D'espairsRay officially disbands

“The dream we’d painted as D’espairsRay has come to an abrupt end.”
Karyu

As of June 15, 2011, D’espairsRay, who had been on indefinite hiatus since last fall due to severe problems with Hizumi’s voice and health, has officially disbanded.

According to very heartfelt messages from the members on the OHP, with no sign of Hizumi’s condition improving, the band has decided there is no choice but to let this be the natural end of D’espairsRay.

Due to the circumstances, there will be no farewell concert or tour. The band thanks all their fans for their endless support and asks for their forgiveness in this most unfortunate of conclusions.

More details, translations to come later.

    So…. that’s the end of D’espairsRay… Totally didn’t see that coming but I’m not that surprised either… I should be sad but I rather take the disbandment than years of hope with the hiatus. I just hope they’ll update us with Hizumi after this. Love You. Always.

    I hope that Hizumis will be ok some day (of course as soon as possible)
    Best wishes to Hizumi and the others of D’espairsRay.

    I pretty much saw this coming. It makes me sad but if it has to do with Hizumi’s health then there’s really no avoiding it. Here’s hoping he makes a quick and full recovery.

    OMGOMGOMGOMG NOOOO. This is horrible! TAT
    I have been hoping Hizumi would recover. This is just so heavy. I don’t know how to handle this rn.

    I saw it coming and of course I’m sad.
    But also I think that was a really rough and hard decision for the band.
    They love D’espairsray so much, everyone of them..
    But the pressure on being on a Hiatus is something Hizumi can’t have right now. Because everyone is waiting for the “we’re back” message. It’s a huge pressure and I think the disbanding lowers the pressure alot so Hizumi can take care of his health which is the MOST important thing at this moment.
    His condition got really worse, so he’s in a special clinic now.
    Of course it makes me really sad, since years it’s my favorite band and I honestly cried my eyes out.
    But also I think it was the better decision.
    AND I ALSO think that when Hizumi is healthy again, they will return to us.
    But now, let’s give him the time he needs to recover.

  12. xsekix

    I have hope, that Hizumi is gonna be better.
    I don’t want believe in this T___T
    I will be always supporting them <3
    I want to cry…

  13. Rissa

    I am really sad by this but I will always have the memories of Taste of Chaos tour! I went there JUST TO SEE D’ESPAIRSRAY! <3

    one of the first few bands that i know of when i first got into jrock.
    I am incredibly, incredibly upset.

  15. Sheila

    I understand the difficulties w/ Hizumi’s voice…but I can’t stop how much this hurts as a fan. I am so sorry I never got to see them live.

    & Also, I’m hoping that Hizumi will be alright, that he is just ok. Not sick, not hurt. Though I can’t imagine what would hurt worse than Despa disbanding.

    All of them, I can’t imagine.

    Ah, I rarely cry over bands but this time, I’m definitely crying.

  16. Juri

    I’m very upset as they were one of the bands that got me into Japanese rock, and I loved them dearly! However, I rather have Hizumi recover than have him continue…I wish all of them good luck!

    And I HIGHLY regret not going to their show when they were in my area.
