Very sad news for fans of Capella today–they have announced that they will be disbanding this June after a last one-man show. The news was announced at an event a few days prior, and now has been officially posted on their website, along with a comment from each member.
This may come as a shock to fans, given how active they have been recently. Capella had just released their first full album this past August and have been touring quite a bit since then. It is a shame that they are disbanding so soon after their first album. Capella intends to finish all of the tour dates scheduled as of now, all the way through their final one-man in June. The announcement of their breakup and the members’ comments can be read below.
Thank you for your ongoing support of Capella.
We apologize, but just as announced at our organized event a few days prior,
after much deliberation among the members, Capella have decided to disband after a final one-man live in June 2014.
We apologize deeply for causing such consternation among our supportive fans and affiliates.
Capella will be putting all our might into bringing our music in what time we have left until the end.
Please give us all the support you can in these few remaining months.
First, I’m sorry things have come to such a disappointing end.
A band is a perishable thing, and when you put a few people with strong wills together, flaws like this are bound to come up.
When some of our members said they wanted to quit or follow a different path, I was in no position to take responsibility for their lives, and I couldn’t tell them to suck it up and deal with it.
I’ve done a lot of thinking about this.
But more than anything, I’m happy I got to spend some percent of my life in Capella with everyone, having some great times.
I’m sure June will come before we know it, but please cheer us on till the very end.
Let’s do our best for these few months so Capella leaves no regrets behind.
Gt. Harashima Tsuyoshi
Sorry it turned out like this. It’s not that we got caught in the past, Capella decided this while thinking about what’s next for us.
The time I spent with Capella was really important to me, and I loved it.
I don’t think that’s going to change now.
I want to put everything I’ve got into making sure the Capella I love stays this pretty until the very last instant, so I hope you’ll watch over us.
Capella was a band that had a lot of “firsts.”
We might’ve been fumbling around, but we still took on plenty of challenges, and saw a world we’d never seen before.
I believe wholeheartedly that it was good that the four of us got together, and more than anything I’m happy we got to spend this time together.
But I want to take on even more challenges in the future, so I’m starting down a new path.
We might’ve announced the end, but that doesn’t mean it’s over yet.
Since it’s us four behind it, I’m sure I’m gonna enjoy all the music we make until the end,
so let’s all enjoy Capella just a little more while we can.
I want to make sure that Capella leaves behind a legacy that people will remember long after we break up.
Let’s be stellar till the very end. Make us proud.
Capella will be keeping busy until the end. They have a lot of shows coming up over the next few months, so be sure to see them if you are a fan, to say your last goodbyes. Not many details have been released about their final one-man so far. Even the date is not yet confirmed, it is only listed as taking place in June. There will also be one just before it, in May. More details will be released later about their last two one-mans. Catch them on the dates listed below.
