Felt all warm and fuzzy this very cold December morning when I saw this post - http://www.allureofsound.com/?p=24019 ! That’s right, our video to Left Is Best is online in all it’s glory including the extreme close up of my head!!!
Just when I thought I couldn’t take anymore excitement I was sent a feedback report on our remixes from all sorts of DJ legends.. (from Faithless to Mark Knight) and we are getting incredible support in the clubs! All the remixes can now be accessed from the ‘Left Is Best Remixes’ tab on our Arkarna facebook page - http://www.facebook.com/ArkarnaOfficial

It hasn’t been the best of weeks to be honest… if you can relate to the idea that the world moves in ways that you can only wish you had more control over you’ll know what i mean…
Still, even with being ill i’ve carried on regardless, working from my bed wrapped in a duvet and supported by pillows cos as much as you wish it would stop temporarily, the world carries on with or without you!
I dunno what it is but February to me is just one of months where things are made to go wrong, It’s jinxed, cursed. Take Valentines day for example, a day specifically designed to dampen the spirits of anyone who is single whilst others relish in the fact they are in a relationship… just doesn’t seem right does it?
Yesterday confirmed my theory that February is without doubt the worst month of the year when i stupidly slipped going down the stairs at home and landed back first onto the last step. laying there in pain and being unable to move it was a moment of pure irony when i remembered a song i posted on twitter earlier in the week…
‘Life ain’t always a bed of roses, you gotta get up, get up, get over it, be strong’
So for anyone else like me suffering from February blues, this song is for you…
For those of you who don’t already know… Why don’t you know? How could you possibly forget!? Shame on you :p
It’s Ollie’s birthday today! and we thought it only seemed right that as we can’t be there to spend it with you guys we could all share a smile and a giggle instead :) so here it is, the behind the scenes bits you’re never sposed to see!
Look out for some big website changes at arkarna.net cos soon you guys are gonna have your own profiles and send personal messages to me and Ollie! What more could you possibly need in life!?
It’s now more important than ever to keep up to date with all the latest Arkarna News and developments and you can do this by subscribing to our news letter at arkarna.net
We’ve been hard at work creating what is to our biggest exclusive peek at the new album so far! For the first time ever you guys are gonna get to hear some of the new tracks in all their finished glory with some extra little surprises thrown in along the way :) so keep your eyes peeled for that too!
That’s all for now guys! We’re now off to get our rave heads on and see Pendulum and Skrillex play tonight!
What have you always wanted to know most about Arkarna?
What was it really like to playing to 30,000 people at Rockin’land?
When can you see the rest of our fruity video for our new single ‘Dead on Arrival!?
How does Matt’s hair stay perfectly in place through-out the entire gig!?

The best questions may even appear in the promo leading up to the release of our new album!
Arkarna’s return to Indonesia for Java Rockin’land 2010
Few words can possibly describe the past few weeks for Arkarna… All we can keep thinking is….
WOW Indonesia really knows how to rock out in style!
Even with all that mud, we hear you guys were actually making the ground shake which is unbelievable! Some of the most dedicated fans actually uploaded pictures of their muddy shoes to Twitter which made me laugh when I got back to my hotel room! :)
I guess on some level we didn’t really know what to expect when we arrived back in Jakarta. Being in a studio for so long it becomes very easy to loose your grip on reality and I frequently found a little voice in my head saying
‘is this real? Is this actually happening?’… I was genuinely expecting to wake at any moment.
It was an absolutely epic night and one that meant the world to all of us, we would have played on that stage all night if we had it our way! You guys were absolutely breathtaking :)
To perform in front of what can only be described as a sea of people is a pretty incredible thing and I cannot tell you guys how fortunate we all felt to see so many smiling face staring back at us.
For me, the highlight of the whole trip had to be getting to finally meet so many of the fans that have been behind us for the past 2 years with their lovely messages of encouragement and support. Without you guys we wouldn’t be making music, you are the driving force behind Arkarna and we love each and everyone of you with all our hearts. For as long as you’re all there to go crazy for us we’ll be there to be going even crazier for you ;)
I think for us it’s still sinking in to be honest, but one thing’s for sure,
ARKARNA OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCE THEY WILL PLAY @JAVAROCKINGLAND 2010!
The rumors you’ve heard are true…
ARKARNA ARE EXCITED TO OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCE THAT…
We will be playing Java Rockin’ Land Fest 2010 October 9th !
We’re lined up to play along side the Smashing Pumpkins, Stereophonics, Dashboard Confessional, Slank and many more great acts this year but none have been more anticipated than the return of the one and only Arkarna!
The Arkarna sound has never been bigger and the timing has never been better! Anyone lucky enough to see the show will be amongst the first people in the world to see the new line up, hear the hit songs they know and love as well as brand new ones from the long awaited new album!
Ollie and Matt have been back in the studio for over a year now, finely crafting what is set to be Arkarna’s greatest achievement and the time has come to finally share it with you all.
We’re also told that this will be the very first time an event of this size is being streamed online in luxurious High Definition. It’ll be so clear you’ll be able to see the sweat before it hits the stage floor ;)
Ollie and Matt’s personal touch means that fans can now tweet the tracks they most want to hear played at the festival on Twitter!
So what are you waiting for!? Get online now and let the guys know what songs you wanna hear them play cos Ollie and Matt personally read through each and every request!
“Indonesia has been like a second home to us and I can’t wait to come back. Thanks for supporting us and for all your lovely comments on our new video - Dead on Arrival. I’ll be there in a minute, put the kettle on! Ollie :-) Xx”
“We can’t wait to see you guys goin crazy our there, this is it! this is what you’ve all been waiting for and what we’ve all been working so hard on for you guys to enjoy. I wanna thank all the fans we chat to everyday for constantly reminding us of what it’s all about! See you in October guys! :) ~xMx~”
Everyone at Arkarna would like to thank Peter F Gontha, Paul Dankmeyer, Dewi Gontha – Sulisto, Januar Chandra and everyone at Java Festival Production for making such a fantastic event possible.
