on BACK-ON.com does not have much more information beyond a date: July 26th 2014.
This announcement has already been picked up by a Brazilian anime site: AnimePro as well.
It’s certainly a major milestone: this is the first time that BACK-ON will be performing in the southern hemisphere (from memory) and in Brazil of all places at such a well-known convention (estimated attendance in 2008 was 120,000, source: AnimeCons.com) – it will be a fantastic opportunity for the band to increase their exposure in a BRIC economy!
I am super excited and really hope we will hear from some Brazilian BACK-ON fans soon! :)read on
