BORN Members Comment on Disbandment

born

Many of you were surprised by BORN‘s unexpected disbandment announcement made yesterday. As promised, here are the comments each member made on the breakup (translated by yours truly):

BORN will disband at our Zepp DiverCity show on May 26.
The days we’ve been together have all been days of music, our fans’ support, and laughter.
Nothing can compare to it.
However, in pursuing our dreams, we’ve run into a huge roadblock.
When our ideas of music and art clashed, there were members who couldn’t handle it.
They no longer have the confidence to keep on playing.
I feel responsible for that.
It’s my fault that things are like this.
If I was only a little bit stronger, BORN could continue on.
But sometimes, if you’ve been hurt enough, you can never to back to the way you were before.
It’s difficult to play music in this frame of mind. It’s become almost painfully obvious recently.
Somewhere along the way, I started chasing a different dream for a different BORN,
and after much debate, I admitted to the band members that I wanted to break up.
We decided to do that after everyone’s opinion had been heard out.
Our manager tried to stop us countless times,
but it seemed like disbandment was the only choice for us.
I know what I’m saying is selfish.
The reason I’m telling you this now is because of the very fact that you’re all so important to me.
The members of BORN will walk along different paths, but honestly, I’m not sure if I’ll find something I can love even more than BORN.
That’s what will keep me moving and searching.
The reason I’m standing here today is thanks to K, Ray, TOMO, KIFUMI, and Mio.
The reason I’m standing here today is thanks to our fans.
Thank you for your smiles.
Thank you for your voices.
Thank you for loving BORN.
We’ll keep playing until May 26 at Zepp DiverCity, so please lend us your support until then.

I’m sorry for this sudden news.

When I met the members, I was still this punkish kid.
Our fans were even fewer than the band members.
I’ve learned a lot, experienced a lot, and grew into an adult these past 8 years.

I haven’t processed my feelings fully yet, but one thing I know for sure is that I’m glad I was in this band.
Throughout the bad times, the fights, and the fun times,
I’d say our members have spent the most time talking and laughing together out of all the bands in the world.

When you add fans into the picture, it’s hard to name something that makes me happier.

I think it’s time for the members and myself to take the next step in life.

It’ll be lonely, but I’ll still need your support if I’m going to keep living my own way!

I’ll rock out and give it my all just like I do in BORN, so come see me!

Finally,
Thank you to everyone that has listened to BORN’s music.

I hope you’ll continue to support me!

BORN will disband on May 26.
I’m sorry we weren’t able to keep it together until our 10th anniversary like we’d always planned.
I’ve been in BORN for 8 years, but I’ve known the members for more than 10 years.
We came this far through thick and thin thanks to the support of our fans.
I’m so grateful to you all.
Thank you.

As for the future, I decided a long time ago that BORN would be my last band. I won’t be a part of the music industry anymore.
Please continue to give the other members your support.

We’re going to play all of our shows until our disbandment with all we’ve got so that we won’t leave behind any regrets.
I’ll make sure you leave BORN loving it.

Ray

I’m sorry for upsetting you all with this unexpected news.
These days have been days full of worry and self-doubt.
We decided to break up for the better of the members.

During my time as TOMO of BORN, I’ve laughed, gotten angry, and cried a lot, but they are days I look back on with happiness.
BORN is one of the greatest things that’s happened to me, to the point where I don’t know if I’ll ever find anything better.
Whatever troubles may come my way in the future, I’ll remember my days in BORN and use that power to overcome them.

Music saved me when I was a teenager. It made me want to help other people too. That’s how I started playing music.
I lived for shows, and I think I was actually the one that got more energy and joy out of them than the fans.
Anyone who listened to BORN’s music gave me a reason to keep going.

Our last show as BORN will be on May 26 at Zepp DiverCity.
We’ll give our very best, so please come and support us.
Thank you to all of our fans and staff for supporting us.

TOMO
