They finished the Europe part of the tour at Chambonnières castle in France. In 2012, they ended the world tour at Shibuya Public Hall.
In 2012 they released a single “rose” and also released an album “Versailes”. The same year they announced a hiatus as they finished a concert at NHK Hall. The band took a break from performing for a couple of years.
In December 2015, the band survived the hiatus and started performing. To celebrate, they had a concert at Zepp DiverCity Tokyo, which was broadcasted worldwide.
In June 2016, the band was showcased again at Zepp DiverCity Tokyo and in August, the band performed a concert at Makuhari Amphitheater, celebrating their comeback.
The band is back and marching forward to shake the Japanese visual rock scene!!
