Matenrou Opera (摩天楼オペラ) has revealed the title and track list for their new maxi-single, which will drop in one type, on April 8! Its name is “ether“, and it will be a CD-only containing three-tracks for 1,111yen.

The leading track (ether) from this single was produced and created by Matenrou Opera specifically to be used as the theme song for the horror film “Shinrei Shashinbu (心霊写真部)” (theater edition) and, their keyboardist, Ayame, has been designated as the soundtrack supervisor. Shinrei Shashinbu will play in theaters across Japan sometime this year.

Additionally, Matenrou Opera will visit three record stores in Japan in commemoration of ether’s release. If you’re in the country during any of the following dates below, stop by to get your copy of the brand new single signed by the band members!
