With very little explanation and no official OHP statement, Re^ve abruptly announced on March 30th that the band will dissolve on June 14th. The announcement came to light only on guitarist shu’s Ameblog in a very short entry:
Re^ve, which has been active since January 27, 2012,
After the one-man live on June 14, 2014 at Shibuya REX,
The remaining time of two and a half months is short
But please support us until the end.
Luckily, vocalist shigi put his thoughts into his own entry though still provided fans with very little information about the decision. It’s quite possible we won’t ever know the reasons for this disbandment.
I can’t honestly talk about the disbandment; I’m somehow in disbelief myself and told myself to get a grip, but naturally, separating from everyone is a painful thing.
I’m really sorry to everyone who’s supported us.
I’ll sing at the remaining lives with all my might, so please stay with me just a little longer.
May we have no regrets.
Reach for the stars until the end.
Re^ve has few lives remaining in the period between now and their final show in June. You’ll be able to catch them on stage in Shibuya or Ikebukuro at four shows before they disband.
