TINC had an important announcement today, which was published via their mail magazine about a week ago. Turns out, that their important announcement is another bad one — they’ll be disbanding at their one-man live on April 20th at Takadanobaba AREA.
There’s a bit of a message on the OHP, which I’ll translate as soon as I get a chance (I’m currently in class, so I can’t do it at the moment).
So check back later today for an updated post.
EDIT: Sorry about the delay in this translation (boo to class, haha). This is the notice that’s been posted on the band’s OHP.
To all the people who love TINC,
TINC at their live at Takadanobaba AREA on April 20th, year 20 of the Heisei era, will come to an end and disband.
We have been doing activity to the maximum that we can, and as we have done as much as we possibly could, we will disband. This decision is for the four of us, thinking about the benefits of advancing further forward.
From all the members, our intention is to tackle the time that we have left as TINC without any shyness, and with all our power. Until the end, please watch warmly over the four members.

Well, the “important announcements” lately haven’t been great news, have they.
I can’t say I’m overly surprised, but they were a really fun band, so it’s definitely sad to see them go. The members have not yet updated their blogs with comments on the disbandment (which they may not even do).
EDIT II: I just got home, so I was able to listen to the audio clip that was put up with the message. It’s Sarino talking, but it says basically the same thing as the text message they posted on the site. I thought it would be a lot different, for some reason, but it’s not. Nor does it offer any further insight as to why they’re breaking up.
If you haven’t heard it already, and would like to do so, please feel free to listen here.
