AIMI Opens Crowd-funded First Album to Overseas Fans!

2016 marked a big year for AIMI with the rebirth of her solo activities. Not since 2014 did we have a physical or digital release of music from AIMI with the dual single releases by Alice in Underground (Love Zon e no Touhi and Party★Zon no Gyakushuu). Finally AIMI in September of 2016, through extremely limited release, brought us “Demo Bootleg #1”. Featuring “cotton” and We-Know”, this was the first taste of AIMI’s new career. Unfortunately Demo Bootleg #2, appearing in April of 2017, was restricted to distribution only at a few live performances, leaving overseas fans yearning for new music but no way to access.

A year after her first single release, AIMI and her staff made the exciting announcement that she would be crowdfunding her first solo Album through Camp-Fire. Funded in only 8 minutes and quickly hitting its first few stretch goals, AIMI’s first album is officially on its way! Unfortunately Camp-Fire is limited to Japanese residents, once again leaving international fans with few options. AIMI and staff however promised to look for a way for overseas fans to contribute. Now in November and with the campaign coming to a close fans were running out of time and hope.

Fortunately today our voices were heard with the announcement that overseas will be able to use the Mirai Mode (a service from Tokyo Otaku Mode) to contribute to the crowdfunded Album!

COMMENTS from AIMI
When I was a vocalist of STEREOPONY, I’ve been abroad as concert tours. At that time I was so impressed there were many fans supported me even in foreign countries. Since then I’ve been thinking to reach everyone in any countries as I do for fans in Japan.
I can start to record my first solo album because I made my crowd funding project success in Japan. However, only people in Japan could join that crowd funding system I first used. Now I start the same project with Tokyo Mirai Mode because I really want to deliver my album to every single person who supports me, no matter where they live. The fund raised through this project is for the cost of producing/recording the album, the fee of delivery and translation, and any other operating costs. Thank you for your support and I really appreciate that.
