    Three-piece rock band PELICAN FANCLUB made their major debut last autumn. It has just been announced that their new song Sangenshoku will be used as the second opening theme for the ongoing TV anime series Dr. Stone.

    Dr. Stone is a hugely popular manga series written by Riichiro Inagaki and illustrated by Boichi and serialised in Weekly Shonen Jump. The anime adaptation began airing in July. The second opening theme will debut in the anime this October. Details surrounding the CD release will be announced in the near future.

     

    PELICAN FANCLUB wrote the song after reading the manga series. We have yet to hear any of the track itself, but the band are known for the great amplitude of their songs and the unique lyrics by band vocalist and guitarist End Alien. We look forward to hearing what a PELICAN FANCLUB and Dr. Stone collaboration sounds like.

    Speaking about their tie-in with the series, End Alien commented: “Me and [the series character] Senku are the same in that we like to make things. By reading the manga and then writing the lyrics, I was able to write in such a way that could be described as like a chemical compound, with both elements mixing together. When you mix colours together they it becomes a new colour.”

     

    He continues: “When you mix words together they take on meaning. This song will become something unique to the people who watch the anime series and think about these things. Please enjoy both the opening song we have create along with Senku creating different things with science.”

  • 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!”
