On September 20, 2010 D'espairsRay announced that they would be going on an "indefinite hiatus" following "D'espairsRay World Tour 2010 "Human-clad Monsters" because vocalist Hizumi was suffering from a throat condition.

On June 15, 2011, it was announced that due to Hizumi's throat condition, D'espairsRay had no other option but to disband. There was no concert or tour to properly disband.

The band posted the following on their official Facebook page on Wednesday, June 15, 2011:

"Thank you for your continued support of D'espairsRay. Due to Hizumi's throat troubles, we had decided to take a hiatus immediately following our show at Yokohama Blitz on 30 Dec. 2010. However, after further discussions amongst the four members, we have decided to disband as of 15 June 2011 and cease all activities under the name D'espairsRay. To our loving fans and supportive staff members, who have followed us diligently from our founding on 9 Sept. 1999 until now, we deeply apologize for such a sudden and troubling announcement. All four members are deeply thankful, from the bottom of our hearts, for your enthusiastic support and encouragement. Thank you, D'espairsRay: Hizumi, Karyu, Zero, Tsukasa."
