DRIVE lyrics released and Colors vs. Colours

Since its release a few days ago, the Hikari Sasuhou ヒカリサスホウ lyrics has become extremely popular, evident in the number of click-throughs *as well* as the number of downloads suddenly shooting up to 208 in this short space of time. Chain has also been a hotly demanded download, with 101 click-throughs.

The next lyrics release (which I finally finished typing up and checking yesterday) is DRIVE, which is another track found in the New World album. Its a very different style to the more well-known Hikari Sasuhou, New World and Chain. Its very chilled out – think road trip – and contains such great words such as accell (or accelerator) and clutch, which is perfect for its title. Hopefully I’ll be able to get hold (or attempt a) of a translation of this song soon as I think this song has a great message, even if I haven’t fully grasped it yet.

Finally, with regards to the debate of Colors vs Colours. In case you weren’t aware of the news, this new release by Back-on features as the new theme for the TV Tokyo show Tokyo Mayokara. We haven’t had a chance to listen to the new song yet, but it seems it should be spelt Colors despite the blog referring to the song as Colours. This means any previous articles will have this small typo which I hope no one minds too much!

p/s: Thank you for continuing to support Back-on Online – there are only 19 more days till Back-on‘s performance at Anime Matsuri. You can find a more detailed info about their schedule here.  Also, if you noticed a little downtime earlier – this was because our database needed a little repair work but once this was completed the website was back online within the hour.

About this entry

“Colours” will not be the third track in the BLAZE LINE/A day dreaming… single

There was some speculation (on my part) that Colours – the new theme song for the TV show Tokyo Mayokara! (Tokyoマヨカラ!) might feature as the third song in the forthcoming single release, BLAZE LINE/A day dreaming…, due out on June 6th 2007. However, Back-on have announced on their blog that the song won’t be part of that single.


I haven’t heard the song yet, but I’m a little sad to find that its not included for June 6th 2007… which makes one wonder if it will be the full length Hikari Sasuhou ヒカリサスホウ (FK Metal ver.)? What do you all think?

On another note, I obviously mis-read the news before… but on second viewing it seems much clearer now: Back-on‘s very own Icchan will be presenting a special event on May 10th 2007 focusing on on their (forthcoming) trip to America, entitled “アメリカ帰国ライブ” or literally “America returning home Live“. The event will be held at Shibuya Ruido K2 who haven’t yet updated their listings for May so hopefully we’ll find out more information closer to the time!

Tokyo TV’s Mayokara new opening theme, Back-on’s “Colours” and a new Back-on only gig at Shibuya O-Crest!

The news source this time is from the official Back-on website, so unless I’ve completely interpreted it incorrectly it seems that we have found out the name of one of their new songs, potentially even the third song on the forthcoming “BLAZE LINE/A day dreaming…” single release!

We mentioned before that Back-on‘s song 鼓動 (Kodou) featured as the main theme for TV Tokyo’s Mayokara (マヨカラ). Now, according to Back-on‘s website, the programme has chosen another Back-on song for their new theme tune, “Colours” which Back-on describes as a fast song with a “hot message“.

It is due to be aired with the episode on Thursday, April 5th 2007 at 2:00am. You can read more about the forthcoming episode on the Tokyo Mayokara website. Unfortunately I can’t find any clips of the show online at the moment but the website is worth visiting as it seems like a fun programme. ^^

Back-on has also updated their schedule of live events to include a Back-on only appearance at Shibuya O-Crest (which apparently fits 200 people) on July 4th 2007. It seems this performance is in celebration of Back-on returning from America!

Tickets will officially be on-sale from the ticket office from May 19th, but Back-on will be selling tickets at almost all of their forthcoming live performances starting from April 18th. These advanced tickets will retail at ¥2,500, which is more than the usual ¥1,800 – ¥2,000. As Back-on usually performs with 2-3 other bands at gigs, this is a step forward!

I should also add that their website states that their April 18th 2007 gig at 柏ZaX for 「ZaX 3MAN LIVE!!」 will apparently be recorded and Back-on will be performing lots of songs as its their main show before their trip to Anime Matsuri! The Events page will be updated with more details information soon. :)

p/s: I would add links to the official venue websites for e.g. Shibuya but for some reason they are IE (Internet Explorer) only.
