The following announcement was posted on SuG’s OHP:
After our performance on December 29th at Yoyogi Kyougijou Daini Taikukan, SuG Oneman Show 2012 “This iz 0″, we will be going on hiatus.
As a result of numerous discussions between both the members and staff, we have decided that in order for SuG to continue activities, and in best interest of the members, PS COMPANY, and the future of SUG, that we should restart under new conditions. Therefore, an activity pause is necessary, as well as SuG’s separation from PS COMPANY.
We believe that this is the best outcome for the future of SuG.
Until we start activites again, the members will each focus ont heir own work, but will improve and return.
From our start on January 12th, 2007, up until now, we were able to continue as SuG for six years because of the support from PS COMPANY, all of our fans, and those connected to the band.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us.
SuG (Takeru . masato . yuji . Chiyu . shinpei)

This was a result of numerous discussions and as SuG wishes to spread their viewpoint, and go back to their origin, from a company standpoint we will respect their decision, and will continue to support their new path with all of our heart.
To all the fans and those connected to the band, thank you for your warm support and words of encouragement.
