It looks like BUCK-TICK has us looking forward to the new year already! The band has announced that they will be releasing a new single titled Datenshi (堕天使), alongside the previously announced PARADE III tribute album, on January 29, 2020. The single will be available in three different versions. The regular edition comes with the title track followed by a second track titled Luna Park. The limited singles collect the same two songs along with a live track taken from their The Day in Question 2019 live shows. As of now, we are unsure which song it will be, but we can have fun guessing which song will make an appearance! Additionally, fans can choose from a regular DVD or Blu-Ray format from the limited editions in which the music video for Datenshi is included.
Vocalist Atsushi Sakurai has written the lyrics for both songs on the single, whilst the guitarists Hisashi Imai composed the music for Datenshi, and Hidehiko Hoshino composed Luna Park. Datenshi translates roughly to “fallen angel”, so we are looking forward to what the band will create with this concept!
This single follows-up from Kemonotachi no Yoru/RONDO (獣たちの夜/RONDO), which released in May of this year. It is likely we will see these songs on a future BUCK-TICK album! Feel free to share your anticipations with us in the comments!
