Solaris.★ have announced that their vocalist, Shizuku, will be leaving the band in April. Also, due to circumstances, their guitarist Yoku left the band on March 4th.
Shizuku posted the following in his blog:
Thanks for the oneman live yesterday!
Thank you so much to everyone who came!!!
And, I’m sorry.
After our sponsored event on April 7th, I, Shizuku, will be leaving Solaris.★.
My reason to leave,
is that the plans that Solaris.★ has for the future, are clashing with the direction I have personally expected for myself, and therefore this is the decision I have made.
I’m truly sorry for having to make an unexpected announcement like this.
I am extremely sorry to all of the fans that have been cheering on all of us in Solaris.★.
And one more thing.
Yesterday, Yoku was not on stage with us.
None of us really know much about what was going on, so I can’t really say much about it, but what I do know is that we were unable to get in touch with Yoku, and then he didn’t show up at yesterday’s oneman.
To the fans that were looking forward to yesterday’s oneman live, all of the members of Solaris.★ wish to apologize from the bottom of our hearts.
I am truly sorry.
With everything that’s happening at once, I’m sure everyone is confused.
Honestly speaking, right now, I’m really frazzled.
But, I’ll get over it.
I’ll show you I can get over it.
I’ll be leaving the band after our sponsored event on April 4th, and until that day, I will proudly stand on stage as the vocalist of Solaris.★, Shizuku.
please believe in be.
Please cheer for me.
With everyone’s words to “do your best”, Solaris.★ will do our best. (*´ω｀*)
There are still a lot of things that I want to write, so little by little, I’ll post them here in my blog.
The members have all posted different entries regarding what happened with Yoku, including Yoku himself. Basically, there’s a lot of ‘he did this’ and ‘they did that’, but long story short, the members got into an argument and Yoku quit the band, feeling cheated by the other members. It also appears that it is not Shizuku that Yoku had the problem with.
While the Yoku and three of the other members were snapping at each other, one of the biggest problem seems to be in the way the member’s reacted to Yoku’s ideas, especially when he mentioned he wanted to leave the band, as well as Yoku not being paid for costumes that he ordered (and put a down payment on) from an aquaintence for the band.
Yoku does not mention whether or not we will see him in a band again, but he does apologize to the fans for things having turned out the way they did.
