We at S-T have some unfortunate news for Escapism fans: the group has decided to suddenly disband after their upcoming performance at Holiday Shinjuku next Thursday. Here’s the band comment, as translated by Shannon:
Escapism has been together since November 2014, but we regret to inform you that we’ll be disbanding following our performance on 6/25.
One of the biggest reasons for our disbandment is due to musical differences among the members.
It became difficult to continue on, so we held repeated discussions in meetings with the members.
It’s very sudden, but we’ll disband
The members get along really well.
There are probably those who will worry this is due to discord or a dispute, but that’s not the case at all.
We hope you’ll be able to watch over the members as they move onto new activities, session bands, and new bands.
Furthermore, we’ll continue our stamp rally that came with our 2nd CD released on 5/7 「白日夢」.
Though it may be a bit hectic, we ask for our forgiveness.
There’s only a bit of time left until we disband, but the members will face the end with all they’ve got, so please give us your support until the end.
