Hey everyone in YouTube land. Happy New Year!
How is everyone? Today I've got a few announcements to make.
My band, nothing ever lasts, now has an official catch phrase to portray our music.
Live for the day. Live for the music. Nothing ever lasts
Enjoy the "now," enjoy the music, nothing ever lasts.
This is something that has been a part of the band for a long time, but we never put it in words.
And since it's the New Year, we decided to announce this.
Treasuring and living in the moment is something we have always focused on
Especially when we are on stage, we treat every moment as if it may be our last, and we try to help our audience enjoy the "now" just as we do.
And we'll continue to perform with the same mentality, so everyone, please come and enjoy the moment with us at our shows!
Live for the day. Live for the music. Nothing ever lasts.
By the way, our next show is on Jan. 17th at Club Que in Shimokitazawa.
And we're the headlining act of the night! If you have time, please stop by and help us start off 2012 right!
And right after that, n.e.l. party, a community made up of people who became friends after coming to our shows,
will be holding their first event, Sound of Music, on Jan. 22nd at Under Deer Lounge in Shibuya.
This event is really gonna be fun. With all types of artists, from DJs, to dancers, painters, traditional music, bands...
It's a rare opportunity to enjoy music in all kinds of forms at the same event, so if you're interested come by!
In 2012, nothing ever lasts will be focusing primarily on social media: YouTube, facebook, twitter, etc.
So for our YouTube channel, we will be refining it and looking for ways to make it more entertaining.
Of course we will have music videos, live performances, lyric videos, etc.
With member interviews, etc.
Also, a new video series focused on helping independent musicians called "DIY Musician 101: Introduction to DIY"
Basically, in the current music industry, signing with a major label isn't really important anymore. On the contrary, it actually hurts some artists in the long run.
And since we live in a world with facebook, YouTube, etc, where it has never been easier to self-promote, I say we should just do it ourselves!
I'll be introducing various services created to help DIY musicians.
I'm sure most of you know, but I moved my cover videos to a new channel, nelcovers.
I'm planning to constantly update it with new cover videos, so subscribe and request cover songs!
And finally, a channel I made a while ago for my video blogs, neltalks. Check it out.
And I'm sure most of you know, but most of nothing ever lasts' announcements, etc will be made through our facebook fan page, so "like" it!
And if you're not on facebook yet, register already!
It seems like I say this every year, but this time I mean it. 2012 is going to be amazing for nothing ever lasts.
There are many huge announcements I want to make, but can't because I'm not allowed to talk about them yet.
So be prepared! We're going to have a solo show, bunch of events, an acoustic show, tour Japan...
And of course, a huge announcement. Hopefully I can tell you guys by Feb. or Mar.
Anyway, subscribe to my other channels and please keep supporting nothing ever lasts!
2012 is going to be a huge year for us, so please keep watching and listening! Let's enjoy the moments we have as much as we can.
Live for the day. Live for the music. Nothing ever lasts.
Let's make 2012 an awesome year!
