9GOATS BLACK OUT have announced that they will be disbanding this coming spring.

The following announcement was posted on the band’s OHP:

An Announcement regarding the end of our activities

To everyone that has been supporting 9GOATS BLACK OUT,

At the beginning of spring, 2013, 9GOATS BLACK OUT will be ending their activities, and therefore disbanding.

Before the end of the year, we will be releasing a new album, and in the beginning of 2013, will be having oneman lives in Tokyo, Nagoya, and Osaka. From there we will have our last live, and put an end to our activities.

The album details are still undecided, but when the time comes we will make an announcement about the album as well as the details to the other events.

In the five or so years we’ve been together, we’ve been able to create a sound that’s unique to 9GOATS BLACK OUT, and we’re grateful to everyone who has grown to love our way of seeing the world.

As the members intend to put their feelings into the final release, please understand that they will not be replying to any questions or comments.

We hope that you will continue to support 9GOATS BLACK OUT to the end.

The dates for their Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka tour, as well as their last live are as follows:

January 5th @ Osaka MUSE
January 6th @ Nagoya E.L.L.
January 12th @ Meguro Rock Maykan

February 9th @ Akasaka BLITZ

    Dammit, I didn’t need to hear this today. I’m going to miss them.

    Oh wow, this is really really terrible. I loved them from the beginning, adored their first mini-album, bought every CD I could find, enjoyed each and every single song they made… and now this. Wow, I’m just… overwhelmed ._. And not in a good way.
    The only thing I hope is that the members continue making music, somehow. I’m quite positive they will.
    As yuzu already said, I’ll miss them. A lot. They’ve been my favourite band for the past few years.

    I cant believe their disbanding, 9GOATS BLACK OUT are and always will be my favorite band. I love them so much. Their music is absolutely amazing. I cant stop crying. .____.

  7. I can't even think up of a snarky nickname...

    It’s… not hitting me yet. Maybe it’s the fact that I found out via Internet. I just don’t want to believe it. I love Visual Kei, but there’s a lot of crap/not-to-your-taste bands. But, if you look hard enough, you find gems (as overused that word is). 9GOATS is that gem to me. I don’t want to believe it.

    I adore every single song they wrote. Literally (granted, I like some more than others, but I love ALL of them). There’s not many bands like that. As much as I want to know why they are disbanding, it’s not my position to bitch and moan on random comment sections.

    I’ll miss you guys. Seriously… I know they can’t read this, but I can’t thank them enough for their wonderful music. I’ll go cry out my sorrow while blasting 9GOATS in my eardrums now…

    Well I read all the comments above and I think everything is said. I’m sad, don’t like this news and hope to see them again in a new band.

    :( This news is so upsetting. They’re one of the few visual-kei bands that I still follow. I haven’t been impressed with many of the bands coming out of the visual-kei genre in recent years, but 9GOATS BLACK OUT is one of the bands that have continued to stand out to me. So sad to see them go.

    T-T Don’t know what to say, it’s too much of disbanding these days!
