I was so surprised when I first heard the news that our song was selected as a theme song!
I still remember the day when “進撃の巨人 ATTACK ON TITAN” the vol.1 comic book was published. I had been longing for a publishing day, and I bought all the volumes.
All the members of Wagakkiband are also fans of this comic, so we all were honored to receive this news.
It was surprising that this comic will be recreated into live action movie, and now, we can collaborate with the world of comic with our sound. So we often discussed about it.
We gathered our love to the comic into our music.
Enjoy the new look of Wagakkiband!
■Machiya (guitar)
I feel very honored to work on songwriting for a theme song “Hangeki-no-Yaiba(反撃の刃).” I am also one of the fans of “進撃の巨人 ATTACK ON TITAN” series, so I often questioned myself how I could enrich the world of original comic with our music. However, the world of comic is so strongly alive in my body it didn’t take that long to create a track.
I only came to know the title of the drama “進撃の巨人 ATTACK ON TITAN Hangeki-no-Noroshi(反撃の狼煙)” after I named the track “Hangeki-no-Yaiba(反撃の刃).”
Coincident, or inevitable, it is interesting that the word “Hangeki(反撃)” was appeared in both titles.
I believe that the new idea of pop music was born with a classical arrangement and the sound of traditional Japanese instruments.
May this track would be loved by a lot of people!
