    「2012 start」

    Once again: Happy New Year.

    For my New Year’s promises, I could pretty much just reprint the entire last blog by Kazuhiko. To those feeling a little forgetful due to New Years, please do check it again. I feel strongly about my decision of wanting to be even more riotous. I wanna take you higher, everyone. I ask you, I beg of you: let’s do this.

    As for 9mm in 2012, although we were supposedly thinking “we spent all of last year touring, so this year we should just take it easy and write songs……” and whatnot, but before realizing it we’re just announcing more and more shows. (laughs) We’ll be fully operational like always.

    For now I think I’ll just put up our live schedule until March. It’ll be longer than usual, so take your time.

    1/21 (Sat) Akasaka BLITZ
    w) People In The Box

    First show of the year (officially… though we did play on New Years). Above all else, I’m looking forward to our first proper showdown in a while playing alongside People. I think those among our fans who have yet to experience People will be knocked out of their wits, so aside from listening to their CD’s, please do come in completely unprepared. (laughs)

    1/31 (Tue) Hachioji Match Vox

    The return of the MMT 2011 extra edition. For details, please refer to the letter of challenge and our response to it. Of course, 9mm will be batting second like on the tour. We’ll just have to do it.

    2/11 (Sat) Yokohama Arena
    Version 21.1 fourth

    We were invited to do this event arranged by the threesome of the telephones, OGRE YOU ASSHOLE and sakanaction. A gathering of bands from the same generation. When we played with THE BAWDIES at CDJ, we were talking about how we’ll have to go crazy since we were both invited to perform. I’m also happy about getting to see OGRE play live again.

    2/19 (Sun) Saitama Super Arena
    EMI ROCKS 2012

    EMI’s ROCK event. It ought to be dazzling this time around as well. We’ll be announcing more details on this later.

    2/26 (Sun) Makuhari Messe

    A tremendous honor. I think there’s going to be lots of instances of me going “ah man, to think I’m able to see this band play at Makuhari Messe!

    2/29 (Wed) Shibuya O-nest
    nest 15th Anniversary with 9mm~
    w) Meaning/SuiseiNoboAz

    Moving on to O-nest in February after the three consecutive mass meetings. Anniversary with 9mm. I think this’ll be a super hot one. Leap year live!

    3/08 (Thu) Shinjuku LOFT

    Playing alongside HERE. Before the actual show, we’re actually planning on meeting up for dinner and devising strategies for it (laughs). So, I ask that you look forward to it. It’s gonna be no-nonsense~. Hajimetal might be there, too.

    3/22 (Thu) Fukuoka DRUM LOGOS
    3/23 (Fri) Hiroshima CLUB QUATTRO

    We were summoned to join BOOM BOOM SATELLITES’ tour featuring other bands. They previously played on 9mm Day, but this time it’s the other way around. How will BOOM BOOM’s audience react to 9mm? More than anything, I’m happy I’ll get to see them perform on two nights in a row. I’m looking forward to it.

    Phew! That was long! That must’ve been hell for the Twitter-inclined. Thanks for keeping me company.

    And like that, we’ll be plunging onwards towards March. We’re planning on getting started with songwriting from the start of the year. The shows have lots of variety in venue capacities and other bands on the bill. You and us, let’s all get tougher. Let’s go at it with even more gusto than before.

    With that, we’ll be hoping for your support this year, too!!
