For the new track, Raiden took on the role of an executive producer who brought Kpop group THE BOYZ into the mix for vocals. The song’s lyrics aim to express the energy and passion of the team’s fans.
Marsh mentioned that his favorite part of Last Man Standing is the chorus. “The song really captures the moment for the team, and it will be the soundtrack that guides us to our fourth World Championship,” he said.
