Electronic music act's 1st collaboration in 8 years with CG Appleseed's Aramaki

The J-Rock electronic duo Boom Boom Satellites will perform the theme song "Another Perfect Day" for the upcoming Starship Troopers: Invasion CG-animated film directed by Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed). This will be Boom Boom Satellites' first collaboration with Aramaki since Appleseed in 2004.

Boom Boom Satellites' single for the film's theme song will be released in Japan on July 18. Starship Troopers: Invasion will open in theaters in Japan on July 21. Flint Dille is writing the screenplay for the film after working as a story editor on The Transformers and G.I. Joe television series of the 1980s. Joseph Chou (Appleseed films, Halo Legends, proposed live-action Evangelion) is producing the new project. Edward Neumeier and Casper Van Dien of the live-action Starship Troopers film are executive producers.

Boom Boom Satellites include bassist and programmer Masayuki Nakano, with guitarist and vocalist Michiyuki Kawashima. The duo first debuted in Europe in 1997. The group has created music for anime projects such as Appleseed and Vexille - 2077 Isolation of Japan. They also performed a theme song for Xam'd: Lost Memories and, most recently, the ending theme song for the fifth installment of the Mobile Suit Gundam UC series. The group performed at the New York Anime Festival in 2010.
