It’s curtains for The Candy Spooky Theater – but only until they’re ready for the next act.
Unfortunately, for undisclosed reasons, The Candy Spooky Theater is taking a pause for a set period of time, which will begin after their June 6th performance at Takadanobaba AREA‘s GATE OF CHAOS SPECIAL. All their activity until then will go as planned, and they will announce their return from this pause on their website and social media accounts.
If there is one upside to this announcement, it’s that, from the looks of it, the hiatus will have a definite end, which hopefully is assurance that this is not one of those vague activity pauses from which a band never recovers.
The Candy Spooky Theater had some truly terrible luck last year, when their hotly anticipated appearance at Tainted Reality’s Pandæmonium Tour was abruptly canceled when the band was turned away at the border. The unfortunate announcement came only two days after the scheduled release date of their special tour-limited single, Creepscene, their first release in three years.
This year, their activity so far has been rather sparse, with less than a handful of lives scheduled between January and June. It may be a good thing, then, for the band to pause, reflect, and reorient themselves for the latter half of 2014 and beginning of 2015.
[2014/03/27 Update] Important Annoucement
Following our performance on June 6th, 2014, THE CANDY SPOOKY THEATER will be putting all activities on hold for a definite hiatus.
Our schedule for 2014 will be complete after our two planned lives in Tokyo on Tuesday, April 1st and Friday, June 6th.
Information regarding a resumption date will be available on our official website and other sources once one is decided. In the meantime, we ask for your patience.
We apologize for the trouble and are grateful for all your support.
