ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION Announce Greatest Hits Album & Japan Tour!

16.February.2018 | MUSIC

ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION have announced that they will release a new greatest hits album, Best Hit AKG 2 (2012-2018).

ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION
The greatest hits album is their second in total and serves as a follow up to their 2012 release, Best Hit AKG. The sequel features a selection of 16 songs from their discography from 2012 to the present day, including a brand new song titled Seija no March, for a total of 17 tracks.

Seija no March is the band’s first new song in almost a year since Kouya wo Aruke (March 29, 2017) and draws on the value of holding those around you closely. It’s a telling love song with a laced with a prayer to live, sung with impressive vocals by Goto. The album is a special compilation of the ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION of today.

 

BEST HIT AKG 2 (2012-2018)_初回
The DVD included with the first press limited edition features 6 tracks the band performed live at Toyosu PIT in December last year on their tour with FEEDER, ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION ×FEEDER Tour 2017 Supported by PIA. It also includes rare footage of their new song, Seija no March.

 

BEST HIT AKG Official Bootleg “HONE”
In addition to the new greatest hits album, two further compilation albums will be released simultaneously: Best Hit AKG Official Bootleg “HONE” and Best Hit AKG Official Bootleg “IMO”. These albums are ‘unofficial’ greatest hits albums compiled and posted by vocalist and guitarist Goto on his blog. These ‘fictional’ albums have become ‘official bootlegs’ to be released.

Each album features 15 songs inspired by bones (“hone”) and yams (“imo”) respectively. The bone and yam album artwork was drawn by Goto himself.

 

BEST HIT AKG Official Bootleg “IMO”
ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION will embark on a nationwide tour titled Tour 2018 “BONES & YAMS” starting in June. The tour includes 22 dates and is looking to be a conceptual tour – as the title suggests, it will be centered around the official bootleg albums. Tickets are available until February 21st via the band’s official homepage.

ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION just keep on giving and show no signs of stopping anytime soon. Be sure to keep up to date with the latest information.
