More unfortunate news guys, VK darlings SCREW will be moving on after this year. The band will break up after their November show at TSUTAYA O_EAST. Here are the member’s comments, translated by S-T’s Ernie.
This is a message from SCREW.
We will be closing the curtain on our band activities.
In these 10 years,
Many purple flowers have bloomed,
And much purple rain has fallen.
Without stopping, SCREW will be playing once more because of you who are reading this now.
There is only half a year left, but until the moment where we finish activities please continue to watch over us.
SCREW will break up after November 1st.
We are sorry to break this news to you so suddenly.
For ten years, we endured every obstacle.
Even as the years went on, we thought we could continue.
The courage to overcome difficulty, and then the fear of stopping.
Honestly, the thought of doing so was always in our minds somewhere.
As for SCREW’s musical activities, please support us a little while longer.
As for me, I was happy being SCREW’s guitarist.
Being Kazuki of SCREW for 10 years, meeting a lot of people, and seeing so many smiles and walking this path together.
To the fans, thank you for looking over me until now.
As Kazuki of SCREW, I only have a little longer, but please come along with us on this dream.
Please cheer us on until the end.
On this day, SCREW will end.
I think it’s difficult not keeping to the words we said on stage.
We are here today because of all the people we’ve met who have supported us over the years.
After this live, I will be leaving the stage.
Thank you for all your support until now.
SCREW is my last dream.
The times I spent with everyone made me truly happy.
Although this parting seems a bit too fast.
Until the last day I want to go on living this dream.
I have been moved by all the love I’ve felt from all of you these past ten years.
On 11/1/2016, SCREW will disband.
I’m very sorry for the sudden announcement.
I’ve been Jin of SCREW for ten years but,
Since the beginning of the year we had been discussing the limits of the band.
Thank you for supporting us until now.
We began to lose sight of our goals, and despite our struggles reality began to set in.
We started to think of ourselves outside of SCREW.
We really regret making you sad.
But for every beginning there must be an end. Unfortunately, now is that time.
On our ten year anniversary, the words of encouragement I received from everyone actually made me cry.
A lot of things happened in these 10 years.
It was great to share in everyone’s smiles and tears.
I’m very sorry we can’t look forward to an 11th year.
However, I do not intend to quit music; someday I will be back. I promise.
Please come cheer us on until our last show at TSUTAYA O EAST.
We’ll return your feelings one more time!
Thank you for these 10 years. I am very grateful to everyone.
I love SCREW.
