Ahead of Their One-man, Checkmate Debuted a New Song

There was actually even more nice-and-loudol music to bump into this week, and it’s even new in this case! Checkmate, who are cool as hell and really need to get a bump somehow, tweeted out this clip the other day, and I got really excited … and then kind of forgot about it for a minute because Daichi, but, here you go! Debuted live over the weekend, “KSGK”:

I love when songs are titled with initials; it could mean anything!

That’s not quite as furiously loud and gnarly and hate-filled as you can often get with Checkmate, but it’s still pretty on point in an idol-meets-punk kind of way. I’d have liked maybe one growl here or there, but you take what you’re given sometimes.

Checkmate’s first one-man is Friday. May the gods help us all.

    KSGK is a standard abbreviation for kusogaki, which means “brat” or “little shit” or a term like that.
