Their first albumZERO ONEhit the No.1 in the Oricon indies album weekly chart and DIV was gaining popularity in the Visual-kei music scene. This unpredictable news was released out of the blue, as they were recently touring vigorously nationwide.

Members’ Comments

Every time when we were seeking or being demanded how we should be, I admit the fact that it might have built an irreparable distance between us as an artist, not as a person.

The two of us left, did consider prolonging the life of DIV, however, we could not imagine DIV to be any better without four of us, so we made a decision to disband to respect each one of us.

Beginning and Ending are inextricably linked together; beginning something has the same meaning as counting down for the ending.

But something new must always start from the ending.

I wish the rest of each of our live shows becomes a start of something precious for each one of you coming to see us, so I will sing at the top of my lungs.

Thank you for being there for our story always, for 4 and half years. My cherished story cannot be described without every one of you.









 CHISA (Vo))

First of all, I apologise our sudden announcement might have been much to the dismay of you.

I feel terribly sorry that we are unable to continue DIV only with my will.

However, I promise that we will devote our full effort to the rest of live shows and events as DIV.

Yaon will be the last stage I can meet you as Shogo from DIV.

It was still a short period, 4 and half years, but I cannot thank you enough for our fans for sparing your time to listen to our music and come to see us on many occasions.

I am truly thankful for your support.

I am reluctant to be in a sad atmosphere, so I would like to take what I obtained in the last 4 and half years to the next tour and the final show at Yaon.

Let’s make it the hottest night till the end!

Shogo (G)









将吾 (G))

It has been more than 4 years since DIV has started and we have experienced many different things.

Meeting, parting, happy, sad and amazing moments – I appreciate all of our memories that we spent our times with the fans and staff around us.

I was cheered up every time I hear from the fans about how you felt our music and live shows.

Although I wanted to convey my gratitude to you, I can only do it as DIV until 10th October at Yaon.

I might have made you feel sad as I am leaving the band on such short notice. However, four of us from DIV will be proceeding to each way from October, so I would like you to follow our new steps going forward.

There is only a few moments left for us, but I would be delighted if you could enjoy final DIV show with all your might.

Chobi (B)








ちょび (B))

We have made a decision to disband DIV.


The number of days I spent as “DIV satoshi”.

Those days we made many brilliant memories.

I used to say I have not gained anything yet, but now I understand and appreciate the fact that I have already gained various precious things.

I am still pursuing something.

I believe that I can still go forward.

We must be able to see each other if you wish for.

Even if the shape is changed, our thoughts are not going to be changed.

Please hope to see each other again.

I am hoping to see you again on the way I am stepping forward.

You found us in the middle of those piled up dummies shoddily displayed.

What colour am I in your eyes now?

If possible, I would like to be in a vivid colour until our last moment.

With my sincere gratitude for all of the people I have met in the time I spent.

Thank you for everything.

I was so happy to see you.
