In 2012, Sel’m made a strong comeback, despite being brought down to two members in April of 2011.
Unfortunately for the band they will have to continue their activities without their gutarist, じょん (John), who has announced that he will be leaving the band this autumn.
The following message was posted on the band’s OHP.
A message to fans and those involved from Sel’m
Thank you for your continuous support of Sel’m.
We regret to announce that rhythm guitarist Jon, who has pursued band activities earnestly with vocalist Ryuga since their rebirth in 2012, will be leaving the band.
Sel’m’s one-man performance at Shibuya Star lounge on October 19th will be the band’s last performance as 5 members.
Details will be released at a later date on our official website and Twitter. Please wait for them.
We apologize to all of our fans and those involved for this sudden announcement and for all the trouble we’ve caused, but please continue to support us.
