I just found out STEREO PONY broke up five months ago

Aimi Haraguni (Lead Guitar and Vocals), Nohana Kitajima (Guitar) and Shiho Yamanoha (Drums). They were Stereo Pony, my first and favorite all-female Japanese Rock (J-Rock) band. I saw them perform when they came to Anime Boston 2011 and fell in love with their music. They have also done music for a few anime such as Bleach and Eureka Seven.

The group took time off last fall so that Aimi could have throat surgery done. It was after the surgery was done the band decided to dissolve, leading many to speculate complications from the surgery would prevent Aimi from committing to the band full time. This was further reinforced when Nohana and Shiho joined Evan Taubenfeld after the breakup was announced under the name EVANPONY. His name might sound familiar to Avril Lavigne fans. He was her lead guitarist before he he started working with Stereopony.

I’m sad Stereo Pony dissolved but when stuff happens there’s nothing you can do. I’m sure it wasn’t an easy decision but without their lead vocal they did what they had to do I guess. On the bright side who knows? We might see them come back together someday.
