It looks like lynch.‘s beloved bassist is getting a second chance.
It’s been a little over a year since lynch.’s Akinori was arrested for illegal marijuana possession and dismissed from the band. lynch. took a break for a while, but eventually resumed activities without him. At their New Year’s countdown performance, however, they had some surprising news.
Akinori will officially be back in action on March 11, 2018. Akinori took the mic for a brief MC at that countdown live, which was transcribed in part by Gekirock news. He explained that he went to see lynch. for the first time since his arrest this August 2017 and realized his desire to be back in the band and to improve himself. He said, “I’ll take full responsibility for filling the hole that I’ve opened.”
While there may be some fans with mixed feelings about his return, we’re sure there are just as many that are happy to see him strumming again. Look forward to seeing what he brings back to the band on March 11 at the band’s 13th anniversary show.
