Short news update about Back-on and a bit about Back-on Online

There isn’t enough for each news ‘bite’ for me to be able to write entire news updates, so I’ve decided to collate them all into one mini-news update.

First on the list – Back-on have officially announced the news of their scheduled appearance at Anime Evolution on their official website. It seems that it will be a live and recorded performance at an outdoor venue, a great setting seeing as this will be in August!

In light of Back-on appearing at both Anime Matsuri and Anime Evolution, J!-ENT have released a spotlight article on the band, written by Dennis A. Amith. He talks about the band’s history (something we haven’t touched on yet at Back-on Online) as well as their recent releases. I would say though that Back-on’s musical style is more similar to Linkin Park than Limp Bizkit. You can read the article yourself by clicking on the link below:

The picture in the article features all of the band, including Icchan, the new drummer. It does look as though he’s been photoshopped in though for some reason hmm… I’d be interested in finding out what readers thought as well so feel free to drop a comment. ^^

So… finally on to the bit about Back-on Online, we now have a proper forum! Again, credit must got to Sowon (now the in-house Super-moderator) for suggesting the idea in the first place. Please do pay a visit and register to join the chat! It is the first forum dedicated to Back-on and I think it has a lot of potential to reach more people!
