D'espairsRay Announce Pause of Activities After Tour!


Currently D'espairsRay are performing overseas with their "D'espairsRay World Tour 2010 'Human-clad Monsters'" and have just announced their stop of all musical activities after its conclusion.
From the management and the members a statement has arrive, which we would like to share with you at this point.

D'espairsRay Announces Hiatus

To all our fans who have followed us and supported us throughout the years;

After much consideration and discussion, all 4 members of D'espairsRay have decided to take an indefinite hiatus following the conclusion of the 'D'espairsRay World Tour 2010 "Human-clad Monsters"'. During this time the band will be taking a break from all concerts and recording.

The reason for this hiatus is to allow HIZUMI (vo.) to fully recover from a past illness that has affected his throat and made it difficult to sing. HIZUMI has dealt with this rare throat condition for over a year, but the band's busy touring and recording schedule hasn't allowed him the time to fully undergo treatment. He currently plans to spend the early part of next year in recovery, and return to the band as soon as possible.

Although HIZUMI has undergone treatment to temporarily allow him to continue the current tour, it is not a permanent fix and there is no guarantee as to how long it will last. All 4 members of D'espairsRay plan to give their all for the remaining shows on this tour, both in Japan and overseas, and thank you for your continuing support in these difficult times.

Even after the band goes on hiatus, we will continue to update all websites and media outlets with the lastest iformation.

While consulting with various voice and throat specialists around Japan we have tried many treatments, but have not yet found one that has a high chance of success.

If anyone has any information regarding promising treatment options, including those done overseas, please contact us. Thank you.
email: info@despairsray.jp


More information on the return has yet to be announced.
We also hope for HIZUMI to recover and return quickly.
