Not too long ago, Sadie announced that they will be going on a hiatus, and we’re here to give you some updates on the band! First, here’s a translation of the official announcement posted onto the band’s website. The announcement briefly cites that band’s reasoning for the hiatus. (Translation brought to you by Shannon of S-T.net):
We sincerely thank you for your continuous support for Sadie.
We have a very important announcement for you.
Following our 2015.09.21 “Zepp Tokyo” performance,
Sadie will go on hiatus.
Sadie has recklessly played on for 10 years without stopping even once.
Because of that, a lot of things have built up,
and there are also a lot of things we’ve let slip away.
At the turning point of our 10th anniversary, we will come to a complete standstill.
We will use this as an opportunity to find both ourselves and our music again
in order to take one step closer towards a new Sadie.
These are the reasons for the decision to pause all band activities.
Sadie is a band that has truly been supported by a lot of people in these past 10 years.
We are so full of gratitude for those of you who have supported us more than anyone, more than words can express.
This announcement is a selfish one,
but we offer our sincerest apologies to our supportive fans
for causing such inconvenience and worry.
We hope that you’ll be able to accept this decision that we’ve worried about over and over.
This news has been sudden,
but we will continue with activities until 9.21 with our best efforts.
Please continue to give us your support.
All Members and Staff of Sadie
