Kuroyume to provide theme song for "Hard Romanti-cer"


On September 10th, it was revealed that rock band Kuroyume will be providing the theme song to the upcoming movie "Hard Romanti-cer", starring popular actor Matsuda Shota.

"13 new ache" is a new song written specifically for the movie and this will mark the first time that Kuroyume has been in charge of a movie theme song since their formation twenty years ago. When asked about their tie-up, Kuroyume member Kiyoharu replied, "After I heard that Kuroyume would be doing our first theme song for a movie, we recording "13 new ache" while getting this image of mayhem, madness, chaos from the contents of the [movie]." With a smile, he added, "I feel very happy about [having received] this offer]."

Director Gu also expressed similar feelings when asked about his decision to appoint Kuroyume in charge of the movie's theme song. "When I received consent for my dream-like, violent request for this dream-like, violent movie, I was incredibly thankful... When it comes to Kuroyume's music, I earnestly admire them. Thank you," he said, expressing his gratitude towards the rock band once more.

The movie is based on Gu Su Yeon's popular novel of the same name, and is set in Shimonoseki. Matsuda Shota plays a high school drop-out with slicked back blonde hair named Gu, who becomes involved in a chain of violence after an incident and spends all of his time in fights, painting an image of a youth who's become reckless and lost his way in the world. Nakamura Shidou, Watanbe Atsurou, Nagayama Kento, Emoto Tokio, Kaneko Nobuaki, Watabe Gouta, Maki Youko, and Awaji Keiko also appear in the movie for an all-star cast.

For the special, invite-only version of "Hard Romanti-cer" being shown at the 24th Tokyo International Film Festival (October 22nd through 30th) and the midnight showing of the movie at the 16th Kamayama International Film Festival (October 6th through 14th), the theme song will be provided by the ska band Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra.

Additionally, "13 new ache" will be included on Kuroyume's upcoming album "Headache and Dub Reel Inch", which is slated for a released on November 2nd.
