LIPHLICH humbly thanks you for your ongoing patronage.
Throughout the first half of March, LIPHLICH’s vocalist Shingo Kuga complained of discomfort in his throat, which upon examination in a hospital was diagnosed as chronic laryngitis, as well as vocal cord polyps.
He took a short break thereafter, and came back to perform once he was recovered, but at another scheduled checkup today, he was told that his existing condition has worsened, and for the moment, he needs to rest and recuperate.
On receiving this news from vocalist Shingo Kuga, LIPHLICH’s members, as well as Fuji Productions Co., and all of our various affiliates, have discussed the issue, and decided with great regret that as of today, Shingo Kuga will be taking an indefinite break in order to recover. Our shows from tomorrow onward (for the time being) will not have Shingo Kuga, but will be comprised of our guitarist Takayuki Arai, bassist Wataru Shindou, and drummer Maruyama Eiki.
We are sincerely sorry to all those hoping to see LIPHLICH with all four members at our lives and events. We offer our deepest apologies our customers and affiliates for all the trouble we have caused.
We hope that you will understand.
Fuji Productions Corp.
