Yuki, Versailles drummer, confirms hiatus

From his  official blog:

Notification of hiatus from Versailles

Dear our loyal fans and supporters in the world,

Versailles is going to take a hiatus at the end of 2012. In the 5th
anniversary year for us, we have kept seeking for our new musical
direction to enter a higher stage of Versailles. During that process
of discovering a new musical direction, we felt strong need and desire
to step outside of the band to inspire each of us to be a better
musician. This hiatus is for focusing on each member’s own
musicability that we will definitely bring all our new inputs to
Versailles when we are ready to be back together.

Since the beginning of the band, our main theme has always been ROSE.

With all the stories we have told in our music for the past 5 years,
we have gotten to the point where our 5th anniversary song “ROSE”
represents what ROSE really means to Versailles. That also determined
our hiatus to breathe in the fresh air outside the band.

Our new album is to be released in September and the last Japan tour
before our hiatus follows, which ends at NHK Hall in Tokyo on December
20, 2012.

We are incredibly grateful for your endless support for all those
years. And we appreciate your continuous support and love for
Versailles and future activities of each member. Thank you!! WE’RE
