Maximum the Hormone Take Hiatus

Maximum the Hormone

With an announcement not quite in keeping with their wild rock image, the band Maximum the Hormone said today they are taking an extended break from performing. The reason? Drummer Nao (33) has been told by doctors that the band’s style and schedule is harmful for both her and her unborn baby. Nao, who got married at the end of last year, found out she was pregnant in early September. At the time she said she wanted to meet previously scheduled performing, but after she was taken by ambulance from a concert on Tuesday doctor’s said that the health of both mother and child was under threat. The band decided it was time to take a break and have indefinitely postponed two shows next week in Saga Prefecture. They have also pulled out of next February’s “Soundwave Festival 2010.”
