Today, Schwarz Kain had a disheartening announcement for fans. On March 7 at the band’s Ikebukuro RUIDO K3 show, bassist Ayaka will leave the band. According to their official announcement, Ayaka expressed his wish to leave the band at some point last year. Discussions between band members and management led to the decision to honor his wishes and let him leave.
That means Schwarz Kain will be down to three members in March. Is there a possibility of them stopping band activities? According to the band, fans don’t have to be worried. They’ll keep going.
Ayaka hasn’t made any additional comments on the matter, but vocalist Izumi has chimed in on Twitter to say this has been a decision in the works for a while now. Drummer Tomoya also added that he thinks Ayaka will keep on playing bass, since he hasn’t retired from the music world. So, Ayaka fans, there is hope! Keep an eye out for him.
