マサミ (Masami), the drummer of エゴis≒徒 (Egoist), has announced that he will be leaving the band on the 28th of May. Here is what he has written about that decision in his blog:
As announced at the RUIDO K4, as of the next gig on 28th May, I, Masami will be leaving Egoist.
The first thing I would like to say to everyone the most,
is that I’m sorry for not thinking about your [fans’] feelings,
and I’m sorry for not being able to aim for the same dream together.
I’m sorry for the sudden announcement.
I’m sorry I didn’t explain things very well during my MC.
But I wanted to let everyone know through my own words.
I’m thinking of leaving the music industry, and taking a different path.
I had a lot of discussions with the other members, and in the end they are going to support me by saying,
“Maa-kun, you’re not leaving Egoist, you’re graduating.”
Rui-kun, Akanen, Hassun, I really am sorry, and thank you.
I don’t know what will cross my path or what is to come,
but I would like to move ahead at my own pace.
It might be tough to keep smiling till the end,
but I would like to graduate Egoist with a smile.
