Melodic hardcore band waterweed
will release a new best-of album on May 12th.
Deep inside + Unknown best
will feature 15 tracks, including Deep inside
, which is an ending theme for the popular anime series "Kingdom".
When the latest season of "Kingdom" began broadcasting in Japan in April 2020 with
as its ending theme, waterweed
had a number of plans to capitalize on the increased exposure the anime tie-up brought them. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, their plans for live performances and releases had to be cancelled.
The broadcast of "Kingdom" was also temporarily put on hold due to the effects of the pandemic, only resuming this spring.
During the pandemic, as a dedicated live band, waterweed
have also been showing their support for Japan’s suffering live music venues. Through their "Pay For The Future Now" initiative, they sold tickets for a tour that
will eventually be held after the pandemic ends, raising about 2.5 million yen (roughly 23,000 USD) in advance ticket sales for 22 music venues around Japan.
