Sonic Forces Main Theme Vocalist Revealed
A few months ago during a Sonic official stream on YouTube, Aaron Webber revealed that during the musical process for vocal songs in Sonic games since Sonic Unleashed, Jun Senoue has often been in charge of deciding who the lead vocalist is, and the man himself was in America not that long ago doing just that. Now, earlier today, the new vocalist was shown off for Sonic Forces main theme, titled “Fist Bump”.
With this reveal, we now know that Douglas Robb, from the musical group Hoobastank, has written and recorded vocals for the main theme. Reading the description of the video shows the credits for the song as follows:
Vocals & Lyrics by Douglas Robb (Hoobastank)
Composed & Arranged by Tomoya Ohtani
Strings Arranged by Takahito Eguchi
For those who may not have heard of Douglass Robb, he is part of the previously mentioned band Hoobastank, a rock group formed in the 90’s that saw significant popularity within the early 2000’s. Hoobastank had notable radio hits such as “The Reason” and “Crawling in the Dark”.
