The time has come to say good bye to the LDH girl group E-girls. Their disbandment was announced at a release event for their 24th single “Bessekai“. Unfortunately, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic squashed many of their plans for 2020, but they still proceeded with December 31st as their disbandment date. Their official Twitter and Instagram account have both already been deleted.
Before disbanding E-girls was able to hold one more live concert titled “LIVE×ONLINE BEYOND THE BORDER E-girls LAST LIVE“, held online through the streaming service Abema TV. The concert also featured performances from the group Happiness, and also served as the final concert for the unit Sudannayuzuyully. It was at this live where the new LDH girl group SWEET REVENGE was announced.
The final song performed as a group was the track “eleven”, one of the new songs featured on their self titled best album that was released on December 28th, 2020.
E-girls got their start in April 2011 as a super group consisting of Dream, Happiness, and FLOWER members. They went on to become the most successful LDH group, with their debut studio album “Lesson 1” topping the Oricon charts.
Throughout the groups history many members came and went, but a huge shakeup to the group came in 2017 when the 19-member line up was reduced down to 11. Prominent members Shizuka and Dream Ami were among the many that graduated.
In total E-girls has released 5 studio albums, 2 compilation albums, 24 physical singles, and 14 digital singles. Their catalog can currently be streamed globally on most of your favorite services including Apple Music and Spotify.
