Hemenway / Hopeful Message for a Brand New Start with 4th Digital Single



As the 4th release of the 10-month consecutive release series, Hemenway is releasing “Hanafuru Yoru” on 4/24/2013 with a hopeful message for those who are starting in a new environment to pursue their dreams or beginning another chapter in their lives. Toshi joined Isaac to write the lyrics for this song, sharing the story of how they dreamed of playing their music in Japan someday when they were studying in the USA. The lyrics also express heartfelt thanks for the support of the loved ones who have always been there for them and encouraged them.

The audience at Hemenway’s 3rd live of the 10-month live series at shibuya eggman for “Mix UP!! vol.50” was extremely excited to watch Hemenway perform ‘Hanafuru Yoru’ for the very first time after the signature numbers, ‘Anosa’ and ‘Escape,’ and two of their previous digital singles, ‘Future Kousatsu’ and ‘Yasashii Kotoba.’ As it’s a cheerful, up-beat song which used to be a familiar number in its original English lyrics now born into a brand new song to mark a brand new start, the audience naturally moved to the beat and listened in the new lyrics of a special message. Isaac expressed his gratitude for having the chance to continue on with the 10-month live series and for all the support that many bands have shown them, especially ROOTLESS who invited Hemenway to tour with them and also joined the artist lineup for the live on 4/2. The live series will continue on with their 4th live at shibuya eggman on 5/2.

On 4/24, the release day of “Hanafuru Yoru,” Hemenway will be live on Ustream for “Hemenway Street Vol.9” with Shu Watanabe, a special guest who has been a close friend to all the members also has written a recommendation comment for the new song.
