PENTAGON will release their new single, Hijiki to KARAAGE (ひじきとカラアゲ), on 2015-09-02 in 5 types (one for each members). Further details TBA. The band has also announced details of their special program: TETSUKIZU Matsuri (テツキズ祭).
- The band gives an explanation about TETSUKIZU―鉄絆, it means “iron bonds”―but it's super-typical BS about the ~unbreakable bonds~ between fans and band members, friends and family, etc.
PENTAGON will collaborate with NICO Visu (ニコびじゅ), the visual kei branch of video service NICO NICO:On 2015-08-25, the band will hold their “research recital” (live), PENTAGON no Jiyuukenkyuu Happyoukai (ペンタゴンの自由研究発表会), at Ikebukuro (池袋) P'PARCO. Tickets are 3,000 yen and will be distributed randomly to those who form an orderly line at the venue on the day of the concert. After the show, attendees will be allowed to take a photo with the band, and will also receive a signed photo as a present.On the same day, at 16:00 JST, PENTAGON will appear on NICO Visu, streaming worldwide. I assume this is just a talk session
Later that day, the band will hold their live, TETSUKIZU Matsuri ~Oretachi no Tetsukizu~ (テツキズ祭~俺たちの鉄絆~), at Toshima Koukaidou (豊島公会堂).
After the success of the PENTAGON-designed parka, the band has announced their t-shirts and sailor shirts. The shirts will be sold at the web shop from 2015-06-15 through 2015-06-20. And of course, fans attending the TETSUKIZU activities are encouraged to wear them!
- The new single will be pre-sold at Toshima Koukaidou and the nearby Like an Edison, on 2015-08-25. Those who purchase 3 types on that day will receive a privilege DVD with two live recordings from the band's first oneman. Those who purchase all 5 types will receive a DVD with the same two live recordings plus a third live recording. </li>
