Golden Bomber’s new single tops the Oricon weekly chart for the first time

“Visual-kei air band” Golden Bomber’s new single “Dance My Generation” (released on January 1st) sold 125,000 copies in the first week, and topped Oricon’s weekly single chart for the week of January 14th. Since their debut back in May of 2008, this marks the first time for them to top the chart whether it be that of the singles or album charts.

It was also the first time in 9 years and a month for an indie artist, who does not belong to a major label, to top the weekly single ranking since Mongol800 last achieved it with “Yorokobi no Uta” (released in December 2003). Since Mongol800 topped the chart in the second week of the release, Golden Bomber is the first indie artist to top the chart in the first week.

Additionally, 11 of Golden Bomber’s previous works including “DT Suteru/Let’s Go ED” (released in November 2012 under the name of “Golden Ixion Bomber” for the TV anime “Ixion Saga DT“) ranked in TOP100 of the weekly single chart which was the best record for an indie artist. Moreover, the rank for one of the 11 works, “Memeshikute” (released in October 2009), rose to No.4 from No.31, which is the highest rank for the particular single since the its release.

Up until now, Golden Bomber’s highest ranked single was “Yowasete Mojito” (released in November 2011) as it achieved No. 3, and highest ranked album was “Golden Album” (released in January 2012) as it ranked No. 2.

“Dance My Generation” is also their first work to sell over 100,000 copies in the first week. The “Vo-karu (vocal)” Kiryuin Sho, who writes and composes all their songs, commented, “This would not have been possible without everybody! Thank you!”

I am seriously so excited for them right now. I just hope Kiryuin gets time to rest his voice before the tour and doesn't push too hard...
