AHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Frankly, I don't know what I feel about that.

From what I heard, they didn't manage to move to bigger venues in the last couple of years, meaning that their growth was stale...
So it's not surprising from that point of view.

 

On the other side, they finally started releasing their own music, and now this.

 

Oh well, the world of j-rock.

They kind of ran out of good diru to emmulate

 

In a way I'm okay with them being over. Their last two singles didn't have an impression on me like all of their 2015 releases did, and 〜reliving the old days〜 is such a broad topic that they could have explored, yet they kept a laser focus on only one flavor of it.

 

As much as I'd like to speculate that this was because of Ains pouring all of their money into Gossip now (like RR did with Avanchick), my dudes ran out of steam as soon as their 3rd album dropped (they had a song on it that sounded like they just didn't want to write the later 2/3rds of!!)

 

RIP homage-kei

I'll admit to losing interest after 2014, but I'm still not thrilled about this. Especially since this is happening on my birthday. I just wanted them to get their shit together, not call it quits!

 

I was rooting for you, we were all rooting for you, how dare you!! [2]

Exactly this. They really dropped one repetitive release after another and in such small time windows. Most of their songs are really same-ish, some are even simply rewrites with different lyrics. Yet, there was SO much potential in this band as demonstrated by their excellent V.A. tracks, it's a shame they simply couldn't make use of it and always fell back into old behavior, playing it safe.

 

So, it's sad to see them go, but it was so expected for it to happen. Hopefully the members join new kote/homage kei groups ;3

 

Also this means that gossip is the only band signed on ains, right? That label too had such a promising future, could have easily become the next UCP, but Yukika somehow throws that away and I am sure it won't be long until this ship sinks just like RR did.

As of currently, Gossip, Diaura, Amanjaku. and MIZTAVLA are handled by Yukika. Possibly LIM as well. (although I believe that Gossip and Diaura are the only ones who are officially under the ains label).

That's sad.

I loved them when they came out and, I didn't really care much if they were copying Dir en grey. I was desperate for old school Visual Kei that it still felt refreshing. Then they began to lose the old school appeal, sort of assimilating the trend in today's Visual Kei and I stopped following their music.

 

I think there is a lot of room to explore old school Visual Kei sounds and give them a more contemporaneous touch, but well...

 

Could someone translate their message?
