Some sad news from the Japanese music industry, as the official website for girls’ band Negoto has announced that the 4-member band is breaking up. They expect it to happen next year, after their final concert on 20 July 2019.

All four band members also wrote messages to fans to thank them of their support. They said that they will each walk on new stages after they disband.

The four members of Negoto consists of vocalist and keyboardist Sachiko Aoyama, guitarist Mizuki Masuda, bassist Yuu Fujisaki, and drummer Sayako Sawamura. The four all went to high school together and formed the band back in 2006. They then officially debuted in 2009, and also performed theme songs for various anime titles. These include Galilei Donna, Gintama, Mobile Suit Gundam AGE, and After School Midnighters.
