-IMPORTANT- Summer Live Tour Tickets

Published on April 7, 2012, by in Uncategorized.

First of all, I’m happy to announce that we will be able to stay in Japan for the summer and celebrate the 2nd anniversary of w-inds. worldwide. This means we also will be able to help people apply for tickets to this year’s summer tour.

HOWEVER!

w-inds. is under some time constraints this year for various reasons and the deadline for applying for tickets will be in late APRIL and payment will be around then, too. If you can commit to paying for these shows at that time, we can help you apply.

We don’t have all the details yet, but we’d like to ask that all fans interested in going to a w-inds. concert this summer send an e-mail to tickets@windsworldwide.com IMMEDIATELY.

Thanks for your cooperation.

-Ash

w-inds. worldwide International Postcard Project 2012!

Published on April 3, 2012, by in Uncategorized.

UPDATE: In order to give people more time to prepare and send in postcards, we’ve decided to change the send-by date to JUNE 30, 2012.

For the past few years w-inds. worldwide has done an annual letter writing campaign inviting fans all over the world to send us letters for w-inds. which we drop in the present boxes at lives. We think it’s something fans look forward to doing every year, so this year we’d like to do it again, but a little differently.

We’re asking fans to send us postcards from your country. We think this is a cheap, easy way to show off the beautiful scenery from your country and give a short message to w-inds. We’d really love to receive a lot of postcards, so please tell your w-inds. fan friends to send one, too! We know that many fans from different countries do their own projects, but we would like everyone to participate in ours, too. Let’s see how many postcards we can get!

This is also a good chance to send a gentle reminder that there are still people waiting for an international FC.

You can send as many postcards as you like. If you wish to address a member individually, that’s fine, but all postcards will go together into the w-inds. present box. We will not make any special exceptions.

We don’t want to list our address publicly, so if you’d like to participate, please send and e-mail to staff@windsworldwide.com asking for the address and we’ll give it to you right away.

Since postcards typically take longer to reach their destinations than letters, you must send out your postcard by MAY 1ST, 2012. [UPDATE: JUNE 30, 2012]

**Disclaimer**

-As postcards are unprotected from the weather, please don’t get upset if your postcard becomes damaged in any way. If you’re worried about this, you are free to send the postcard inside an envelope and we’ll take it out when we receive it.

-We are not to blame if your postcard gets lost in the mail.

-We reserve the right to reject any postcards which we deem offensive or inappropriate.

“FLY HIGH” Single Giveaway!

Published on March 5, 2012, by in releases.

We know that many people are disappointed by the apparent delay in the selling of FLY HIGH in iTunes stores outside Japan. Many of you cannot afford the price of the album plus the international shipping fees and were looking forward to being able to support w-inds. by purchasing the songs online. While we have no hand in fixing the situation, we at least want to give some fans the chance to hold a physical copy of the single in their hands.

We had the fortune of going to a few of the release events w-inds. held in order to promote FLY HIGH here in Japan. As we needed some of the special tickets inside the singles to attend the events, we have three extra copies of the single only opened to retrieve the special ticket.

Starting tomorrow (March 6th) at 1pm Japan time, we will tweet a trivia question on the w-inds. worldwide twitter account (@windsworldwide) once every Tuesday for the next 3 weeks. The first week will be Limited Edition A, next Limited Edition B, then finally Limited Edition C. The first person each time to answer our questions correctly will get the CD sent to them free of charge. We will tweet the winner each week and ask them to send us their personal information. Please read and understand the following rules:

***RULES***

*You must live outside of Japan.
*One person is only allowed to win one time.
*All decisions are final. You are bound to the edition that you win and you cannot trade for another.
*Your twitter account must be made public or we will not be able to see your response to us.
*You must be following the w-inds. worldwide twitter account so we can send you direct messages.  

In the event that the songs are eventually put on iTunes, we hope that you will indeed purchase the songs to support w-inds.

We are trying our best to make the most difficult questions we can think of, so get your google muscles ready!

Limited Edition A

1. [Disc 1] FLY HIGH
2. [Disc 1] Put your hands up!!!
3. [Disc 1] FLY HIGH (Instrumental)
4. [Disc 1] Put your hands up!!! (Instrumental)
5. [Disc 2] FLY HIGH (MUSIC VIDEO)

Limited Edition B
