Thai city-pop duo HYBS is officially ending their joint project, marking the end of a fruitful partnership of three years between members James Alyn and Karn Kasidej.

In a statement posted to their X (formerly Twitter) account, the pair announced that they will be ending the HYBS project, as they “never meant for it to go on forever.” Lovingly referring to their fanbase as “shrimpies” they both expressed their gratitude towards them for the immense and outpouring amount of love and support they’ve received, mentioning how thankful they are for all the opportunities their success has allowed them to attain.

From collaborating with some of the biggest indie acts in Asia to playing on stages in countries they’ve never expected to visit, the band made sure to assure fans of how much their experiences as HYBS meant to them over the years. “That, to us, is priceless. We will treasure it forever”, the statement reads. As a parting gift to their fans, HYBS also mentioned that they will be releasing a final EP in the next few months, which will contain a number of their previously unreleased songs to date. Additionally, both Alyn and Kasidej stated their upcoming plans to host a farewell concert, titled HYBS: Well Done Concert in their hometown of Bangkok, which is set to take place this March 16, 2024 at the MGI Hall, Bravo (Show DC).

Just recently, HYBS graced the Philippines with their presence last November 28 in a back-to-back concert with Dutch pop singer-songwriter Benny Sings. The show, which was a massive success, followed their participation in 2023’s Wanderland Festival, wherein they performed alongside international acts like Phoenix, Carly Rae Jepsen, Men I Trust, FKJ, and Dashboard Confessional, together with local performers like The Sundown, August Wahh, and more.
