Sad news again… with one of the most popular indie bands of the past year, Villain, which is going to disband. The news has been spread for a few days already thanks to Phantasmagoria (who apparently saw them live), I’ve just waited for a few days for the situation to become clear, but it seems that the band will really disband after their oneman live on June 26th, as CROW MUSIC is not adding any more lives for the band, but everyone should wait for an official announcement to confirm all this.
Other than that, there’s been quite an interesting debate on why the band was disbanding… now quoting Phantasmagoria :
Not sure, but it’s not surprising after what happened recently. Aoi’s girlfriend comes to shows as a fan and stands in second row and makes it obvious that they’re dating (they both wear the same necklaces and rings) and she brags all over her blog that he is hers. A bunch of Japanese fans tore her to pieces on an anonymous bulletin board, and Aoi posted a response in his blog, cutting down the band’s fans in response. Aoi apologizes, his blog is deleted, then a week later they announce their disbandment out of the blue
If this is the actual reason of their disbandment, don’t you think it’s a bit too much ??? Is it forbidden to have a girlfriend when you’re part of a VK band ? This whole thing reminds me of people whining when they learnt Miyavi was getting married…
