Some BAD news: Ikimono Gakari to take a break in 2011

Post by Bigtop on Thu Dec 09, 2010 8:47 am

Ikimono Gakari to take a break in 2011

Ikimono Gakari vocalist Kiyoe Yoshioka (26) announced on Wednesday night that her weekly radio show "Ikimono Gakari Yoshioka Kiyoe no All Night Nippon" will be ending with its December 21 broadcast. More importantly, she apparently confirmed that the band will be taking a break from performances during the first half of 2011.

A rumor was published in newspapaers last month that the band would be going on hiatus for the first half of 2011, but the band and their record label issued public denials at the time. The band's leader, Yoshiki Mizuno, previously said that the members had discussed focusing on writing new songs, but that they would continue with their live activities.

It is now being reported that Ikimono Gakari will indeed be focusing on writing, but will not be doing any concerts or live performances. The length of the "hiatus" has not been decided, but a source says that it will be half a year at most, and that the band will fully resume activities by July. Their performance at Kohaku Uta Gassen on December 31 has been declared as their "last" for now.

The timing of the decision seems odd, given that they are currently at their peak with their recent best album "Ikimono Bakari ~Members BEST Selection~" getting certified by the RIAJ as reaching 1 million copies shipped. However, Yoshioka said, "We've run too far so we would like to take a rest. Please forgive our selfishness."

Ikimono Gakari has three more concerts left in their current tour, beginning with one on Thursday. It is expected that they may deliver more details to their fans at those shows.

Source: Tokyograph (http://www.tokyograph.com/news/id-7131); Sankei Sports (original Japanese article - http://www.sanspo.com/geino/news/101209/gnj1012090507016-n1.htm)

We're going to feel sad that they're going on hiatus for the first half of next year. Already we lost ayaka last year (she's on hiatus), and earlier this year Utada announced hiatus indefinitely.

So, what do you think about this announcement? I was quite surprised - and also sad - about their announcement to go on hiatus for the first half of next year. Crying or Very sad

they said they take a break only in live performance. and they want to focus in writing song. so for me it would be fine cos they still productive though there'll be no performance in next 6 month

It's not good for promotion, since they're now literally on their peak, but...

they're artists, and I respect and appreciate this decision. Many other bands I admire once went on hiatus (The Beatles for God's sake! Very Happy). So, I hope everything turns out well and this break helps them.

Go Iki, we'll always support you guys.


Thanks for the information, bigtop! Apparently it made me kinda sad, too.

i already hear about their hiatus, its good the choose it after the best album, after 5 years hard work in major label, they deserved it.

their human side need rest too, if you guys notice the last song of the best album they just wanted to go home(kaeritaku natta yo)..............

i hope they will get back with more spirit and create more good song for us to enjoy..............

thanks for everything ikimonogakari, hontouni arigatou gozaimas!!!!

yes this is some bad news, but yeah they deserve the rest they need after all their hardwork...

It's alright kiyoe, the fans would be the one being selfish if we don't want you guys to take a rest Very Happy...
You can get a free massage from me hehehe


Well, let's just wait for them, and i'm sure they'll return with even greater music than what greatness they already have.

They may be on a hiatus in the industry, but they will never be in our hearts... c=

It's a sad news and 6 months hiatus is way too long. I agree with bananafish, they are on peak so i believe that this is the perfect time for them to really show who they are to the world. But, we have to respect their decision...So, hope to receive good news from them on July 2011..maybe a new album with more kiyoe's touch

Why did I have to say that?...


Razz

Now, seriously, I think it's the right move to make. Yes, they achieved a nice position and status and could capitalize on that but hten again, a rushed job almost always ends badly. The "Best Of" album was a good mark to achieve before a rest and as Ikimo said, the more they rest and dive into their creative side, the more we can expect them to deliver a quality release.

They just released 3 new songs on their best album, so that can appease fans for the hiatus. And their 20th single is coming up, they may make it really spectacular.
Besides, the longer you wait for something, the more precious it becomes.

i agree with ikimo, they should get some rest...they have been working very hard for the past few years and they deserve this small hiatus... probably after their hiatus, they will very active again like they were this year... i just hope to be able to hear their new songs when they have their come back... Very Happy

My emotions and thoughts about this one is somewhat in the middle.

It's true that they're on their peak but if i try to think about it...probably leaving fans with their best album is the best choice before taking a break.

After years of hardwork, its just reasonable for them to have a rest. Remember guyz, more time means more good songs will be produce.

Kiyoe also needs to rest her voice and have a beauty rest as well. hehe. And of course have time for love life. (yes! moment ive been waiting for!...lol)

Maybe hotaka will visit the Philippines again for his vacation.
cheers

best selection song..is the best decision before taking break..i wonder maybe they've intended this before, so, they've to give us "something to hear' for this 6 months :p

awww... hopefully they will continue to be writing songs like it says and maybe release a single. But, they are an amazing band for coming this far and they do deserve a good, well rest until they resume again. But don't worry, they will come back sometime and when they do, I'm sure it's going to be a really big hit Smile

My friend told me about this at school when it hit the news, but since I'm stuck in finals hell the wave of emotions just hit me now!

I'm sad, of course, but they need to take their well-deserved break. Plus, 6 months is nothing compared to Utada Hikaru and ayaka's indefinite hiatuses... >_<

With any luck I can run into one of the members while I'm in Tokyo Razz (...yeah right, I wish! lol)

^ Possible...why not...but most likely it will be in some resto or bars where celebrities use to go...or some place where privacy can be bought by money.
