Nihilizm celebrated their 2nd anniversary back in November 2015. Though they haven’t been around very long, it seems guitarist ミケ (Mike) is already calling it quits.
The band announced that Mike will be leaving Nihilizm following their show on May 10th at Shinjuku RUIDO K4. The reason, according to the band’s official announcement and Mike’s official comment, is that Mike had felt a disconnect between his ideas of the band and the other members’. He said he felt the gap in thought particularly strongly after their 2nd anniversary show finished. Rather than continue on in this state, he decided it would be better for himself and the band to make his departure.
Nihilizm will continue on as 3 members after Mike’s departure, so don’t worry! They won’t be stopping anytime soon.
