Now, another labelmate – lix – is putting an abrupt end to their activities, as well.
There is little to no news on what sparked lix’s decision to take an extended, potentially permanent break. However, their activity has petered off dramatically in recent years, with their most recent release, SICKS PAIN ~SICKS RAIN 2nd press ver.~, dropping almost a full two years ago. lix’s lineup has also been shaken up quite dramatically since their inception, with three of the founding members – vocalist Ryu, guitarist Yasuhiro, and drummer Sho – leaving abruptly in late 2010. Although new vocalist Chihiro and original guitarist Yuu made valiant efforts to stay afloat, enlisting support members whenever needed, lix has been gasping for air for the last few years.
As such, it is sadly not much of a surprise that they have met this end.
Nonetheless, lix will be going out with a real bang, hosting a hell of a farewell event live at Shinsaibashi Club ALIVE! on June 22nd.
