Street Team Recruiting

Hi this is Tak from IMARI TONES.

We are now preparing for new recording.
(See this blog I just posted.)


This email is for those who registered as "Street Team" at our Reverbnation mailing list.

Though Reverbnation has "Street Team" system, we have not been using it so much until now.

But now we think it's time to start something.
Because in this situation of today's music business, putting effort in internet marketing is very important.
As you see we are just a small band from Japan. So self advertising effort is inevitable at this phase of career and we know it works. I myself have put a lot of time to do this "Internet Advertising" like MySpace, Purevolume and imeem. So we want you to help us with some of these.

We want to make this street team mission more like a personal relationship between you and us. It's not like the band and its street team, but we ARE a team working together.
So we want you to work with us together on the internet and real world.

For those who help us, as a compensation, we want to share our music together, for totally free.
When we make music, when some songs are done, sometimes we share the song files just mixed with our close friends. And say "Hey, we just mixed these songs. What do you think?"
While we want some opinion and feedback from them, it's also our joy to share those music with our friends.

So, we want you guys to be our friends.

The tasks we are thinking are;
*Creating IMARi ToNES street team MySpace and imeem
*Recruiting new fans on Facebook
*Recruiting new fans on Purevolume
and so on.

Please reply this email or send email to if you are willing to work with us. And let's talk about what we can do.
It's not a hard job. Just give us a little bit of your time. And if each of you help us a little bit, it will be a big power just like "Genki Dama" (Do you like Dragon Ball?).

Hope we will hear from you and we are looking forward to working with you.

New Recording Blueprint

Hi, this is Tak from IMARI TONES.

After we came back from the USA tour in April 2009, next thing we did is to plan a new recording.
We could plan another tour, we could plan joining some festival, we could plan a new marketing scheme, but we thought we have to create another record first.

Why? Because the Lord gave us some new ideas!
We know we should create More Christian, More Beautiful, More Rockn'Roll album.

So we want you to know what we are working on now.

Here is the blueprint.

"God Rocks" (Temporary Title)

1. Testimony
2. Precious
3. A Girl in the Mirror
4. Oriental Worship
5. One on One
6. I Want a Revival

7. God Kids
8. The Wandering Savior
9. Simple
10. A Bow and an Arrow
11. Love is to do something no one dares to do
12. Forget

13. Faith Rider

It looks good, doesn't it?
We are now doing reharsals hard.
We are going to start recording as soon as we're ready and we expect the completion early next year (2010), before Spring.
That's when we are going to start our full-scale attack!

We can't wait to share these songs with you all!!
