According to a message posted to the members’ blogs last week, Crazy★shampoo drummer ひろき (Hiroki) is leaving the band after their September 4th live.
※An important message from Crazy★shampoo※
We are truly grateful for those who have continually supported us.
At this time, it has been decided that drummer Hiroki, who has been with us since the beginning of the band, will depart after the September 4th guest performance that will take place at Ikebukuro CYBER.
We are deeply sorry to everyone for this sudden announcement.
Members and staff have had countless discussions about it, but in accordance with Hiroki’s own strong will and desire, we have come to this.
Furthermore, Crazy★shampoo’s schedule will not change.
We are really sorry for this sudden announcement. It has been decided that Hiroki will leave Crazy★shampoo after September 4th. This is the result of many discussions we’ve had before now. But, we would like everyone to understand that this is a forward-facing decision. It doesn’t mean that we don’t get along; we think everyone knows that the five of us in Crazy★shampoo are good friends. It doesn’t mean that Hiroki no longer likes Crazy★shampoo. But, while playing in Crazy★shampoo, Hiroki was able to realize his dream of playing the drums in even more places. At first the other members quit too, but while we continued to talk countless times we came to the conclusion that it would be wrong to unreasonably suppress Hiroki’s dream and make him continue. Crazy★shampoo will continue to exist as we are, and Hiroki will continue to drum. The paths we walk will be different, but we promise with all our power that we won’t stop, for the sake of our dreams. Please support Crazy★shampoo and Hiroki from now on. And, please give Hiroki your best as Crazy★shampoo’s drummer until he leaves on September 4th.

In keeping with the overall positive tone of this announcement, the band has already planned two consecutive oneman lives to welcome the yet-unnamed new member that will join their ranks. Titled 「RRR」 DAY 1 and 「RRR」 DAY 2, the concerts take place at Meguro Rock-May-Kan on September 26th and 27th. Tickets to each day are 3,000 yen. The pre-sale will be held at their live tomorrow, while the general sale starts on August 25th.
Besides the chance to see Crazy★shampoo’s new member in action, attendees can look forward to receiving a previously unreleased track as a present! There are two types, A and B, and each will be distributed at one of the lives.
