TAKA’s Comment

I’m sorry about surprising you with this unexpected announcement.
This is the decision that we’ve reached after numerous conversations between the members.
I want to enjoy the little time that we have left as the Underneath to it’s utmost potential.
Let’s meet on our last tour.


MASATO’s Comment

Please accept our decision to disband.
I love the band, and the members, however, finally this day as come.
Nevertheless, in order to move forward, the five of us talked together and came to this decision, which I have no regrets about.
To all of you who have believed in us and supported us, I can’t express in words how grateful I am.


TAL’s Commet

Even though two years is a short amount of time, I am truly grateful that I was able to meet all of you.
I’m not sure if we came up with the right answer or not, but I’ll keep searching for what is.
I honestly thank you all for all the love you have given me.


RYO’s Comment

Creation is born out of destruction
This is the best, forward-facing answer that came out of our numerous discussions.
We will push through with all our power [until the end].


MASAKI’s Comment

It’s been about two and a half years since I’ve been active with the band.
It honestly felt like just an instant.
However, I feel that the time I’ve spent has been rich.
I’ve been friends with the other members for more than ten years, and yet we are still able to respect each other.
Being able to have such happiness, is thanks to all of the fans who have been supporting us.
Thank you.
Even though saying farewell makes you lonesome, I feel that there are still many things that I have to do.
At any rate, our last tour will be a hit!
I really want to leave behind a time that in five, or even ten years, will remain unrusted in every one’s hearts.

I’m sorry that I can’t write that well. I wish I could express exactly what I want to…

The end is coming, but before that, there will surely be a beginning.
I’ll be glad if I can see all your smiling faces again.

Thank you.

    this sucks -.-…

    nya, there seems to be a mistake?!

    first: “the Underneath has been active snce January 1st, 2008″
    then: “during our 13 years of activity”

    2008 -> 2010 = 13 years?! @@

  8. Kieru

    That’s a shame. I’ve been a fan since the beginning. These things happen, and I am sure they have their reasons for disbanding. I wish all the guys luck in whatever it is they do afterwards. Good luck on your final tour, boys! We love you!

  9. Jinx

    WHAT THE HELL?! This is a sad sad day. I hope they aren’t retiring from music completely. They all seem to genuinely enjoy performing. I’m in shock right now. Ughhh why?!?!?
