For Tracy Hyde, Japanese Shoegaze Band, Break Up

2 min read

For Tracy Hyde have announced that they’re disbanding. The Japanese shoegaze band published a statement on its website earlier today (January 5), citing issues with the band’s current membership and artistic growth. The group’s final performance will take place on Saturday, March 25, in Tokyo.

“Since the turn of last year, we had been thoroughly discussing about our future directions, and had come to the conclusion that with the current lineup, it has become impossible for us to move along at the same pace, and achieve the potential growth we are capable of, both as a band and as individuals,” the statement said. “At the same time, replacing anybody with new recruitments was unimaginable, and since our history has gone past the 10-year mark, we feel that it is good timing to call it a day.”

The statement also includes a short response from each musician about the breakup and what’s next for their career beyond the group. “I would like to express my gratitude for our listeners, who have supported us to this day,” guitarist Azusa Suga (aka Natsubot) said in his response. “And last but not least, thanks to my bandmates, who I’ve shared this journey with.”

For Tracy Hyde was founded in 2012 by Natsubot. He was joined by the vocalist and guitarist Eureka in 2015, and the band released its debut album, Film Bleu, the following year. In 2022, For Tracy Hyde returned with Hotel Insomnia, a 13-track LP that included the singles “Friends,” “Milkshake,” and “Subway Station Revelation.”
