Wagakki Band is keeping busy this summer! Even though they released a video just two weeks ago, a new one has just appeared today! This time, it’s for “Hangeki no Yaiba,” the theme song for the new Attack on Titan series produced from dTV. That’s right, now you can get your Wagakki Band fix and your Attack on Titan spin-off fix all in one place!
The video features the band performing in a crumbling church and wielding weapons that look like they were taken straight from the set of the show. The song itself features Wagakki Band’s distinctive sound and it sure to get your blood pumping. Check it out below and blast it while you get ready to fight some giants!
Don’t worry! Your speakers aren’t broken — the first 18 seconds are silent. While it might seem like an odd choice for a music video, it certainly does build up the tension. Though we’ve seen the band waving swords around before, we’re pretty sure this is the first time we’ve seen any of them anywhere near some 3-D maneuver gear. Sadly, we don’t actually get to see anyone wearing the gear, but it does look pretty cool on the floor behind them.
▼ Did their parents never tell them not to throw their clothes on the ground?!
Unfortunately, it looks as if they’re only releasing the short version for now, but if you’re looking for more information on the Attack on Titan mini-series, there’s an official trailer as well. It also features a few snippets of the new Wagakki Band song.
In addition to being featured as the theme song for the show, “Hangeki no Yaiba” will also appear on their new album Yasou Emaki, to be released in a few weeks on September 2. If you’re burning to see the full-length video, DVD and Blu-Ray versions of the album will feature it and a number of other videos as well.
