We introduced Melvel, a group with an interesting band concept, back in May. Unfortunately, they’ve already said goodbye to one of their own. On January 18th, drummer Kazuya returned to The Plant Kingdom (yep, that’s right). Read the official announcement below, translated in full by yours truly:
Important News from Melvel
Dr. Kazuya. will return to Plantae following his gardening on 2015-01-18.
First of all, I apologize for surprising you all with this sudden news.
Having to part with the band, members, and fans that I love so much is really painful, but the day I have to return to the plant kingdom has come…
However, I’ll continue to support my beloved members and Melvel even when I return!
I’ll do my best to make my last gardening spectacularly decorated and return to the plant kingdom satisfied. Please support me for my last show and Melvel, citizens of the garden.
I’ll be the best Kazuya. that Melvel has seen!
I’ll be waiting on 1/18.
Please continue to give your support to Melvel.
Luckily for Melvel, there seem to be a lot of drummers growing in the v-kei industry. They welcomed their new drummer ひょうが。 (Hyoga) on January 22nd. You can follow him on Twitter here.
Let’s hope Melvel’s members stay firmly rooted in the band!
