I hate to say it, but I’ve got a whole bunch of bad news for you this week. To start things off, the disbandment of BIOSPHIA. The band released a brief statement on Tuesday announcing that they will disband following their one-man live on April 2 at Osaka MUSE. No official member comments as of yet, just a few apologetic and very disappointed tweets. Their latest single, Suicidal Diva, coincidentally released the same day as the announcement and there don’t appear to be plans for any further releases.
Next up is the unfortunate announcement of the cancellation of ViViD‘s one-man show in Mexico. Vocalist Shin made the following statement in English via Twitter: “Unfortunatly, we had to decide to cancel our live concert in Mexico. We have tried so hard until the end to tried to make this trip to work out, but we had to make the decision to cancel due to safety reason. We feel really unfortunate that we had to cancel the tour over time but we will promise u all to perform a awesome live when we make it next time!” The band was forced to cancel due to a protest movement happening in Mexico city. They hope to reschedule once the protest dies down and it is safe for their visit. Check the artist homepage for more details and refund information.
