Oh, the drama!
We only recently introduced Xrista, ex-OROCHI Yukimura’s (now Lyo) band, yet it seem there already is trouble! After performing less than a handful of lives, Xrista members announced on their Ameblo blogs yesterday that they have booted vocalist Hyuga from the band for various incidents such as money ‘borrowing’, missing rehearsals, and most importantly not showing up for their March 3rd live.
They have put the following post up as explanation.
An important notice from Xrista
At Xrista’s March 3 live, we suddenly had to perform without a vocalist when we received information that our vocalist Hyuga had been in an accident that very day.
However, today we learned that the information we received from vocalist Hyuga’s agent concerning the accident was proven to be false.
Even from before, there was a problem regarding vocalist Hyuga’s typical behavior.
For the sake of Xrista’s formation, the members sympathized with and supported his decision to change his behavior, but he frequently would be absent from the studio without notice, and because of money problems he repeatedly built up debt with the members of Xrista.
On each of these occasions, we strongly cautioned vocalist Hyuga, and he himself also showed intentions of changing.
However, because of the above-mentioned actions, as well as the falsified information regarding the March 3 live,
we have concluded that vocalist Hyuga has not changed at all, and as of today (March 5) vocalist Hyuga has officially been dismissed.
We would like to express our deepest apologies to all the fans that supported Xrista’s Hyuga, as well as to all the staff concerned.
Also, at our live at Ikebukuro EDGE on April 15th, we will continue moving forward with a new vocalist.
Xrista will continue activities from now on, so please lend us your support.
