NIGHTMARE has decided that they need to take a break and will go on temporary hiatus later this year. They need to take care of their pysical conditions (like Yomi’s and Hitsugi’s spinal issues) in order to maintain quality as well as prepare for their 20th anniversary which will take place year 2020. How long they will be absent has not been mentioned, but som fans fear that they will not come back until their anniversary. But who knows…
The members with solo careers will contine as usual. Many fans think that this is a well-deserved rest for the guys since their latest releases haven’t really lived up to expectations.
Here is a translated message from NIGHTMARE:
“We would like to dearly thank everyone for their continued support. With this message we’d like to share something very important with all of you.
By the end of 2016, we have decided that we will temporarily seize our band activities.
Based on respect for our members health in recent years, for our goal to head towards a 20th anniversary, and furthermore to also maintain our quality as a band we have reached this conclusion.
We believe that this break will prove worthwhile for both our members and staff to regain their focus, and on the occasion when we resume our activities we’d like to show that worth to you as well.
Although Nightmare’s activity will be put on hold, the members will separately continue on with both solo and support activities.
As for the period of the break and when we will resume our activites we will let you know when the occasion calls.
To all our fans cheering for us, we’d like to send our deepest apologies for any inconvenience this may cause you and also ask for your understanding in this matter.”
