SKE48’s 5th single “BANZAI Venus” will be released on March 9th.
This was announced on January 15th at the commemoration handshake event for “1! 2! 3! 4! YOROSHIKU” in Nagoya. This was the last day of the group’s nation-wide handshake event. The last event was held in their home base of Nagoya and more than 3,800 fans showed up. Before singing the final song “1! 2! 3! 4! YOROSHIKU” of their mini concert, Matsui Jurina announced their new single, which caused lots of cheers.
Also, it was announced that they will be taking applications for extras in the new video clip. Recording will be in Aichi prefecture on January 18th and 19th. The fans who want to be pumped up for the new song can definitely participate. Application details can be found on their official website
Member Comments (Matsui Jurina/Team S)
Even though I’m happy for just being able to do a new song, I feel even more happy that I’m the representative member who gets to announce this to you all. I’m also looking forward to you all using your imaginations and saying what you all think the song could be like through the title. I want to quickly show you all “BANZAI Venus”. All of the members want to show it off to Nagoya and go out and meet everyone in the nation. BANZAI!”
