MEGAMASSO fans will be disappointed to know that the band will be taking a break, but don’t worry; they’ll be back.
Earlier this month, MEGAMASSO announced their plans to take a 1-year hiatus in order to recharge, focus on individual activities, and come back even better than before. The “hibernation period” kicks off after their 9th anniversary show on December 16th. Read the official announcement and comment below (translated by yours truly):
An Important Announcement from MEGAMASSO
Following our 9th anniversary performance on December 16th at Shinjuku ReNY,
MEGAMASSO will take a “slightly long hibernation period” of about 1 year to recharge.
This decision was the result of discussions among members
in which we thought about challenging ourselves with more solo activities
in order to make MEGAMASSO an even more wonderful band.
We’ve decided to take a bit of a long rest in order to improve.
We will notify you of our return on our Mobile FC and OHP when the time comes.
Please continue to give MEGAMASSO your support.
Below is a comment from the members:
“We’re sorry that the news of our recharging period is so sudden.
We’ve been talking about this recharging period among the 3 of us for several months now.
There are a lot of reasons. We don’t just want to keep playing,
we want to make even better music! That’s why this “slightly long hibernation period” should be looked at as something for the better.
We’ll continue to improve ourselves and our music until the 9th anniversary show on December 16th with no negative thoughts.
We want you to help us develop MEGAMASSO’s world even more at our shows.
Please continue to give us your support.”
