BUMP OF CHICKEN dazzle with animated PV for new song “Answer”

This week popular rock band BUMP OF CHICKEN made their latest song, “Answer”, available for purchase on Japanese digital download services.  “Answer” is currently being used as the opening theme for popular anime Sangatsu no Lion, their second such collaboration with the series following “Fighter” (which is also being used as the show’s ending theme) back in 2014.

In support of this release, the band has chosen to upload the music video for the track’s TV-size variant to their Youtube channel.  This short PV was prepared by animation studio Shaft and features footage from Sangatsu no Lion which has been retooled to better fit the song.

Furthermore, BUMP OF CHICKEN are also releasing their brand new live DVD / Blu-ray “BUMP OF CHICKEN STADIUM TOUR 2016 “BFLY” NISSAN STADIUM 2016/7/16,17” physically this week.  To promote this release, they published another video to Youtube:  the live performance of their song “GO” from the DVD.
