To everyone who has always supported “AYABIE”
At this time it has been decided that after the 7/5 performance at Shinjuku BLAZE, “AYABIE’s” KENZO will leave the band.
This past year, we’ve held huge talks between the members, including staff.
And, the decision that KENZO made is to return to privacy, and to start off toward a new dream.
For that reason he will withdraw from AYABIE and it seems he has arrived at nothing other than the idea of pursuing himself.
The departure of KENZO, who has been active as the drummer of Ayabie, Ayabieru, and AYABIE for the long period of seven years and eight months is, of course, a shame to the members and the staff but we can’t only feel sadness.
AYABIE and KENZO both have one goal.
That is, delivering the best productions to all of the fans.
Hereafter AYABIE will welcome a support drummer and is planning on touring and releases without stopping.
Please, even after this, give your support to AYABIE and to KENZO as well.
AYABIE Yumehito, Takehito, Intetsu, Taito, and all DNL staff

This is KENZO.
It’s sudden, but I have an announcement for everyone.
I, KENZO, will leave AYABIE after the July 5th live.
Different things have happened publicly and privately, but I am always grateful to the many different people who have supported me, starting with all of the fans.
I was active as the drummer of Ayabie, Ayabieru, and AYABIE for the long period of seven years and eight months,
but for a time I’ve been sensing a difference in the direction of my basic lifestyle.
The result of a long period of worrying is, I decided that I’ll go towards a new dream as a lone human being.
I would like to apologize here that because of various circumstances, the announcement has regrettably come just after having added a new member.
We will make announcements any day now on the official site and personal Twitter regarding activities from here on.
The remaining time is short, but please treat AYABIE and me, KENZO, well.
As mentioned above, KENZO’s last live will take place at their oneman at Shinjuku BLAZE on July 5th. Tickets will cost ￥4000 (￥4500 day of) to attend, and general sales began on May 25th. Everyone, please wish him the best in his future endeavors!
