2nd effect disbands
Thanks to Samm. for letting us know about this announcement that 2nd effect had posted on their OHP!

It turns out, that the band will be disbanding on April 28th after their live at Shinjuku Holiday. They have been around for 10 years, and have finally decided to put an end to their activities.

They have stated clearly that they will not be coming back.

Their reasons for disbanding are that the members felt that they could not see a future for the band. However, they do hope that their final live can be one without any regrets, and they want to be proud of their last performance.
