This season has started with many triumphs and setbacks for Visual Kei bands and fans alike. Unfortunately, today we have another setback to announce for Veled.
Fans will remember Veled’s guitarist Tatsu announced he would be leaving the band back in November 2013, and since then things simply have gone from bad to worse.
Veled’s guitarist, Icchi, announced on his Ameblo in mid-December that after their upcoming Sponsored live on March 26th, the band will be saying farewell and goodbye… for now. Our translator, Shannon, has translated the message for Shattered-Tranqulity’s readers.
Well, it’s just like we announced at the live today!
Following next year’s 3/26 hosted event, Veled will be disbanding! (◎_◎;)
We thank everyone for the support you have given us until now.
Well, I won’t write anything formal about it right now.
If I wrote a long announcement right now, I’d probably tear up. (>_<)
There are only a few lives left until our last live, but we’d certainly like you to show up to them! (｀_´)ゞ
All of Veled wishes that. (^o^)/
For that reason, please stand by Veled for a little bit longer. (o^^o)
The disbandment does not seem to be the end of the careers of the members, but there have yet to be any announcements that the members will be leaving the industry.
But before thinking of the members in the far-off future, there are two more opportunities for fans to see Veled before they disband. Their remaining schedule has been put below, so if you’re a fan in the Tokyo area, make sure that you attend and support your favorite band.
