Thank you for your continued support of D'espairsRay.

 Due to Hizumi's throat troubles, we had decided to take a hiatus immediately following our show at Yokohama Blitz on 30 Dec. 2010. However, after further discussions amongst the four members, we have decided to disband as of 15 June 2011 and cease all activities under the name D'espairsRay.

 To our loving fans and supportive staff members, who have followed us diligently from our founding on 9 Sept. 1999 until now, we deeply apologize for such a sudden and troubling announcement.

 All four members are deeply thankful, from the bottom of our hearts, for your enthusiastic support and encouragement.

Thank you.

D'espairsRay HIZUMI Karyu ZERO TSUKASA


http://www.despairsray.jp/jp/information.html


The page continues to say that HIZUMI's throat condition, which caused the band to go on hiatus in the first place, isn't recovering as the band hoped, and has no signs of full recovery in the future.

Personally, I am deepy saddened by this announcement. They were easily one of my top bands, and I even got the chance to see them perform live in Toronto last August. They were excellent live!! I was hoping for them to get on with more activities and new releases, but seeing HIZUMI is unable to continue because of health, a disbandment seems only logical. I will surely miss D'espairsRay!

Don't give up all hope yet. We've seen enough previously disbanded bands get together again. Even if it's only for a few concerts. Hopefully HIZAKI recovers from his throat condition again.

It's HIZUMI, not HIZAKI. ;)

Same here, it's pretty sad. I never became a huge fan but I really did like their music and would have enjoyed seeing them live.

D'espairsRay was one of my favorite bands and one of the best live bands ever heard. So this sudden disbanding is really sad and it was a big shock to read this yesterday at facebook. I will miss them so much. Ever they will have a special place in my heart. Anytime, I hope it so much, it will give a reunion.

this is so bad :/ saw them twice in cologne i think, really really great, but the new albums doesn't match with [Coll:set], best album definitely! :)

all the best for the singer, wish him a full recover from his illness. O daiji ni!
