Ketchup Mania to disband T_T
Pop-punk band ketchup mania posted a message to their fans on their official website, breaking the news that the group has decided to disband.
ketchup mania has been active since 1999. They made their major label debut in December 2005 under Universal Music, and in 2007 they transferred to TOY’S FACTORY. That same year, they made their U.S. debut at A-Kon, followed by performances in 2008 at Sakura-Con and on the SXSW Japan Nite tour.
According to the band’s announcement, the four members gradually grew apart in their vision for the band. It is expected that each will be pursuing separate music careers.
On April 8, the band will simultaneously release two best albums, one for their major label releases and one for their works as an indie band. They have also scheduled their final concerts for May 5-6 in Tokyo and May 10 in Nagoya.
This is incredibly sad because this one of the bands that i’ve followed through the years and seeing them go really saddens me T_T
I wish each member a big GOOD LUCK to each of their future endeavors~
