Hello! This is Tak from Imari Tones, Japanese Christian rock band.
It seems like years since I posted last update.
But it’s because we have been working hard.
It’s funny because it’s still several month ago we have finished making our upcoming album and we are already working on new songs and planning to do more recordings soon.
Our new album will include 12 tracks.
Some of you may already have seen the artwork on our Facebook page, but here it is.
It’s titled “Japan Metal Jesus”.
It will be released sometime later this year.
If things go well, it will be available on physical CDs as well as digital downloads.
And today, I want to share 1 very important song with you.
The song called “Living Water”.
Why is the song very important?
Because we are singing it in Japanese language.
This is a WORSHIP SONG.
Singing worship songs in Japanese means so much to us.
We recorded this song “Living Water” both in English and Japanese.
Both version will be included in the new album.
But this Japanese version is very special to us.
As usual, we set this song downloadable on SoundCloud.
So please go ahead and download, and share it with everybody.
The music video for the song is made from the movies from an outreach concert we did with our church VIC on May 19th. It was a small concert but it was a blessed time. We hope you can feel the happy vibe from the video.
An update on our touring plan:
I think now we can make it official.
We are going to join “Extreme Tour” this year.
We made friends with them last year and they are very serious Christian music tour in USA.
At this point we can’t say exact dates, but we are planning to join them, in the end of August, and the first half of September. And we are going to visit NorthWest part of USA.
Right now we are praying very hard for the tour.
Because touring is always a challenge and we need God’s help.
We really appreciate if you include us in your prayer, so that everything goes well and we can join the tour with no problem.
Because we believe this is a mission God gave to us.
Thank you very much and God bless you.
