Watch BACK-ON – “wimp ft. Lil’ Fang (from FAKY)” music video in full!

Today marks the beginning of the 7-day countdown to the forthcoming release of wimp ft. Lil’ Fang (from FAKY) [single] on March 12th 2014.  In the build up, BACK-ON released a teaser music video in February, giving fans their first opportunity to listen to the full version of the Gundam Build Fighters OP, featuring clips of band and Lil’ Fang filming the full MV.

You can now watch the full music video below or by clicking on the following link:

In a marked departure from their previous releases, this is one of the first times in recent years that BACK-ON has made the full music video available online (they were often included as ‘special’ extras on DVD versions of their album/single releases – Icecream and ニブンノイチ (Nibun no Ichi) are both examples)  and has been completely filmed in the studio without exterior scenes.

I really like the new approach and its really great to be able to watch the band perform with Lil’ Fang without ‘moody’ shots or fancy CGI distractions (aside from the colour-shape loops at the start)

It has amassed just under 20,000 views in two days and the single hit #1 in the daily charts (Sony’s online digital music store) today with the title track wimp ft. Lil’ Fang (from FAKY) charting at #2 on both Mora and iTunes Japan’s Rock Charts; this news was also posted on BACK-ON‘s official website, testament to how important it is to them.

You can now listen to 35-second preview clips of the new tracks from the single on the official BACK-ON Discography page, including Traumatic and Around the world. Both sound incredibly upbeat and you can hear hints of the band’s previous tracks as well (see for a preview of different sections of both songs)

The official site seems to indicate that Around the world is not expected to feature on the CD+gunpla CD-only version of the single. We have also updated our own Discography page to reflect this.

I can hardly wait for the release of wimp ft. Lil’ Fang (from FAKY) in a week’s time, especially as we get 3 new songs on one CD. Are you excited as well?  Do let us know in the comments below! :D
