アイギス (Aigis) has announced that 神無 (Kanna) had left the band, not even performing for their first official live ! The following announcement was posted on the band’s OHP:
Although the gig on the 14th was right in front of us, as of today, the drummer Kanna has left the band. We sincerely apologise to our fans and to those who have supported us so far.
He had in the past announced to the other members that he wanted to quit, and so it came to the fact that he would continue on until the summer, however, as of the 5th February we were unable to get in contact with him, and though we even visited his home we were not able to meet with him.
A few days later, we received an e-mail from him saying, “I don’t have the motivation to carry on [with the band]”, and as of then we have lost contact with him. After a discussion with the other members, it was decided with great regret that he would no longer be a part of us.
We will, nonetheless, continue our planned gigs and performances, so we wish for you not to worry.
We realise that this is a big incident to be happening before we have even done our first gig [as of our revival], and as a result we are deeply embarrassed and sincerely sorry.
We would like to pull ourselves together after such a blunder, and we hope that you will continue to support us.
We know that this has been a selfish action on our own accord and incredibly sudden news, but we ask for your kind understanding.
We wholeheartedly apologise for the inconvenience caused to those involved and to all our fans.
From now on, the band will have to look for a new drummer. Until then, Tumi (ex-CELL HEAD ; now in LOKI) will perform as their support drummer.
