  • BURNOUT SYNDROMES Haikyu!! Opening Theme ‘PHOENIX’ Music Video to Premiere On YouTube

    31.January.2020 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

    Three-piece Japanese rock band BURNOUT SYNDROMES have announced that the music video for their new single PHOENIX will premiere on YouTube on Friday January 31 at midnight (JST).

    The incredibly popular song serves as the opening theme for the ongoing TV anime series Haikyu!! TO THE TOP and blew up on Japanese social media when it was released digitally on Friday last week.

     

    The music video was directed by Takahashi Chiba, who also directed the BURNOUT SYNDROMES music videos for FLY HIGH!! and Hikariareーwhich just so happen to be theme songs for Haikyu!! too. The new video stars Mita Ibuki of Japanese idol group CROWN POP who plays the role of a high school girl.

     

    BURNOUT SYNDROMES – “PHOENIX” Music Video (Premiering January 31, 2020 at Midnight JST)

    The BURNOUT SYNDROMES band members are scheduled to post in the chat during the premiere, so be sure to tune in to watch it in real time. PHOENIX will also be released on all major streaming services, including Spotify.

    BURNOUT SYNDROMES released the following statement: “‘PHOENIX’ is the opening theme for the anime series Haikyu!! TO THE TOP. The song is sure to resonate emotionally with people who have devoted themselves to something. The music video uses time loops, which is a rare addition for us. It’s set in a school where a girl meets the three members of BURNOUT SYNDROMES. The girl dances like a phoenix to the powerful lyrics and music. I think everything in the music video matches together wonderfully, so it’s a must-watch!!”

     

    The music video’s director Takahashi Chiba said: “We went back to basics with this one, using a high school girl as the main role. The song is called ‘PHOENIX.’ The video centres on the idea of the phoenix which dies, resurrects, and transforms over and over again. When you’re alive, you bump into walls, and no matter how many times you may come to that wall, you cannot get over it. But even if you think about that same wall, or the same situation, something is sure to change each time you come face to face with it. When your life seems to be going backwards, if you keep on endeavouring during those simple days when nothing changes, you’ll suddenly arrive at a day when it feels like all your hopes have vanished. It’s better to believe that you will get over that wall of life when you find yourself at the boundary of your own limits. Because nobody knows if that wall, or that scene, will be the last thing you see. I used time loops to express this idea in the music video.”

  • BURNOUT SYNDROMES Release Dr. Stone Opening Theme ‘Good Morning World!’ Music Video

    03.August.2019 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

    Rock band trio BURNOUT SYNDROMES just dropped the music video to their new single Good Morning World! which is set to hit shelves on August 21.

     

    The video was shot at a quarry and in a studio in Ibaraki Prefecture in early June. It makes use of drone footage which captures the grand scale of the location and couples together with the aggressive music performances. The lyrics to the song maintain the band’s concept of “literary rock” which are presented in calligraphy style typography.

     

    The video contains many iconic scenes, especially the beauty of the instance when the glass breaks which represents a new world forming from destruction.

    The song serves as the opening theme for the ongoing TV anime series Dr. Stone. The song was released for digital download today (August 2) and pre-orders for the CD are now open.

    Takashi Chiba, the director of the music video, commented the following: “This is a music video that the band really pushed for! Listening to the song, me and the staff wanted to aim for an open location where we could film with a drone. That was the base of our idea which developed from the song’s lyrics ‘good morning world.’ What even was there before we said good morning to the world in the first place? This is something we thought about and arrived at the idea of the old world order breaking to give life to a new world order. We had a black background behind the band which was the old world and then it cuts [to the new world] when the glass breaks […] We edited it so it focuses on the three members. Please check them out as they build a new world from the old broken one […]”

  • TV Anime Dr. Stone Opening Theme to be Performed by BURNOUT SYNDROMES

    04.June.2019 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

    It has been announced that 3-piece Japanese rock band BURNOUT SYNDROMES will perform the opening theme Good Morning World! for the upcoming TV anime series Dr. Stone which is set to premiere on Tokyo MX and elsewhere on July 5, 2019.

    Dr. Stone is a hugely popular manga series written by Riichiro Inagaki and illustrated by Boichi and serialised in Weekly Shonen Jump. The series won 2nd place in the Comics category for the 2018 Tsugi ni Kuru Manga Awards and send place in the 2018 Shogakukan Manga Awards.

     

    Good Morning World! was written by BURNOUT SYNDROMES vocalist and guitarist Kazuumi Kumagai exclusively for the anime adaptation. The song comes before the band embark on their biggest Japan tour to date.

    Speaking about the collaboration, Kumagai commented: “Nice to meet you. We are BURNOUT SYNDROMES, the ones in charge of the opening theme for the anime series Dr. Stone. When I first read the manga, I felt it in my heart that I wanted to sing the main theme for the series. To tell you the truth, I’m a lover of science too [like in the series]. My room is littered with scholarly essays and magazines like Newton. For me, Dr Stone. is like the crystallisation of all things I love. [Good Morning World!] is a song I have confidence in. It was completed after many talks, changing up the patterns in a number of ways, and trial and error. It’s packed with enthusiasm. I hope that Senku and the others [in the series] can feel the song. It’s completely synchronised with the outlook of the series. Please look forward to it!”
