The members of Sandaime J SOUL BROTHERS from EXILE TRIBE held a press conference on their 12th debut anniversary, November 10, to talk about their activities in 2023.
First, the group will release their new single "STARS" on February 1. It's their first single since "JSB IN BLACK," which was released back in October of 2021. Imaichi Ryuji commented, "It symbolizes our comeback, restart, and next year's activities. It's a song that maximizes Sandaime J SOUL BROTHERS's performance and incorporates a message that we can deliver in our 12 year of activities." As the coupling track, the single will include "Kono Uchuu no Katasumi de," which was written and produced by ØMI.
In addition, they will hold a nationwide arena tour called 'Sandaime J SOUL BROTHERS LIVE TOUR 2023 "STARS" ~Land of Promise~' from February 18. On deciding to hold an arena tour, NAOTO explained, "After concluding our ten year anniversary last year, we wanted to return to our roots and hold an arena tour where we could stop in every region of the country more precisely. I'm sure that there are people who are still unable go far. Thinking of those people, we wanted to go to them including places we haven't gone to in a long time. We want to create a year where we shorten the distance with our fans."
Finally, it was announced that the group's first live film 'JSB3 LIVE FILM / RISING SOUND' will be screened in theaters nationwide. Directed by Ninomiya “NINO” Daisuke (HiGH&LOW THE WORST X), the live film will feature a remix of footage from their online lives 'LIVE×ONLINE,' 'LIVE×ONLINE IMAGINATION,' 'LIVE×ONLINE INFINITY~JSB HISTORY~,' and 'LIVE×ONLINE BEYOND THE BORDER.' It will be available in Dolby Cinemas from January 6, then other theaters from January 13. You can check out its teaser below.
