A while ago, it went up on UNDER CODE that on March 20th, the first one-man live of hurts would be their final live with the current members.
Well, finally that puzzle has been solved in their interview in Shoxx of 2008.

The band is hurts, who will release two concept maxi-singles on February 6th, entitled “Akuma no shi -ketsumei-” and “Akuma no shi -hangyaku-.” These releases are the so-called “last releases” for the current members, but what does that mean? And after this, what sort of development are they thinking about? At their first one-man on March 20th at Holiday Shinjuku, since they will pause activities, we want to steadily observe the attitude of these “new” men afterward.
Well, what kind of meaning does the announcement have that this work is the last for the current members?
Hina: Although we’ll be entering into an activity pause as of the one-man on March 20th, we plan to return to return to this current state of progress which we’ll be leaving behind like this, and so this becomes the “current members’ last.”
Maki: We’re going to make our change of attitude even more powerful.
Because of that, you announced a best album as well, in which you’ll put together the activity of these four members up until now, right?
Mukku: It’s sort of like drawing a line between then and now.
Does the one-man have that sort of feeling, too?
Hina: Although it seems to suggest that, I think that with the concept of “the Devil’s words,” we’ll be able to have the best show possible.
When will your new “form” come alive?
Hina: At the earliest time we come to an agreement about it we want to return, so I hope everyone will anticipate it.
