New release – “BLAZE LINE/A day dreaming…”

The news about Back-on‘s latest release also arrived on March 26th 2007! Their new single “BLAZE LINE/a day dreaming…” – due out on June 6th 2007 – will be a 3 song compilation featuring BLAZE LINE, and A day dreaming retailing at ¥1000 ( CTCR-4025).

Both songs will be used for the new season of Eyeshield 21, an anime series currently on its 100th episode. BLAZE LINE will feature as the opening theme from May 2nd 2007, and A day dreaming as the ending theme from the earlier date of April 11th 2007 or Episode 101.

The announcement was also made in the latest issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, Issue 17 (March 26th 2007) which features Eyeshield 21 as one of its long-running manga series, along with the likes of Naruto and Gintama.

Kenji03 said in his blog (if I’ve intepreted it correctly) that the songs were to give people dreams and hope… which I personally think is also an apt description for New World, Chain and Hikari Sasuhou – these are all my favourites so I’m really looking forward to the new release!

p/s: Back-on‘s web-team have uploaded two better quality clips of Chain and New World on their Back-on (Japan) profile. Take a look! :)
