In January of this year, Nobady caused quite a commotion when vocalist Raku up and quit the band in a spectacularly sudden and dramatic way. Despite the immense stress of such an untimely and bitter dereliction of duty, Nobady quickly passed the baton – or the mic – to support vocalist ryu, formerly of Hi:BRiD.
Unfortunately, last month, ryu’s tenure came to an end, though without the acrimoniousness of the previous vocalist’s departure. Fortunately, Nobady already had a new support vocalist lined up: Soyogi.
Not too much is known about Soyogi’s experience or his contract with Nobody. Soyogi was previously vocalist of a little-known but gossip-worthy Kansai-based session, 激走！坂本金八24時 (Gekisou! Sakamoto Kinpachi 24ji), where he went by the handle Ryo. “Kinpachi” gained quite a following, at least according to various 2ch boards, and the vocalist, in particular, drew quite a hot crowd.
How long Soyogi will last with Nobady (and if he’ll continue with Kinpachi on the side) is uncertain. Whether he’ll be another support vocalist filling in the gaps, or whether Nobady is vying to become a full-sized band once more with Soyogi at the helm, remains to be seen.
Whatever the case, for now, Soyogi will be fronting Nobady at their upcoming performances. Be sure to catch him at any of the following event lives this summer!
