According to the X JAPAN official website as well as YOSHIKI NET, X JAPAN will debut the new song "I.V." as the end title song for the fourth movie in the worldwide record breaking SAW franchise.

SAW IV comes from the same team that produced Catacombs, featuring the end title song "Blue Butterfly," written and produced by YOSHIKI. Approached last July about producing the theme song for SAW IV, YOSHIKI chose X JAPAN to perform the song out of all the projects he is involved with.

Written and composed by YOSHIKI, with lyrics completely in English due to the international target audience, the song will feature TOSHI on vocals, PATA on guitar and HEATH on bass. In attendance at TOSHI‘s vocal recording, YOSHIKI took the lead in overseeing the English lyrics.

The song offers the sound of all five members, because "I.V." includes as yet unreleased material by HIDE.

X JAPAN will shoot a promotional video at Tokyo Odaiba Aqua City on October 22nd. There is no mention of a release date for "I.V."

More details and possible exclusives coming soon, as well as a special on X JAPAN.
