    Comment from the Members

    “We walked around PARCO so many times our feet ached, and we shouted so loudly at the giant monster our throats were sore! The best part was messing with the avocados, gummies, and dry ice in the lab scene.

The video stays faithful to that idea and presents it as a story tied together with a marathon and some seriously avant-garde dancing. The members of Atarashii Gakkou no Leaders show us their incredibly impressive moves in this must-see video.

  • Atarashii Gakkou no Leaders to make their major debut with new single “Dokubana” produced by H ZETT M!

    14.April.2017 | MUSIC

    The young people of today define themselves by the term “Hamidashi,” meaning that they abide by the rules but make known their individuality and freedom. Atarashii Gakkou no Leaders are a 4-member dance performance unit that are popular among the youth, a group whose live performances showcase powerful dance routines to their songs. In a unique tie-up, Atarashii Gakkou no Leaders are to make their major debut under Victor Entertainment with the release of their first single “Dokubana” on June 6th.


    The producer of the song is none other than the piano prodigy H ZETT M, the band master of the famous H ZETTRIO and whose music was used at the closing ceremony of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. Commenting on the track, H ZETT M says, “The girls are keen and sharp, so I kept that in mind when creating the song and gave it a feeling of speed that embodies the ‘now.'” The new song is different from anything they have done to date. The first track on the single, “Dokubana,” is a piano rock tune that sounds a little like something from the Showa era. The second track, “Wakaranai,” has a city pop feel and tells of the fleeing nature of sudden love. These songs are overflowing with that “individuality,” and are in line with their “avant-garde” and “unique” dancing. It’s the birth of a new Atarashii Gakkou no Leaders.


    In addition, the title track “Dokubana” has been selected to be the theme song for the TV Asahi Friday night drama “Joshuu Seven.” The drama begins on Friday April 21st, so if you’re in Japan be sure to check it out.

    The group will also be performing for “Nico Nico Chou Kaigi Chou Ongaku Matsuri 2017” on Saturday April 29th where they will most likely perform just the one song – “Dokubana” – so don’t miss out.
