BLACK LINE will disband.

And there came the news. :-(

BLACK LINE went on hiatus last December and we mostly heard news about the vocalist Mikaru’s solo project G.L.A.M.S after that. However, BLACK LINE made a comeback some months later and released “THIS IS WAR”. That will unfortunately be their last album, ’cause on December 16th this year – the band will disband.

BLACK LINE

There last live will be at Otsuka DEEPA (December 16th), the very same place where their story once started.

There is no detailed reason behind the decision but Mikaru has posted the following on his Facebook page:

“I’m sorry in the sad announcement.
It was decided to discuss the band.
I wanted to keep the black line.
World of the black line, songs, members. I like all.
But it wasn’t possible unfortunately.
It’s very sad.
You only live once.
For me, even for them, there is a dream for each.
I respect them, they respect me.
We are very good friends.
Black line and Dio is family to me. Forever.
Songs and memories are my treasure.
And everyone.
Thank you for your support the black line.
Please watch over their activities in the future.”

Mikaru will keep being active with his solo project G.L.A.M.S. after this.

Chanteur et auteur, l’artiste japonais Mikaru est également peintre et illustrateur. Pour la première fois, il exposera ses oeuvres dans une galerie d’art parisienne.

Mikaru est particulièrement célèbre en France et dans toute l’Europe pour s’être produit régulièrement avec ses groupes successifs, Dio – Distraught Overlord et ensuite Blackline.
Chanteur et auteur, issu de la scène visual kei, Mikaru n’a jamais caché sa passion pour les arts picturaux. Depuis ses débuts, il illustre les couvertures de ses albums et diffuse de temps à autre ses œuvres sur internet.

Récemment, il lançait un projet artistique intitulé G.L.A.M.S, où il met en avant ses talents de peintre et dessinateur. Pour la première fois, Mikaru exposera ses travaux, du 14 au 20 février prochain, à Paris.

L’objectif de l’artiste est de se produire de manière inattendue à divers endroits dans le monde.

G.L.A.M.S., Paris 7 days
