Japan's Polysics have announced a US tour starting next week. The run also makes the last appearance of Kayo, longtime keyboardist, who will be leaving the group after the tour. Her bandmates will be taking a hiatus after the tour wraps up, saying this:
POLYSICS will be going on hiatus following their concert at the Budokan. This is a first for the band, who have been on a crazy schedule that have flabbergasted both Japanese and foreign artists alike. They will use this time to recharge their batteries for the next phase of POLYSICS. But then again, being who they are, there is the greatest possibility that this hiatus might prove to be an extremely short one.
