Watch BACK-ON “Ice cream” PV preview on Youtube!

With props to our new forum member reghrhre for the find, you can now watch a 1:33 min preview clip of BACK-ON‘s brand new PV for “Ice cream on Youtube!   reghrhre spotted TEEDA’s RT of @kimonako‘s post about the new video and decided to share it with us on the Forums!

It is definitely one of the funniest music videos I have seen to date (and it was only the first 1:33 minutes!) and for those who haven’t had a chance to watch it yet, some of these quick screenshots might help you build up a picture:

Although we don’t know the ending yet, the video begins starts like this: it’s a slow start to the day, but then 2 lovely female customers enter the diner. This galvanises the BACK-ON band members into action, and they compete to see who will be the one to help out the ladies each time.

As you can see from the screenshots, the colours are very vivid and match the location of the video shoot: the 1950s California-style Diner “Googie’s Cafe” (Nagano 南長野店 branch).  Particular personal favourites at the moment are GORI’s “Oh my god” face, KENJI03’s prancing to-and-fro from the table and being distracted by one of the lady’s assets *cough wink* and TEEDA’s “neuuu….”

The video was uploaded by ggajjgas and its direct link can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DcLsv3JHz0

UPDATE! You can now watch a 480p quality version uploaded by avexnetwork here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IL_kdHUuPns

BACK-ON’s “Ice cream” promotional drive kicks off with revamped official HP and a new ‘behind-the-scenes’ video!

BACK-ON kicked off their promotional drive for Ice cream today with the launch of their revamped official website [Ice cream edition] which features a new logo, new promotional photo and a new design that incorporates all the links to their social media channels too!

BACK-ON.com - Ice Cream edition

I personally absolutely adore their new look: it’s clean, stylish and so easy to navigate. The band’s team have also redesigned the profile page – instead of individual profiles – there is now a quick summary of the band instead beneath the (new) group photo:

Screenshot from BACK-ON.com (Profile Page)

They also uploaded a brand new ‘behind-the-scenes’ video on their Youtube channel: it features the band and their team during their Ice cream photo shoot session last month (March 2012) and for those who prefer reading to listening, BACK-ON helpfully included subtitles!   You can tell they had a lot of fun (despite the temperature being a measly 4 degree Celsius) and it’s really worth watching the video (爆つべ vol.21) just to laugh along with them and see them interact!

The highlights would probably include:

  • A snapshot of GORI from about 10 years ago (before he was 18)
  • KENJI03 biting a baguette – with zest!
  • SHU laughing out loud and his oh so handsome new look (slicked back hair works for him!)
  • TEEDA doing a ‘mini’ strip tease
  • Lots of party-poppers and pizza and random scenes

You can watch the video by clicking on this link here:

Watch 爆つべ vol.21!

BACK-ON to release new single “Ice cream” on May 9th 2012!

Single cover for Ice creamBACK-ON has just announced that they will be releasing their new single Ice cream on May 9th 2012! It will feature two tracks:

  1. Ice cream
  2. Piece

The title track ‘Ice cream is said by Musicman-NET to be a party-rock tune, and the new single cover, which was posted by TEEDA on his latest blog post just earlier (so did the staff), has now made its way onto the band’s official discography page.

In addition, Musicman-NET also shared a brand new promotional photo of the band – shown below – featuring some seriously heavy eyeliner; even our lovely Shu has undergone a revamp with his new slicked-back hair!

The article talks about BACK-ON‘s recent work, including TEEDA‘s collaboration with Koda Kumi  (aka. Mrs Kenji03) on her 50th single  “Poppin’ love cocktail feat.TEEDA“, as well as KENJI03 and TEEDA‘s performance on a-Nation, says that this is one of most anticipated releases from the band, and that the band will be performing their new songs at their forthcoming tour in June!

p/s: It also mentions a forthcoming album release at  the end of May… so much to look forward to! :)

Watch the full version of BACK-ON’s “with you feat.Me” PV on Youtube!

I’m sure many of you watched the teaser (Short ver.) PV that BACK-ON released a few days ago, but they have finally uploaded the full version of with you feat.Me on Youtube as well! w/thanks to Shadow for the link again:

BACK-ON - with you feat.Me screenshot

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yq973zVrTXI

You can see a screenshot of KENJI03‘s adjusting the amplifier above (about halfway through the video) and of course, what this PV means is that you can listen to with you feat.Me in full for the first time if you haven’t heard it already from other sources!

If you’re wondering what happens after the teaser : misono sings the first half of the second verse, but then TEEDA rocks the song with some trademark rapping – which he does (awesomely) again during the bridge  (2:25) – and we get to see some lovely cinematography (with a hint of TEEDA smiling and a scene of GORI lighting a cigarette – although the ciggy isn’t there any more when the song resumes after the musical interlude). As a fan of Shu, I am personally ecstatic that he is wearing a shirt and tie! <3

And first impressions of the single: some will prefer the B-side Nagareboshi (Shooting Star) – which is a lovely mellow rock song – to the title track (for various reaons), and with you [Tales of] remix is definitely more varied in style than flyaway [Tales of ] Remix and features the voice of Hirano Aya, but all I can I say is that you will need to listen to all these songs on decent speakers to do them justice!

Hope you enjoy watching the PV! :)

Watch the ‘Sands of Time’ PV in full on Youtube!

If you’ve been camping out on the BOO Forums for the past few days, you’ll definitely have heard of the breaking news (from Sesshy as well :D) of the release of a clip of the Sands of Time pv on Back-on‘s Myspace!

It featured 0:58 minutes of Back-on goodness (splashing water, an hour-glass and slow-motion have never seemed so magical!) but ended so abruptly that the rabid dedicated fans were left wanting more. Our prayers were clearly heard by someone, and who else but the one-and-only gangangan03!

He has uploaded the full Sands of Time PV on to Youtube (thank you!!) and you can watch all 3:21 minutes of it at the link below! (or below the ‘cut’)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYhkmXIRx7o

UPDATE 05/01/09 – We have just updated the link to the fansubbed HQ version of the PV as sadly gangangan03‘s video is no longer available. The new video is courtesy of Vanalovas and is subbed by Order of Zeronos.

If you fancy just looking at the screenshots instead, we’ve taken just over 100 stills from the mp4 version of the file. They are now all hosted on our brand new Flickr account! We’ve included some of the pictures below for your convenience, but it’s best to experience the entire ‘PV’ by viewing them all in one go (at the size ‘small’ for optimal quality)

Sands of Time - PV - 11 Sands of Time - PV - 17 Sands of Time - PV - 31 Sands of Time - PV - 39 Sands of Time - PV - 27 Sands of Time - PV - 44 Sands of Time - PV - 22 Sands of Time - PV - 14

What do you think of the PV? I personally think it’s one of the best the band have done so far, and it’s very arty in some parts! :) I do love everyone’s outfits (although I wish Icchan had a more ‘complete’ look!) and can’t wait to see some official photos!

UPDATE: With thanks to gangangan03, it turns out that the director of this spectacular PV is none other than Hideaki Sunaga, who also directed the PV for Chain, and has worked with artists such as Dragon Ash, Ayumi Hamasaki and Koda Kumi!

Only 10 more days until the big day of the single release! ^^

Videos of Back-on performing live at clubasia and GAME in Shibuya, Japan!

Although we haven’t heard much about Back-on‘s musical activity until these two days (we’re in the middle of drafting the news post about their new song ‘Sands of Time‘ which features as the ending theme for the upcoming 51-episode Jdrama ケータイ捜査官7 [Keitai Sousakan 7, Cellphone Investigation 7] !) they have been extremely busy (as usual) performing gigs in Japan!

Usually this sort of news would, for obvious reasons, pass right by international fans (like myself) and be filed away as ‘general news’, but with a huge thanks to mau37 and also acq128 (in particular, who has kindly given us permission to post his video and sent us some photos that will be uploaded to the Gallery!) we’ve now been offered a unique audio-visual glimpse into their live Japanese gig performances via Youtube!

Back-on donates autographed items for Gyao.jp’s charity auction!

This news has come a little late, but I assure you it is very interesting, as a few weeks ago, Back-on donated items towards Gyao.jp’s Charity Auction! It seems Gyao holds these charity auctions once every 2 weeks, and Back-on‘s items were (lot) number #44 for Gyao‘s 22nd round of auctions!

Gyao Auction Ad for Back-on!

The auction was held in association with Bidders.jp, which I understand to be a Japanese auction company, and featured one of Back-on‘s latest special t-shirts (previously modelled Icchan) autographed by all the band members, in addition to a signed copy of the single BLAZE LINE/a day dreaming… The band also donated issues #1~21 of all(?) the Eyeshield 21 manga, so I’m sure you’d agree that it was definitely a particularly generous donation! (given that some celebrities just donate e.g. lip gloss)

You can visit the (now closed) auction directly by clicking on the picture above, but for those wanting the low down, 33 different price bids were made for the items above, with a mini-bidding war between two users 19920628 and kameya_online towards the end, and the final price was ¥ 8000, which is about $70 USD or GBP £ 35!

So congratulations to 19920628 (I have no idea who this is either) for winning the auction and picking up the prize booty! :D We’ve included some more pictures of the auction items below, so do have a look if you’re free!

Photo Extravaganza – BACK-ON Live at Formoz Festival 2007, Taipei, Taiwan! – Part 1

Recently we posted news about two fantastic video clips (courtesy of gangangan03) featuring Back-on performing Believer and Chain at Formoz Festival 2007, but now we’re bringing you equally exciting visual media in the form of some really professional photographs taken at the concert! :)

In Part 1, we’re featuring photos taken by KHT and Hyperreality Mer (latter 2) , who have both very kindly given us permission to post them here on BOO news and our gallery! Thank you! You can see all of their work below as thumbnails, where each photo is linked to its original size in the gallery. And as Teeda might say – check them out! :)

Back-on, taken by KHT Teeda, taken by Hyperreality Mer Shu, taken by Hyperreality Mer

I would strongly encourage EVERYONE to view them in their original sizes, because these thumbnails seriously don’t justify the quality of the photos! If you do need a little persuading, take a closer look at Hyperreality Mer‘s photo of Shu below!

Finally, you may also have seen that this is only Part 1 of the photo extravaganza, so please stay tuned for further updates!


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!

If you want to see how the t-shirt fares under colourful spotlights, Back-on.com also provides a photo of Shu with the new-t-shirt as well~
