Shine Like a Billion Suns is the ninth studio album by Japanese electronic/rock duo Boom Boom Satellites. It will be released on February 4, 2015.
On July 4, 2014, the band announced that their song "Back in Black" will be used as the opening theme for the upcoming anime adaptation of Ninja Slayer.

On December 31, 2014, programmer Masayuki Nakano revealed in a blog post on their official website that bassist Michiyuki Kawashima's brain tumor issue had once again relapsed at the conclusion of their March 2014 tour, making it the fourth time he had suffered a relapse, and after diagnosis had only been given two more years to live. However, after they had read about boron neutron capture therapy, Kawashima underwent the procedure, all the while writing the new album. Kawashima was recently informed that the spread of the tumors had been successfully stopped, and the band decided to share the information with their fans. Nakano mentioned how proud he was for Kawashima to be able to go through the procedures, continue to tour, and write the album.
