Mad Capsule Markets take a break

Mad Capsule Markets has gone on hiatus to pursue individual projects, reports The band posted an announcement on its official site. No time has been set for when the Mad Capsule Markets will continue.

Web sites for each of the members’ projects were listed in the announcement. Ueda Takeshi is working on Fuzz Rez Zweep, Kyono is involved with Wag Dug, while Miyagami Motokatsu is spending his time on Rhythm Method.

Mad Capsule Markets haven’t been as prolific since the turn of the century. Compared to the seven studio albums the band released in the ’90s, the trio managed to record only two studio albums since 2001. I’m not sure the news of the band’s hiatus comes as too much of a surprise.
