[Message from unit asia, Southeast Asian Tour 2012]
 Time flies and it’s now more than 3 years since unit asia performed its first Southeast Asian Tour in 2008 (organized by The Japan Foundation).
 "unit asia" was originally a “limited time only” ensemble that was formed for this month-long tour but because the sound that evolved(deepened) with each successive performance and the close bond that developed between the members despite cultural and linguistic differences, we decided to continue making music together after the Tour
 Having further strengthened our rapport since then through numerous performances in Japan, a Middle-East Tour, and the recording of a new album, “Smile for You” it gives us great joy to be able to embark on this 2nd Southeast Asian Tour this time round.
 Of the 5 cities and 4 countries on this upcoming Tour, 3 of them (Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Manila) are places of which we have fond memories, having visited them during the previous round.
 And everyone is also excited at the prospect of performing for the very first time in Vietnam (Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh) .
 Our plan it to present a “New unit asia” to audiences who’ve been to our previous concerts that’s advanced further ahead along the evolutionary scale, and a “refreshing new excitement” to those who’ll be hearing us for the very first time.

 We are truly looking forward to seeing all of your wonderful smiles ! Let’s meet up at the concert !
