It’s been nearly two years since we introduced the Tokyo-based A.S.K., but their 8th single 「虫唾」 (Mushizu) released earlier this summer may be a their last for a while; following their September 29th live at Shibuya REX, the band will enter a hiatus as guitarist Nayuta leaves the band.
Here is the band’s announcement, translated by Shattered-Tranquility.net’s Shannon:
To all of A.S.K.’s supporters
Rhythm guitarist Nayuta will leave the band following our 2015-09-29 sponsored event live due to directional differences.
On that same day, A.S.K. will enter a brief hiatus.
September marks 2 years since A.S.K.’s formation. We sincerely apologize to all of our fans for making such a disappointing announcement at this timing.
There is still about half a year until our activity pause, so we’ll play until then with everything we’ve got and more.
Please continue to give us your unchanging support.
The Members of A.S.K. and
ID JAPAN Death trap-records
This is the second line-up change in as many years for A.S.K., who also lost previous guitarist Yuya and bassist Akina.
Here is the band’s live schedule until their hiatus begins:
Aug 12th (Wed) @ Ikebukuro EDGE
Aug 25th (Tue) @ Shibuya duo MUSIC EXCHANGE
Aug 27th (Thur) @ Shibuya REX
Sept 3rd (Thur) @ Ikebukuro EDGE
Sept 14th (Mon) @ HOLIDAY SHINJUKU
Sept 29th (Tue) @ Shibuya REX
Hopefully A.S.K. will recruit some new members and restart activities soon.
