KAT-TUN to release new urban rock single “TRAGEDY”

KAT-TUN will be releasing their new single titled “TRAGEDY” on February 10, 2016. TRAGEDY will serve as the opening theme for NTV’s animated series “Kindaichi Shonen no Jikenbo R”. The song is described as an urban rock song with a heavy beat melody tinged with sorrow. Furthermore, it captures the anime’s mysterious outlook on the world, showcasing KAT-TUN’s unwavering world.

        Whoa, even if someone else had probably posted this for them, I had no idea J&A looked for composers and lyricists outside of their own circles/sources. Is this often?

      • ran

        oh man, no falsettos in main vocals?
        I like their falsettos :(

    • Joi

      Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees. I know some Hyphens are still trying to accept Junno’s graduation but I personally feel so freaking blessed to have him participate in one more single. Knowing that this will be his goodbye will make this single and promo cycle more special than any others.
      Just please let it be a kickass title track. And I’ll be looking forward to the side tracks. You can’t go wrong with KAT-TUN’s b-sides and since RUCCA is composing I can’t help but get even more excited. :DD

    • ran

      lol first No More Pain, now TRAGEDY.
      Really looking forward to this single! And Atsuku Nare is finally released!

    • Ja’Crispy

      I hope the song title was decided on before the whole departure situation. Can’t say much for the anime, but I’ll probably get this single. Aside from binge watching the PVs and getting the Myojo with Junno’s 10,000 character interview, I’ll be content with this. It’s so great how after someone leaves, they try to act like they never existed. I’ll be looking forward to the flashback photos with only the three of them, like that’s all there ever was. So stupid/irritating.

      • ohhello

        Um, yeah maybe management would rather act like they didn’t exist because of bad publicity for a group they still want to exploit with a very, very fickle fanbase, but as far as I know, the boys have /never/ acted like the others weren’t with them throughout their journey. The members have mentioned Jin and Koki several times before, and they are even very openly teased about the fate of the group, so I can’t imagine what you mean by them acting like “that’s all there ever was.” If anything, it’s the company’s problem and not the group’s and even then I wouldn’t blame them for doing so.

        • Ja’Crispy

          If you can’t imagine what I mean, I guess you really don’t know what I’m talking about. The association, of course! Please don’t think I was talking about the members, because no fan would think that. I hate seeing the part of the Myojo magazine that shows pictures of the past. Recently, they only show the four of them, but soon it’ll only be three. They work so hard to make sure to exclude Ryutaro from HSJ’s old pics, and it just hurts to be a fan and have to see that. Hey! Say! JUMP will ALWAYS be 10, and KAT-TUN will always be K-amenashi, A-kanishi, T-aguchi, U-eda, and N-akamaru.

          I don’t know how you confused my words, but that kind of thinking is disgusting and I’ll never think that way. Although it’s a bit insulting, everyone makes mistakes. KAT-TUN 4 life!!! Peace out~!

          • Kiki

            I hate when they do that. It’s not like people would go through PTSD seeing Jin, Koki and Ryutaro. People come and go, it doesn’t mean they never existed.

            • Ja’Crispy

              Thank you. Someone with some sense. It makes me sick, really. It’s like only the fellow members and the fans care about them, and the association is just using them, like… “They betrayed us. Their faces must never be shown again.” Gimme a break! Makes me want to cry out in anger.

          • i

            have you ever considered that it’s actually money-related excuses for the magz? aka they have to pay those people when using their face after their departure from Johnny’s.

            • Ja’Crispy

              Have you ever considered that’s bs. Those are old photos they’ve already been paid for; it belongs to the company. It’s not like we’re bringing them back for photo shoot specials~

    • Caprikjpopcorn

      Such a unfortunate name for their last single with Takeguchi.

    • What a fitting title.

    • eplizo

      That title….. It sounds good already. I really hope it’s amazing since this might be the last single with Junno… :'(

    • kazumi

      Yeah! new single with 2 PVs and with 4-nin. I was suprised the song would be for anime kindaichi. I didn’t know there was new anime for kindaichi. I thought it was for anime joker game (or maybe KAT-TUN would sing for anime joker game too #so-greedy). Then how about kame’s new drama “kaito yamaneko”?? I hope KAT-TUN would sing the OST.

    • Kiki

      Upsetting title =(
      I wonder how they’re going to perform it after Junno leaves.

    • inchkame

      I’m happy KAT-TUN having new single but also sad that it will be junno’s last single with them. Anyways, looking forward to this one. It’s good that it’s an urban rock. The kind of music that differs them from other Johnny’s. Also looking forward for Kame’s drama OST. Hope KAT-TUN will be the one to sing it.
