Eh I swear we already have a RADWIMPS thread over here somewhere...

I did check through both this subforum and the Other Artists subforum before I made this, as well as the Artists Thread directory, and I didn't find one.  If there is, it's somehow managed to escape my eyes.  xD

Thank you so much for making this thread! Yes indeed, it's been a while, but then RADWIMPS have never been a hurried bunch : P.

If they follow the same pattern they did with Altocolony no Teirii > Zettai Zetsumei, we're getting a single/some singles this summer, some/one early next year and then the album.

Anyway, first the song! Can't wait to hear it ^^

Not a problem!  It's something I've been meaning to do for a while.  Though I do wish the spoiler tags would behave and work properly.  -_-

I'm really interested to see what the new single will sound like; it's also of note that the third track is an instrumental, which is curious.  And aye, based on the patterns for their previous two albums, that appears to be the track that they're going to follow again, though I suppose that we'll see.

I agree, DADA was absolutely epic. Altocolony no Teirii had the equally/more epic Oshakashama... If we can get another song to add to that list this time around I'll be satisfied already!

Finally had a chance to hear the new song! After quite a few listens, I have to say that I really like it, particularly in terms of the vocals.

Great, a new single! I hope they release an album this year, it's been over two years since Zettai Zetsumei : D

Also, has anyone heard the vocalist's solo album, UBU, under the name illion? I absolutely ADORE it... one of the best releases I've heard come from Japan in a while. No clichéd titles, phrases or lyrics, no clichéd melodies or basically, any of the J-Pop clichés you here in so much mainstream Japanese music....

^ I intend to listen to UBU as soon as I can, since based on the two promotional tracks, I liked what Noda was doing with it. And yeah, it would be REALLY nice to have an album from RADWIMPS later in the year, since I could use some more of their sound.


Though, query:  Where did you happen to find UBU (or did you buy it)?
