Naryan would like to thank everyone for the year 2011. It was great year for us. We released our first single and visited many great stages with great audiences.
In year 2012 Naryan will continue recordings. Hopefully everything goes as planned and we could release full lenght album until the end of the year.
Naryan wishes happy new year to everybody.

September 15th Naryan, Rain Diary and Iconcrash will play in YO-talo, Tampere. The very next day Naryan, Rain Diary and Shamrain will play in Bar Loose, Helsinki.
Clicking the posters will take you to the Facebook-events for detailed information.
Naryan has parted with Sauli
Sauli will no longer be seen playing keyboards in Naryan. There was nothing dramatic in any way and all happened within an understanding and friendship. Naryan wishes all the best to Sauli.
In September we will have two very special shows. One is held in Tampere and another in Helsinki. Dates are set and more info will be out soon.
Our gig at Vikkula during Tammerfest has changed. Correct date is friday 15th.
As you can see, we added the brand new The Place in My Fears -video (Thank you Aarni). In our YouTube-channel you can also find Tears Have No Name -song with some video clips from the single recording sessions.
At last our The Place in My Fears -single will be out next week. We'll celebrate the release May 18th 2011 at O'Hara's Freehouse, Tampere. There we'll have a special surprise guest player and a new material. CD's can be bought directly from the band and our manager. The celebration continues at Pub Katse, Jyväskylä 20th May.
We have also new web pages and a new music video. Some new gigs added too.
Feel free to comment our pages, video, single or anything...
We've finished all the recordings. And now it's time to mix. We are a bit behind the schedule, but we want the single to be way better than anything we have recorded so far. So, just a little bit of patience and then the single will be out...
Last weekend we also shooted couple of videos of our acoustic songs 'live'. As soon as we get the video material edited, we'll add them to our youtube channel.
At first a glimpse to our recording session. This week is dedicated to drum recording and then everything is recorded. After drums, there's some fine tuning with keyboard tracks and then we are ready to mix the songs.
We have added a whole bunch of new gigs to our calendar. There's couple of acoustic gigs at first and then some full rock shows.
Some might know that Sauli is doing his military service at the moment. But don't worry, We will have a substitute keyboard player while Sauli is away. Tytti from Rain Diary has promised to play the gigs during the Spring.
We are also planning something special for you… As said, our single should be out soon and we might have some special guest players at the releasing party gig. But we'll give more info about that later.
Thanks for the year - looking forward to the next one
Naryan wishes merry Christmas and a happy new year to all fans. We are having a little break from gigging but we are not resting...
This year has been really amazing. We made 17 gigs which all had a great audience. We participated to Radio Rock's Rockstarba competition and made it to the semifinals. There's almost 3000 votes given to Naryan. Thanks for supporting us.
Nonetheless, we try to make year 2011 even better. We will release single in the beginning of the year (probably on February or March) and perhaps an full length album later in 2011. We will have new web pages also. And of course we do more gigs and songs for you.
