Hemenway / 2nd Digital Single “Inori” Now Available for Overseas



“Inori,” Hemenway’s 2nd single of the 10 consecutive monthly release series released on 2/27/2013 in Japan, is now available for overseas download on iTunes. The title song ‘Inori’ was performed for the first time at their live at eggman on 2/13/2013 as the first stage of the 10 consecutive monthly live series. As this number was particularly written to send out an encouraging message for those affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake occurred on 3/11/2011 in Tohoku area of Japan, Isaac presented this song as his testimony that we are powerless when we try to do things just on our own and no one can live without someone else’s help, so everyone shall help and support one another and especially those who are in need. He also expressed, “I hope today will be a better day than yesterday and tomorrow will be brighter than today.”

On the night of their live streaming of “Hemenway Street Vol. 7” on STOLABO TOKYO USTREAM on 2/27/2013(Wed/JST), all members shared their sentiments and stories about preparing for this release. Isaac sympathized for those who suffered from the earthquake and talked about how it affected him to look back on his life. Charm mentioned that all human relationships are based on relying on one another and that’s what makes us human. He pointed out that just like in the music video of ‘Inori,’ people are connected to one another and each of us affects someone’s life. Ogaching and Toshi added that they wish many people will be able to relate to this song in their own ways and the lyrics can also be a message for not just a particular occasion, but for various scenes throughout our lives. The members also expressed their wish to communicate more with their fans through lives and Ustream programs in the future and promised that there will be more exciting news to come. So, keep your eyes peeled for their future updates and look forward to the next release and live streaming!
