On September 8th, BAROQUE released an announcement on Twitter and their official website that they are going into indefinite hiatus, with Ryo (怜) having announced the decision that he is retiring from musical activities.
The reason behind Ryo's decision to retire is due to physical and mental exhaustion. Originally, Ryo had planned to retire after finishing the tour. But due to COVID-19 and the subsequent postponements, after further discussions, they have decided to instead cancel all the remaining dates for the 「BAROQUE TOUR SAINTS OR SINNERS」 tour.
However, despite such sad news, there is a silver lining on the cloud as Guitarist Kei (圭) will continue on with his musical activities under his solo project, Kei (圭), and will release a new solo album soon, titled "utopia.".
