ルーシー (Lucy) have announced that on March 30th they will be going on an activity pause.
So far the only one to write in their blog about it is Taisuke, and this is what he had to say.
Thanks for the live at RUIDO K4.
We told you this today, but after our live on March 30th, Lucy will be going on an activity pause.
We currently have two lives left, so we hope that you’ll show you’re support.
There’s a chance that [the number of lives we have left] may increase, but for now, we have two planned.
I’m going to give you a rough idea [about our decision].
It’s hard to talk about, so I’m sorry i you feel uncomfortable.
I’m in this band for the sake of myself, and for the sake of the band. I’m not in it for everyone else’s sake.
We’re in a band for ourselves, and it’s taken on the form of a dream.
Besides, if you look at it, I think that the fans who come to the lives come because they think we look good.
On the contrary, if you can’t identify with us, don’t come to the live… I don’t care.
It’s not something that’s necessary for being a fan.
Although I guess practically everyone is like that.
I guess that’s how I feel.
However, it’s hard for your dreams to take shape!
It’s been about three years since we started our activities, and we’ve done this and that to make the dream closer, but it’s not really getting closer at all.
And there have been times where it’s become more distant. (Laughs)
Lately, we’ve gotten closer to it, but we’re not completely there.
Honestly, I feel really strongly that I don’t want to do lives where our dream is out of reach from it.
Putting it simply, it’s like you don’t plan to make bad tasting food or food that’s not great, but not bad… just normal.
You want it to be like, “THIS IS DELICIOUS!!”.
If it’s not delicious, you don’t want to serve it at a restaurant.
Because of course, I think that if a restaurant prepares their food half-assed, it’s just going to be embarrassing.
Until the restaurant can make and serve delicious food, they close down for a bit.
It’s okay if you don’t understand.
You can give us your understanding, but if you don’t, that’s okay too!
In the end, our values and our tastes are probably different. (Laughs)
We hate it when we do lives when we know that we could have done better, and because that is something that’s unacceptable we’ve decided to go on an activity pause.
As I kept writing, it got harder and harder to understand… (Laughs)
Please understand that this is a positive decision, and that this activity pause is not for limiting our dream, but for coming closer to it.
So that we can have no regrets…
