BACK-ON launches their official Youtube channel!

BACK-ON dropped us fans a brilliant surprise yesterday via their Twitter (also in English and mentioned by @TEEDA_BACKON, @GORI_BACKON) with the announcement that they have launched their official Youtube channel!

The latest video uploads feature TEEDA and KENJI03 giving us a quick commentary of Hello World in Japanese, English (TEEDA) and Mandarin Chinese (KENJI03)! I have to say that they are all brilliant! I don’t want to spoil his message, as it’s better to hear the man out himself, but this is what TEEDA said – and I quote:

Hello World, this is TEEDA and KENJI03 and you’re watching BACK-ON channel!
On February 16th we’re going to release the new album “Hello World”! It’s going to be the best J-Rock sound you’ve ever heard – no doubt! The first and second track  ‘”Beginning” and “ROCKSTAR ANTHEM” is crazy because I rap so sexxxy, you know what I’m saying?  And this year we’re going to go more worldwide, so hope to see you at your country. Anywayz, please check out our homepage, blog, Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, blah blah blah for more information. Thanks… See ya!

Once you’ve heard him say that, I swear you’ll <3 him forever! (I know I do… and so does Sesshy!)

KENJI03‘s spoken Chinese has improved leaps and bounds, so for any BACK-ON fans that understand Mandarin, this video is a real treat ~~ He says:

你好,我們是BACK-ON! 我是主唱KENJI還有TEEDA! 在2月16號,我們BACK-ON要發行我們的第二張的全新專輯: Hello World! 請台灣大家一定要聽喔! OK?! 然後-在台灣只要上日本Amazon網站就可以聽到我們的新專輯 Hello World. 請多多指教!

which roughly translates as:

Hello, we are BACK-ON! I am the lead vocalist KENJI03 and this is TEEDA! We will be releasing our 2nd brand new album: “Hello World” on February 16th and hope everyone in Taiwan will listen to it! OK?!
If you’re in Taiwan, you can visit Amazon Japan and listen to our new album “Hello World”. Please look after us!

In addition to these 3 videos, BACK-ON have uploaded 5 other videos, which we’ll try and post about separately, including:

BACK-ON confirms release of second full-length album (and DVD) “Hello World” on 16th February 2011!

It’s official! BACK-ON announced the full details of their second full-length album Hello World today on their official website, which included images of both cover designs of the two different editions!

The DVD version is on the left (with members of the band) and the CD version is on the right:

BACK-ON Hello World (DVD) CD Cover BACK-ON Hello World (CD) CD Cover

The album will feature 12 songs in total, of which 7 (yes, 7!) are brand new! What this means is that we have never seen them on any other BACK-ON single, album or compilation releases to date, and the tracklisting is below:

  1. Beginning
  2. ROCKSTAR ANTHEM
  3. with you feat.Me
  4. Apologize
  5. twenty four / 7
  6. TELL ME
  7. flyaway
  8. HERO
  9. Tomorrow never knows -album ver.-
  10. We are…
  11. ONE STEP! feat.mini
  12. hare days

I love the names of the new songs so far, and according to TEEDA’S blog entry (which mentions that he really likes the first two tracks called “Beginning” and “ROCKSTAR ANTHEM”) the album is BACK-ON way of saying a huge ‘hello’ to the world!

The band DO want to do a world tour, which they are kick-starting in Japan, as they have already released dates for their “Hello World” tour around Japan and there may already be plans for America!

The CD version will retail at ¥ 2,500, but the DVD version will cost ¥ 3,200. For the extra ¥ 700, the album will come with a special DVD with lots of videos:

  • with you feat.Me
  • TELL ME
  • ONE STEP! feat.mini
  • flyaway
  • Sands of Time
  • flower
  • BLAZE LINE
  • a day dreaming…
  • BAReeeeeeeeeeN/足跡
  • Anime Matsuri 2010 in TEXAS Documentary

Are you excited? I know I am! It’s hard to believe this is only their second ever full-length album (as we know, BACK-ON do love releasing singles) but the real bonus for fans imho is that we get 7 new and unique songs on this one massive compilation, not to mention the lure of the DVD of high quality videos (name dropping Sesshy here).

For international fans, you can already pre-order the DVD (and/or CD) version on online retail websites such as those listed below and we have also listed the prices for the DVD version for your reference (correct at time of this post) excluding shipping:

Let us know what you think! We are having a super fun and active discussion on our Fan Forums as well, so join us here: http://www.backon-online.com/forums/showthread.php?tid=853




Watch BACK-ON’s “TELL ME” PV online!

Happy New Year for 2011!

Hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year break. In case you hadn’t already caught the news on the redesigned BACK-ON.com (screenshot below) or even on their official Twitter, you can now watch the official PV for TELL ME on Youtube!

BACK-ON.COM - TELL ME

Click here to watch it (and add it to your Favourites of course) or click on ‘Read more’ below to view it on BOO.

Do I like the song? The answer is: I *absolutely* love it! It reminds me of the time I first heard Chain, as it is so memorable, even though the style of music is slightly different. One of the main highlights has to be TEEDA‘s rapping over the heavy guitar riffs(?) between 0:37 – 0:47 but if you’re after some great verses, a super catchy chorus and bridge, then I reckon you’ll definitely like TELL ME, as KENJI03‘s vocals are just so good.

As for the PV: fans who attended BACK-ON‘s Anime Matsuri concert in 2010 will be in for a treat, as the band decided to go down the BLAZE LINE route and feature clips from their trip to the USA; and from what I recall on the Forums (posts by IchiI think!), they actually performed this song during the concert, so if you catch yourself in the PV, please do let us know~ :)

So without further ado (and don’t forget to tell us if you like it) the PV:

About this entry



Icchan models the new Back-on T-shirts and new live dates announced!

During the past few months, Back-on have tended to update their website once-or-twice a week with news updates, but in this month alone, they’ve made a record 9 news posts in the first two weeks!

Our main focus is on the T-shirts (Merchandise) that were announced at the end of last month, because the latest news post features Icchan and the T-shirts! Yup, he models all 4 colours of the latest design, and looks so sweet when he smiles. :) Take a look below, especially at the pink t-shirt, as the website says it is particularly recommended by Icchan!

About this entry



Gori and the Hamburgers, plus ‘Fabio’?

Gori rarely ever updates his blog so when he does post something, a Back-on fan must always take a look! :) This applies also to other members of Back-on that maintain a public blog, such as Teeda and Kenji03!

It’s already been mentioned before that Back-on were particularly keen on hamburgers and Gori in particular seems to adore them! He writes:

I recall that on day one, I ate a hamburger the size of my hand in a bar!

On day two, for lunch, I ate a hamburger from the hotel.

On day three, I ate a hamburger from a takeout(?)/or outside.

On day four…

Gori stops at this point… where he says the memory of eating burgers everyday keeps popping up! :D

Gori's Anime Matsuri Picture

 

He obviously enjoyed being in America, and has posted a group picture which you can see above! Like Teeda and Kenji03, Gori thanks the people in America for being so good to them. He is also very much looking forward to Canada, so to all the Canadians – please do make an effort to support them at Anime Evolution if you’re around the area!

On another note, active forum users will most likely already know this video, but during Anime Matsuri 2007, one very lucky person by the name of Fabio was ‘serenaded’ by Back-on! The video has been uploaded by buehrer on Youtube, and Fabio has kindly allowed us to post it here:


We get to see Kenji03 strumming on his guitar singing Fabio, fabio, fabio… with the rest of Back-on joining in at the end of each sentence with Fabio! At the end, Gori says the sweetest thing.. I love you!
