--Over a year after the release of your last album, “amp-reflection,” you’re finally releasing your new single, “RPG.”
Uchimura: It is. It’s been a year. (laugh)
--(laugh) You appeared in Summer Fest, after you completed your album tour last June. School Food Punishment (SFP) hasn’t had a lot of time in the limelight... What was it like?
U: A little before the tour... After we finished the album, we were spending a lot of time doing interviews, and we spent a lot of time thinking about what we wanted to do next. The year of our debut we were moving so fast that we went from one thing to the next without even time to take it in, so we wanted to make a fresh start of things. We thought about where we wanted to start from, but we of course wanted to finish the tour... And after the tour we had Summer Fest, so we figured we could start after that. So we spent a lot of time preparing for whatever was coming up next.
Hidai: It’s not that we never stopped doing work for the band - we weren’t writing songs while planning our next move - but instead we were constantly thinking about how we wanted the band to evolve.
