Watch BACK-ON’s “flyaway” PV in full online!

This is the video that we have all been waiting for since news of the flyaway PV was first announced by Sesshy at Sound EX, and we’ve been able to share it here with everyone thanks to Sok who found the video of the PV on Veoh!

The PV, which was uploaded by raykennedy, is 3:56 minutes in length and features BACK-ON performing on a sunny beach and in a dark industrial warehouse with various background images of urban buildings panning in and out. Very interesting camera work imho and it is definitely a must watch for the song AND the video! The director is none other than 須永秀明 (Hideaki Sunaga) who also directed BACK-ON‘s Sands of time PV!

You can watch the PV by clicking on the direct link below or after the cut (as usual):

Music page updated with new downloads and a new poll

I’ll admit, it’s been a LONG LONG time since we updated the Music section of BOO, but better late than never, ne? Our last update was in September 2007, when New World and Hikari Sasuhou were voted the most wanted downloads, and up till now, each song has been downloaded over 1100 times, a new record for the Music page and definitely not just because of the delay in updating this page!

This time, a day dreaming… and Kodou were the top favourites of our voters, and as usual, we have also put up two extra downloads for just one week only, including the much-requested Hikari Sasuhou (Survive ver.) as well as the runner up from the previous polls, forward.

Thanks to everyone who voted in the latest polls, and if possible, it would be great if you could vote again in the next one, where:

  • Butterfly (Butterfly single)
  • DRIVE (New World album)
  • Believer (Chain single)
  • Grab (Survive compliation album)
  • Gaku-Ten (Baby Rock album)
  • RAIN (New World album)

are all up for selection. It might be a bit more difficult to choose this time! :)

More updates will be forthcoming throughout the site, as well as more content from various contributors! And before I forget, we have updated the affiliate link with Sound EX from their Myspace to their official new website! The people behind the website are Nao and Sesshy, and I would encourage everyone to pay a visit, particularly as the graphics used for the site design really are fantastic! I’ve included a screenshot of the new site design below as a taster, but look out for the flash movie on the splash page – it’s worth the wait – and this is coming from someone who doesn’t usually take a second glance at splash pages.

Download the flower and Butterfly previews on Myspace as mp3s!

This probably qualifies as Yet Another Media News Post (YAMNP), but now that we’re just under a month away from the release of both flower and Butterfly, the wait has almost become unbearable (for me at least) without listening to the previews of either track at least once a day! >_<

So if you are experiencing the same kind of symptoms, and haven’t already recorded both previews (available from Back-on’s Myspace), fear not, because you can now download both clips from BOO as mp3s! They are a little quiet, so you might need to turn up the volume a little on your iPod equivalent, but hopefully they will be of some help whilst we all endure the wait!

Murder Princess OVA OST – Hikari Sasuhou (FK Metal ver.) TV-Size mp3!

Ever since we posted about the official release of the Murder Princess OVA OST, we’ve been checking on Nipponsei on a daily basis to see if we could find the official TV-size version of Hikari Sasuhou (FK Metal ver.) which was used as the OP of the straight-to-video anime, and it is definitely one of the most popular songs by Back-on!

I’m happy to say that the soundtrack is now available on Nipponsei, but not before Yakhobian of CrystalNova kindly emailed us with his copy of the song, so a big thanks to Yakhobian for sharing the file! You may recall that this is the same Yakhobian-san who originally provided us all with the original recording of Hikari Sasuhou (FK Metal ver)!

You can find the download below, and if you’re interested in singing along to the lyrics or finding out what they mean, take a look at the Lyrics, which have also been kindly provided by Yakhobian too! :)

Music page updated with new featured downloads (Series 5) and radio playlist!

Those who have already subscribed to the mailing list will already have received an email notifying them of the update to the Music page! Thanks to everyone who has been waiting patiently for the past month, I do appreciate your supportive comments! :D

In this particular update, the featured radio playlist is BLAZE LINE/a day dreaming…, Back-on‘s latest single release. This means you can listen to the two title tracks, their TV-size versions as well as EYES!

With regards to the featured downloads, nearly 45% of the 270 voters wanted BLAZE LINE (Eyeshield 21 OP), whilst 30% voted for the all-time favourite, Chain (Air Gear OP!) We’ve also had a special request for Hikari Sasuhou (Survive ver.) and Drive, so to show our appreciation to the kind supporters of Back-on Online, both these songs are now available for download for one week!

Please do continue to vote for your favourite songs, but please remember, if you LIKE the songs, try and support Back-on by buying their CDs/attending their concerts!

Even if you can’t do so at the moment, seriously don’t worry, you can also help the band by spreading the word about their music! So please try and name-drop Back-on to your friends, family and the internet! :D

Thank you all for your patience! :D Sorry about the slight delay (due to revision/exams) – I promised in the previous post, which introduced the Survive compilation, that Back-on Online would provide Hikari Sasuhou (Survive ver.) and Grab for download. A big thanks to those who made an effort to show their support by posting comments on the Music page!

Download the OP version of BLAZE LINE from Eyeshield 21 Episode 104

This time, we have to thank [l33t-raws] for providing the raw version of Eyeshield 21, Episode 104 so that Back-on Online could provide the TV Size version of BLAZE LINE. I have already briefly mentioned my initial impressions of the song, but in the meantime… what do you think?

BLAZE LINE OP version (2.31 MB, Zipped)

Eyeshield 21 OP - BACK-ON - BLAZE LINE (3025 downloads)

With regards to the accompanying opening credits video uploaded by Back-on Online, unfortunately despite the original file being fairly high quality,with a recommended 4:3 ratio, the way Youtube has compressed the file has had a devastating effect on its quality, so apologies. We will continue to experiment with the output for a better quality picture!

Site update: Music now features Baby Rock for May 2007!

It’s been a month (by one day) since the last update, but I have finally got round to updating the Music page! This time, the feature Back-on album is their third release – Baby Rock. You can now listen to all of the songs (see the tracklisting below) on the radio. Please do let me know what you think – the album is a very different style of music to New World and Chain. ^^
Baby Rock

  1. Gaku-Ten
  2. Blow
  3. Flydom
  4. Forward
  5. ~feel~
  6. Nuts Tribe
  7. Lucky?
  8. So Many Tears

As with every update to the Music page, there is also a change in the featured download. A big thanks to those who voted for in the poll! 124 people participated in the vote and New World was the overwhelming favourite (81) to be featured this time. I’ve also decided to include the runner up Flydom (22) as the extra featured download so hope you all like it! There is a new poll up for the next update so please take a little time to vote. :D

If you’re interested in finding out about download statistics from last month:

  • Hikari Sasuhou was downloaded 494 times.
  • Chain was downloaded 210 times.

As so many people voted for New World, I am fairly confident that the download numbers will exceed this. If you would like to tell someone where they can find these songs, please link directly to the Music page at http://www.backon-online.com/multimedia/music/. I’ve found that a few direct-file-linkers have popped up and will definitely be changing the file location on a frequent basis as it is a form of leeching.

Hope you enjoy listening to Baby Rock! Remember, if you like the album, support Back-on by buying the CD! Play-asia are doing an excellent deal for Back-on albums at the moment, and I would recommend purchasing from them. :)
