♪=====♪=====♪=====♪=====♪=====♪=====♪=====♪


◆Argonavis Vo. Masahiro Ito as Ren Nanahoshi


―Congratulations on the release of ArgonavisKanousei/Stand by me!!」What kind of song is the first title track, "Kanousei"?

Following "Restart," the lyrics were written by Yuho Kitazawa and arranged by Takuya Watanabe.


And this is the ED theme for the TV anime “Remake Our Life!”

It's one of those songs that strongly pushes anyone who's trying something!


―Is there anything in particular that you would like us to focus on "Kanousei"?

I think the simple band sound of "Kanousei" conveys the power of the lyrics, songs, and instrumental sounds more directly.


I hope you will enjoy paying attention to the different nuances and accents in each chorus.


―The second song of the title, "Stand by me!! "is a refreshing number that reminds us of a boy's heart. Is there anything that you would like us to focus on?

The song "Stand by me!! was recorded early on in the project.


I want you to find the difference in singing voices and character development.


―What do you think of the jacket illustration this time?

I thought it was another refreshing jacket illustration, with all the blues, stars, and stripes!

I love how fresh Ren's hat is!


―Finally, do you have any words for the navigators reading this interview?


Thank you for all your support!
Also, thank you for reading this far!

The 5th single has been released!

I put everything I've cultivated so far into the new song!
Please listen to it!

◆GYROAXIA Vo. Jin Ogasawara as Nayuta Asahi 


―Congratulations on the release of GYROAXIA "WITHOUT ME/BREAK IT DOWN" 
What kind of song is the first title track, "WITHOUT ME"?

This is a song from the June Brides themed event on the app "ARGONAVIS from BanG Dream! AAside"

It has a freshness and sparkle that is different from the usual GYROAXIA, but at the same time, the message of Nayuta Asahi's music has not been lost, and I think it is a very strong song.


The song is also meant to be an answer to the current situation in the relationship between Nayuta and Satoduka, and if you listen to it with those ears, you may find that the tone of the vocals and guitar will have more flavor.


Is there anything in particular that you would like us to focus on "WITHOUT ME"?

After participating in this content, I started taking something called voice training for the first time in my life.

At the time I was rehearsing "WITHOUT ME", I was learning how to sing cleanly, and Argonavis' "Starry Line'' was strongly motivating me.

So,I have memories of building up my singing voice with the determination to make it sound beautiful (even I can do it).


I hope you can feel such a one-step process.


―The second song of the title, " BREAK IT DOWN" is a hard rock number with the air of a champion.
that reminds us of a boy's heart.
Is there anything that you would like us to focus on?

This was the first song where the singing technique called "scream," which I had gradually taught myself since the recording of "LIAR," changed its role from an accent to the main part of the song.


I was still new to the technology and had a lot of anxiety, so I spent more time listening to Chester Bennington's voice than the material for "Break It Down" before the REC.

I hope it will be satisfactory to everyone.


―What do you think of the jacket illustration this time?

After all, it's a reimport of the cast version of the costume!"Oh, I've worn that dress before! Me too! I've worn that dress before too!" I felt a mysterious excitement.


Also, as an overly chic aside, last year I gave Shinichi Hashimoto a necklace for his birthday.


And since then, he's been wearing it frequently, which makes me very happy. ............ Huh? ...... Satoduka... .........!!!?


―Finally, do you have any words for the navigators reading this interview?

The preliminaries of the 1st Round of the Live Royale Festival are finally underway.

This is a romantic yet severe battle that links the world of the work with the real world.


It would be wonderful if it could be a factor for you to become more immersed as a member of the world of ARGONAVIS.


However, what we want you to focus on the most is the wonderful music of all five bands!

Just enjoy them all!

◆Fantôme Iris Vo. Lounsbery Arthur as Felix・Louis-Claude・Mont d'or

―Congratulations on the release of Fantôme Iris "Zakuro/Kyoki no Melody"What kind of song is the first title track, "Zakuro"?


It's a very energetic and exciting song.In live performances, Zakuro is used as a catalyst to change the flow of the song.


―Is there anything in particular that you would like us to focus on "Zakuro"

It's one of the few songs in Fantôme Iris that features death voices and shouts, so I hope you enjoy it from the intro.


―The second song of the title, " Kyouki no Melody" is a mesmerizing number with a prominent bass line and a thrilling sound.
Is there anything that you would like us to focus on?

The song focuses on the bass player, Haru, so pay attention to the bass line that starts at the beginning.


―What do you think of the jacket illustration this time?

I like the elegance of it. I like it.


―Finally, do you have any words for the navigators reading this interview?

This time, the full soundtrack has finally been released, and I think it's very different from the short version you can hear in the game.

I hope you will enjoy listening to it again and again and feel the world of Fantôme Iris.
