We have some unexpected and unfortunate news from AvelCain, who we interviewed just two months ago.
AvelCain will disband on July 27th, 2016. There has been no explanation regarding the cause of their disbandment. Read the official announcement below, including comments from each member (translated by yours truly):
An Announcement from AvelCain
Thank you for your continuous support for AvelCain.
AvelCain will disband following our 7/27 show at Nagoya Diamond Hall.
We’d like to thank all fans and staff for your support over these past 4 years.
Below are comments from each member.
4 years have already passed since AvelCain was born. In that time, I’ve met and parted with many people. We’ve laughed together, I’ve cried alone, I’ve made a lot of people angry and been hurt because of it; but I’ve also met a lot of people I respect. No one ever thought we’d blossom this much.
In the language of flowers, “AvelCain” would surely mean “an expanse of love.”
Thank you for everything.
On July 27, 2016,
AvelCain will disband at our one-man show at Nagoya Diamond Hall.
It’s the same venue where the band who inspired me to play music had their own disbandment show.
I’m grateful that my dream of disbanding at that very same venue will come true.
Our time as AvelCain may have been unfortunately short, but everywhere we went and played was all thanks to our fans.
I feel like I have no way to repay you, though.
I’ll start expressing the depth of my gratitude to you on stage.
I’ll make the end of my music career a brilliant one.
Abel and Cain, distorted.
I’m sorry for this sad news,
and thank you for all of your support.
It was all thanks to our friends and you that we were able to make it this far.
We’ve laughed together, and we’ve cried together.
The memories I have of us seem like they happened just yesterday.
I’ve run into some trials and tribulations along the way,
but in the end, I’m glad that I was AvelCain’s “Zen.”
I’ll give my all to being that Zen until the very end.
Thank you for loving me,
and for showing me what love is.
I’m sorry I couldn’t fulfill all of our dreams with you.
I’m known for being a bit self-centered, but please listen to one last selfish request.
We only have 4 months left.
We have one last dream.
Until our final show at Nagoya Diamond Hall,
please continue to love AvelCain.
I love all of your smiles.
7/27 at Nagoya Diamond Hall will be the end.
AvelCain’s music will live on forever.
It hasn’t been that much time, but I’ll make sure my gratitude reaches
our fans that were born in the same age as us and have lived on in the same age as us.
Don’t cry…I was so happy…
While the future plans of most members are undecided yet, guitarist Kaede has confirmed that he will end his music career after AvelCain’s disbandment.
Their final show will take place on July 27th, 2016 at Nagoya Diamond Hall. Details are still TBA, but we’ll let you know as soon as we know.
In addition, they’ll be releasing two venue-limited singles at some of their upcoming one-mans. 「六道輪廻」 (Rokudou Rinne) will be released on May 25th, and 「輪廻転生」 (Rinne Tenshou) will be released at their Akasaka BLITZ one-man on June 23rd.
