Single sold over 100,000 copies in its 1st week in Japan

Band Linked Horizon's single "Jiyuu e no Shingeki" was added to iTunes in North America on December 9. The single includes three tracks, including both openings for the Attack on Titan anime series. Songs include "Guren no Yumiya," "Jiyuu no Tsubasa," and "Moshi Kono Kabe no Naka ga Ikken no Ie Dato Shitara." Each track costs US$.99 or US$2.97 for the whole album.

The single was a best-seller in Japan, ranking #2 during its first week of sales and beating "Preserved Roses" by Nana Mizuki and T.M. Revolution. The single sold 129,110 total copies in its first week.

Linked Horizon is a relatively new project from Sound Horizon composer Revo. This is the first single or album from either Linked Horizon or Sound Horizon to sell over 100,000 copies. The band will perform in this year's Kōhaku Uta Gassen (Red and White Song Battle), the New Year's Eve singing contest that is Japan's most viewed music television program.
