One of Japan’s most enigmatic new names in rock, blank paper, have today unleashed knock-out new single ‘High legacy’, along with its official English lyric video. Watch it above!
The track follows in the blazing footsteps of debut single ‘enemy’, which has been streamed over a million times since its release four months ago. The track was also used as the theme song to mecha anime ‘AMAIM Warrior at the Borderline‘ (released in Japan under the title ‘Kyokai Senki’) from animation studio Sunrise Beyond (Gundam, Cowboy Bebop, Code Geass), and also as the entrance music for Muay Thai athlete Yoshinari Nadaka.
‘High legacy’ sees blank paper continue making moves in the world of combat sports with the track being chosen as a theme song for two wrestling events in their home country of Japan. The track is the theme song for the New Japan Pro Wrestling tournament ‘Best of the Super Jr. 29’, as well as the ending theme for Japanese TV programme World Pro Wrestling through the months of June and July.
Regarding the new release, blank paper’s vocalist C45P3R comments, “Nice to meet you all, we are blank paper. Our new single ‘High legacy’ will be released on June 3. It’s a very exciting fight song. Please listen to it!”.
With its powerful sound and links to wrestling within its lyrics and its collaborations with the sport, ‘High legacy’ is expected to create an impact with fans of rock music and wrestling around the world.
In addition, it has also been announced that blank paper will travel overseas for a short Japan / anime tour this summer, with shows scheduled at HYPER JAPAN in London and OTAKUTHON in Montreal, and further appearances expected to be announced shortly.
