It was announced today that ex-BIGMAMA drummer Ib Riad has officially joined rock band [Alexandros].

Riad is filling the position vacated by Satoyasu Shomura, who just formally left the band this March following their 10th anniversary show at Yoyogi National Gymnasium due to his struggle with focal dystonia.

A friend of Shomura's, Riad started serving as the band's support drummer in 2019, when Shomura first took a break from performing live with [Alexandros] to focus on recovering from his condition.

In addition, [Alexandros] will be releasing a new single on May 5th. Titled Senkou, it will be the main theme song for the first movie from the three-part film adaptation of "Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway's Flash", which will be premiering on May 7th. The film was originally scheduled for release in July 2020, but it was delayed due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

The single will be available in four editions: a CD-only regular edition, two limited editions featuring a bonus DVD or Blu-ray disc respectively, and a deluxe limited edition that adds an HG 1/144 RX-78-2 GUNDAMVer. [Alexandros] original Gunpla (a scaled plastic "Gundam" model) and exclusive "Gundam"-themed cover artwork.

All four editions will feature the same three tracks: the title song and its English and instrumental versions. The bonus DVD and Blu-ray included with the limited editions will feature live footage from [Alexandros]' Secret Session Live at Shimokitazawa SHELTER.

A trailer for "Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway's Flash" featuring a preview of Senkou is available below:
