yes, this is the first thing that came up with me when open my FB account yesterday , i cant still move on from this sad news that I have RED yesterday. MY favorite band has already decided to part-ways .it really breaks my heart, bcoz they are not just a band but because they are amazing, all of RIA’s composition are really amazing , she is not just a vocalist but also a drummer of her own band. one of my favorite song of them is “SA PILING NYA” they played in the music industry for almost a decade and I think it was too early for them to do this. But RIA also informed all of her fans that she will never leave the music industry, music has been the center of RIA’s life. she says that all of her dreams came true because of her band, She wrote a farewell letter as a gift for her fans, so im going to show you the letter that almost break my heart :
Hi guys! Most of you may have noticed that the band hasn’t been playing gigs lately well, I’m afraid I have some sad news.. After 9 years and 3 albums, I have decided to let Paramita go.
Me, Marco, and Alsey are going to part ways as bandmates, but we are still very much good friends in fact, our friendship even grew stronger after I told them about my decision. The have been been absolutely supportive every step of the way. I am proud to be their singer and drummer for almost a decade and even more proud to be their friend with or without Paramita.
This decision did not come easy. Paramita has been the center of my entire career. It has brought me to places I’ve never dreamed of. It made me reach out to people and be part of their lives. Which is why I gave the idea much deliberation and thought. In the end, the need for growth as an artist and musician prevailed.
I want to try new things, experiment, collaborate, and challenge myself once more. I want to go back to basics, stripped of everything, be vulnerable and let the music take center stage. I want to remain true to myself, my bandmates, and you, our loyal fans. I owe everything I have to all of you and you deserve nothing but the best from me which is what I continually strive for.
It’s painful, almost unthinkable, especially to me, but it has to be done and there is no other person to do this task but me for I started Paramita and it is fitting that I be the one to end it.
The band may be gone but me, Marco, and Alsey are definitely not retiring. Not anytime soon at least. Marco has a couple of projects with Alsey and they’re gigging actively around the metro. I, on the other hand, plan to pursue a solo career, release a solo album, and collaborate with some of the local scene’s young, aggressive, and talented artists. Aside from music, all three of us have countless other activities. So we’re still gonna be pretty much around.
The Paramita page will continue to be active. Me and Marco will post updates, videos, and gigs. Not as Paramita, though, but as separate artists.
Thank you so much for your love and support all these years. The band never could have lasted this long if not for you.
I said this numerous times and I’ll say it again: I never dreamed of having thousands of fans, playing huge rock concerts, and signing autographs. My dream was to make music, play some gigs, and have a handful of followers who are passionate about the music I make. Thank you for making that dream come true. Thank you for giving life to Paramita. We love you all.
you see? Ria informed that she wanted to be a solo artist, and try a new field in music industry,i think we have to respect her decision not only her decision but HER band’s decision. although its painful, we have to accept the fact that in this earth nobody is permanent. but the only permanent is the memory and the song they’ve shared in all of us. PARAMITA WILL BE GONE but not the music they have shared with us, GOODLUCK RIA may ur new journey lead you to success.
