UVERworld will release their new single “HOURGLASS” on March 10.
‘HOURGLASS’ will be used as the theme song for the movie ‘Brave: Gunjou Senki’ starring Arata Mackenyu (March 12 release). The single will include “Teenage Love,” a love song that the band performed on its arena tour last December, as the integrated track.
Comic Natalie states that the Limited Edition will be accompanied by a DVD featuring live videos of “HOURGLASS” and “ROB THE FRONTIER” from TAKUYA’s (Vo) birthday which was live at Yokohama Arena on December 21, 2020, and a live video of “AS ONE” from their Christmas live at Nippon Budokan on December 25.
According to MAL:
Uverworld (stylized as UVERworld) is a Japanese rock band consisting of 6 members. They started out in 2003 with 7 members under the name of Sound Goku Road (or Sangoku Road, in the independent music scene). Their demo CDs back then sold 3000 copies.
Two of the members back then, Seika (saxophone) and Ryouhei (2nd vocal) left the band after that. Two years later, in 2005, they signed with Gr8! Records and got an instant hit with the second Bleach opening song D-tecnoLife, as it debuted in the Oricon charts on spot 4. Later on they released their first album Timeless, on which ex-Saxophonist Seika returned for track 5.
Their highest ranking song at that time was spot 3 in the Oricon charts for the third opening song of Blood+, Colors of the Heart. In 2007 they released their second album Bugright, the third in 2008 Proglution, and more after that. As of 2015, Uverworld has released over 25 singles and 8 studio albums.
