Mark your calendars, NICO fans! According to natalie.mu
, NICO Touches the Walls will be releasing their 4th album... this year! Yes, you read correctly, 2011 - this year, on 7th December
. The album is entitled 「HUMANIA」 and the a promo pic was also posted (see above)
Now, it was only in April we saw
the release of 「PASSENGER」 but since then, NICO has going head strong performing for their many tour dates and even giving us single releases from 「手をたたけ」 - (Te wo Tatake), which was used as the theme song for LISMO's commercial. Not forgetting 「Endless roll」, which was released as a digital single through RecoChoku - whilst it was also used as the theme song for the movie 「スイッチを押すとき」 (SWITCH o osu toki). Their next release is said to be a song called 「バイシクル」 (Bicycle), is said to be used for the up and coming drama 「11人もいる！」 (11-Nin mo iru!). Have I lost you yet?
Not only have NICO been very busy with all these releases and have decided to announce their 4th album release. It seems that NICO will be doing yet another tour next year entitled "NICO Touches the Walls TOUR2012 "HUMANIA" ". Check out the dates on their website: http://www.nicotouchesthewalls.com/live/
The tracklist for 「HUMANIA」 has yet to be announced, but I'm sure we'll be waiting eagerly for it!
My first reaction~ OMFG! O_O. Can you believe they're releasing a new album already! They only released one in April and already they have their 4th album released - in the same year!
I had a feeling they were going to release an album some time next year with all the releases they've been doing lately, but OMIGOSH - to now know it's this year and the date being very close to Christmas is just.... I have no words. My mind is just blown by this information! XD
I have a feeling Sakkan did some writing for this album (not just for 'Endless roll')~ I'm looking forward to hearing more of his composition work~ ;D
Now on the promo photo. Micchan got his hair cut alittle more, I can tell, and he's spicing up his primary coloured blazer now~ oh, how I love him in red! <3 XD. Furu-kun dyed his hair... OMG! I saw it dyed from the picture in the staff diary... but still~ to know he's promoting the new album with it~~~! XD Sakkan and Sho-san lookin' good as always~ <333 ;DDD
OMG. You do not know how excited I am right now. >o<
