Visual kei band Develop One’s Faculties has unfortunately announced that they will disband after their one-man performance on December 20, the exact same day they formed back in 2014. The announcement came in the form of a photo with the members facing a wall and text above.
The band didn’t provide a specific reason behind the decision to disband but stated that they are truly grateful for the support. The translation of the announcement and disbandment announcement photo is as follows:
From Develop One’s Faculties to everyone:
Thank you for supporting Develop One’s Faculties.
Following the final date of Develop One’s Faculties ONEMAN TOUR [ ], on December 20, 2023, we will end activities as a band.
Since forming on December 20, 2014, the reason we’ve been able to achieve so much is because of all the support from you, our fans, and our staff. We are truly grateful.
Though our remaining time together is short, we’ll put our thanks and full effort into our performances. We hope we can count on your kind support until the very end.
