SEKAI NO OWARI to release first Double A-side Single since going Major

Following the successful release of their new single “ANTI-HERO”, pop/rock band SEKAI NO OWARI have announced that they will be releasing another single in just under two months on September 25th.  “SOS / Present” will be issued as a Double A-side single, the group’s first since their indie days, in three versions:  a regular CD-Only edition, a CD+DVD version which will include the music video and making-of footage for “SOS” (Limited Edition A), and a second CD+DVD version which will include four as yet unselected live recordings from the band’s “TOKYO FANTASY” concert on October 4th of last year (Limited Edition B).

“SOS” has been picked up as the theme song for the second of the two Attack on Titan films, “Shingeki no Kyojin ATTACK ON TITAN End of the World”, and will be produced by Ken Thomas, who is famous for his work with Icelandic band Sigur Ros.  On the other hand, “Present” was written specifically as the image song for the junior high school branch of the 82nd NHK Nationwide School Music Competition, a yearly choral contest which takes place every September.  In addition, the single will also include the acoustic versions of “Snow Magic Fantasy” and “Pierrot” which were revealed at their “Twilight City” concerts earlier this month.

Read on below for a look at the single’s complete track list and look forward to continued updates as its release date draws closer.
