Ebisu Muscats announces their disbandment next spring
On December 16th, Ebisu Muscats held their one-man live "X'mas Rock'n Roll Night~Hadaka no manma de Dete Oide~" at Nakano Sun Plaza, and during the live, it was announced that the group would be disbanding after their live at Maihama Amphitheater on April 7th of 2013.
The announcement was made during the encore by the third leader Kishi Aino. She said tearfully, "Our program 'Onedari Muscat SP!' will end next spring, and with the end of the program, we will also be disbanding. Though it is regrettable, this is the decision we made." Kishi continued, "We were first told that this program would end after 6 months, but we were able to keep going for 5 years, it has taught us a lot of things just like school. Although we are different from other idols, I am proud that we are able to announce our disbandment at such a big venue like this. Thank you very much for this past 5 years." The members then received generous applause from the audience.
At the press conference before the live concert, the general director of their program Makkoi Saito revealed the reason of the group's disbandment, "From the beginning, I was thinking that the disbandment should be when the girls are in the best form. They have achieved the 7th place on Oricon weekly chart with their latest single 'Gyakusou Idol' (released on October 31st), and also the audience rating for the program has reached 2.5% which was the highest, so I wanted it to disband at this timing."
"Onedari Muscat SP!" will end on March 30th, and they will start their disbanding live tour "Ebisu Muscats Kaisan Tour 2013 'ABAYO'" starting in February. It was also announced that they will release their last single "ABAYO" on March 6th, as well as their last album "Sotsugyou Album" in April.
