Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba Hashira Training Arc


Opening Theme Song
(Sony Music Labels / BEAT SEEKER MUSIC)
MY FIRST STORY is now a major force in the music scene, having performed at many music festivals around the country and alongside foreign artists. They first formed in Shibuya in the summer of 2011. The band set their personal best record when they released their fourth album, ANTITHESE, which reached number 4 on the Oricon weekly chart in 2016. Subsequently, they launched a nationwide tour for the album, covering all 47 prefectures in Japan. The tour's last stop saw them perform solo at Nippon Budokan for the first time, selling out on the same day and attracting 12,000 fans to the live concert. The band celebrated their 10th anniversary since their debut and released their best album X in 2022, a highly requested work from the fans. 2023 saw the band release music every month of the year and launch another nationwide tour in Japan covering all 47 prefectures – something they haven't done for seven years now.
In November of the same year, they performed a one-night-only live show titled VS alongside fellow rock band ONE OK ROCK at Tokyo Dome.
MY FIRST STORY is a unique rock band that continues to evolve and progress their sound – don't miss the music they have to offer.
