I know this is sudden, but I wanted to share something with you all. I would like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for being with us for the past 15 years. In that timespan, we were able to meet some wonderful people and create irreplaceable memories. They will always have a special place in my heart.
Lately we have been discussing what the future of m.o.v.e is, to ensure we keep moving forward towards our dreams, and this is the conclusion we have come to.
I wonder how all of you will react? I hope you aren’t upset or disappointed…
We debuted with the name m.o.v.e, and because of all of you, our fans, we were able to turn m.o.v.e into more than just a name. We’ve turned it into a special place built from your love and support. We couldn’t have done any of this without you. m.o.v.e isn’t just us, you all are a part of m.o.v.e too, and this has made me happier than you will ever know.
Next year we will perform our last live concert. As this might be our last time together, we want to make it a big celebration for our bright future! We want this to be the greatest party we’ve ever had, and we need your help to achieve that! So let’s scream until our voices crack, dance until our feet hurt, and have the most fun we’ve ever had in our lives!! I love you all so much, and these memories will forever fill me with warmth and happiness. Thank you so much!”

“I’d like to thank all of you who enjoyed our music, those who have been checking out our works, those who have always come all the way to come see us at our concerts. I’d like to thank you very much for all your support. We’ve decided to go on with our own ways. The mountain roads we will be running will be different, but the music we’ve created will keep going.”
The album ”Best moves” which was supposed to commemorate their 15th year anniversary scheduled to be released on December 19th. But after the decision of disbanding it was postponed and renamed as ”Best moves.~and move goes on~” Packed with additional new songs and a final gift for the fans who purchased their latest album will be entitled to a admission ticket to their final concert.

No doubt they are perhaps the best known for the unique style with which they blend rock, rap, electronica, metal, and many other genres into their music. The Opening and Ending of Initial D “Around the World”, “Rage your Dream”, “Break In2 the Nite”, “Blazin’ Beat”, “Gamble Rumble”, “Dogfight”, “Blast My Desire”, “Nobody Reason” and “Noizy Tribe”. Well known among the Initial D fans m.o.v.e. has became as one with the series. Capturing the hearts of fans of the 80s and the 90s.
Let’s enjoy the great music they have given us in the past 15 years on the Music Videos below.
