DECIDED was chosen to be used to promote the new live action Gintama movie which opened in Japan theatres last Sat on 14th July .
The film is based on Sorachi Hideaki's popular manga Gintama that's currently being serialised in Gekkan Shounen Jump . Directed by Fukuda Yuichi , the film stars Oguri Shun as Sakata Gintoki , Suda Masaki as Shimura Shinpachi & Hashimoto Kanna as Kagura .
On providing the theme song , vocalist TAKUYA∞ commented , "We wanted to provide a trigger to liven up the world of Gintama , which is full of humour , action & emotion ."
RANGE is 1 of 2 B-sides found in DECIDED & for this , it was selected to be used in the ads of RED BULL BOX CART RACE TOKYO 2017 that featured UVERworld themselves .
UVERworld was appointed the ambassador for the upcoming RED BULL BOX CART RACE TOKYO 2017 in Tokyo that will take place on 22nd Oct .
Red Bull's soapbox race is a global event where amateur racers build their own soapbox car to race down a course , competing to get the fastest time . The event is know for the outrageous designs of its soapbox cars .
UVERworld recorded RANGE specially for RED BULL BOX CART RACE TOKYO 2017 . "We made this song to provide competitors with a boost . We wanted the song to make them say to themselves 'I won't give up and I want to keep going forward' ," TAKUYA∞ said .
DECIDED is 1 full on fast paced song which's different from Itteki no Eikyou as it was unusually mellow . This time round , UVERworld speed things up a lot more with their latest single offering , with some saxophone sounds thrown in for good measure too .
UVERworld's 9th album TYCOON will be released on 2nd Aug & DECIDED will be included in the album as track #7 with it tagged as DECIDED (Album ver.) .
TYCOON will be UVERworld's 1st studio album release since 2014's Ø CHOIR .
