BACK-ON’s new single “ニブンノイチ / INFINITY” due out on November 6th 2013!

Both BACK-ON and the official Gundam Build Fighters website made the announcement this week that the band’s latest tie-in single ニブンノイチ/INFINITY (Nibun no Ichi / INFINITY) will be out on November 6th 2013!

I personally love the promo shot for the new single (click on the image for a larger version of the image) and cannot wait to hear the two tracks in full (listen to preview clips at the end of this post!):

As we speculated some weeks back, the tracklisting for the single – which features two ‘A-side‘ tracks –  is as follows:

  1. ニブンノイチ
  2. INFINITY
  3. ニブンノイチ~instrumental~
  4. INFINITY~instrumental~

BACK-ON first performed both tracks live at Anime USA 2013 so aside from those present at the concert, very few others have heard them in full (a short clip of INFINITY is available on Youtube).  INFINITY is a rock song and according to OhayoSeoulthe song was inspired by ‘how cool Gundams look when flying around’.  Erika (elenko94), the author of the article, also describes the theme of ニブンノイチ rather succinctly as “what one person can’t achieve by yourself, two can”.

And in case you are not sure which is which: ニブンノイチ is the OP for the new Gundam Build Fighters anime and INFINITY is the main theme song for the PS Vita game Gundam Breakers.

There will be 3 versions of the single:

  • CD Single only (¥1,050)
  • CD Single +DVD (¥1,890) which includes a ニブンノイチ music video clip
  • CD Single + HG 1/144-scale Freedom Gundam Particle Clear ver.  model [Limited Edition]  (¥2,625)

A special in-game code will be included as well for the Freedom Gundam, a ‘gunpla’  or Gundam model which comes from GUNDAM SEED (original source Gundam.info).

Two photos of the gunpla can be found below courtesy of Amazon.co.jp:

The anime will start airing on October 7th 2013, although a special preview showing (ballot-draw) will be held at Zeep DiverCity on October 4th 2013. BACK-ON will be performing live at the venue alongside AiRI, who sings the anime ED “Imagination > Reality”.

All versions of the single are now starting to be available for pre-ordering at various online outlets (please contact us if you have one to recommend)  and the band’s name has been mentioned on websites including GUNDAM GUY and Culture Japan.

This single is the first release by BACK-ON since May 2012 – I can hardly wait!  We will continue to post updates as more information becomes available, but feel free to join our discussion on the BOO Forums via this dedicated thread as well: http://www.backon-online.com/forums/showthread.php?tid=1033&pid=30111#pid30111
