ASCA’s new single RESISTER will be released on CD on February 27, but it can now be purchased digitally.
The song is being used as the newest opening theme for the ongoing anime series Sword Art Online: Alicization. The song is described as having aggressive and fast-paced guitar and strings backed by the singer’s strong vocals. Check out the newly released music video below.
“I was given the opportunity to sing the new opening theme for Sword Art Online: Alicization. I feel truly privileged to be in charge of a song for a series I love so much and always watch. ‘RESISTER’ is a song about having pride and a strong resolution to change one’s fate and to look forward even in the face of adversity. I hope it becomes a song to support those who listen to it, to give them the courage to take a step forward.”
It has also been announced that ASCA’s new song Mirage will be used as the ending theme for the the upcoming VR mystery visual novel game Tokyo Chronos which received over US$150,000 in crowdfunding on Kickstarter. The song will be released on February 27, the same day as RESISTER.
