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

Blitz made their debut in 2012, and since then have been operating under the label GOD CHILD RECORDS. The band has recently announced that this partnership has been terminated, and as of the end of May, they are no longer attached to GOD CHILD RECORDS.
However, Blitz fans never fear! The band does not have any plans to end their activities, and will continue on.
The following announcement and member’s comments were posted on Blitz’s official site.
Former fans of Saruin, and perhaps even old fans of the GazettE, may remember that Jabell came together for a single live back in January. The move was an exciting one for die-hard old fans, especially as the members promised more activity (slowly, but surely to come) and even a full album. Of course there were skeptics just as there were believers. After all, lead guitarist and composer Yanagi, and vocalist Maria, have been plagued with chronic medical problems that have made it difficult to continue in the music industry. In fact, the pair’s former band, Saruin, fell apart due to severe vocal impairment on Maria’s part that made it virtually impossible for him to continue singing at the time.
Shortly thereafter, Yanagi fell ill and has since been in and out of the hospital regularly for stays and surgeries, to this day. The guitarist rarely updates his blog because of his lifestyle, but recently he published an entry that brought disappointment to his fans, and anyone who held onto the hope of seeing more from Jabell: Yanagi will no longer continue to be a part of Jabell, though the unit’s future is uncertain. It sounds like the album won’t happen after all, and activity for the band may cease, though no official statement has been made to this effect. You can read Yanagi’s full explanation below, translated by myself (Ku) and writer Shannon.
Despite their guitarist, Shiki, making a full return to the band in December of last year, NAINE have announced that they have decided to call it quits.
NAINE’s final performance will be a oneman show titled, “NEW ANSWER IS NEW ENDING – CATASTROPHE”, on September 9th, at SHIBUYA WWW.
The following announcement was uploaded to the band’s OHP.
Like many fans, Shattered-Tranquility has been waiting for translations of D.I.D’s member comments, which came to fans through twitter, rather than comments on their ameblo pages.
Since most of D.I.D’s blogs have been non-functioning since December, Shattered-Tranquility has worked hard over the last several hours to properly order and translate the comments from D.I.D in regards to Akane’s illness and the hiatus.
Shattered-Tranquility’s Shannon has also translated the letter Akane wrote to his fans, given to D.I.D’s Sho. Sho, who has known Akane the longest (as a previous member of Para:Noir) has become the defacto leader and spokesperson for D.I.D during this troubling time. EDIT: This post has been updated with Issei’s comments.
You can read the translations below.
Hello my lovely readers!
I hate being the bearer of bad news, but I don’t want you to miss out on any announcements from your favorite bands. So, I’m bringing you a quick update about three smaller bands that have gone on hiatus in the past month or so.
If you’re wondering why Re-lay, Ultimate Sonic, or SiS are up to, you may be a little disappointed. However, if you’re curious as to what the members had to say about their decisions to go on hiatus, read on!
Fans of thrash metal visual rockers Re:Vellion were dealt a crushing blow last month. According to vocalist Chizuru‘s blog, guitarist Mio had to depart the band as of their April 24th live at Shibuya REX. No clear reasons for Mio’s farewell have been given, despite promises, though Chizuru has updated with a cheerful message suggesting that Re:Vellion indeed has a future.
What we can be sure of, and what our Adventure Tim courteously translated, is that Mio departed for some multitude of unknown reasons, and Re:Vellion is currently on indefinite hiatus but working every day to bring that to an end.
A slight bump in the road for MEJIBRAY, one of the scene’s hottest upcoming bands. Just days ago, drummer Meto suffered a bone fracture after a nasty fall, and as a result, a few shows of their long-awaited one-man tour celebrating their third anniversary have been postponed.
