The vocalist has been featured on get out the vote live streams with politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and even been featured on singles like Machine Gun Kelly’s “DayWalker,” earning him a place on Billboard’s Hot 100.
Corpse Husband shared the news on Twitter with a warm message and brief preview of Ojiro looking — and sounding — menacing in episode two’s dub, which premiered last night. “I couldn’t have asked for a better first role,” the vocalist wrote. “Very honored to be a part of it!”
