Ziggrat, a band that has been around the block for a while, has some unfortunate news for fans today. Bassist Saryo has left the band because of his own doing. Read our translation of the band’s official announcement to find out the details (translated by yours truly):
Thank you always for your support.
We understand this is sudden, but bassist Saryo has left the band as of August 30th.
He has been deceiving his fellow band members, friends, and staff for some time now, and it has become a continuous problem for the band. We asked him to reconsider his behavior, but ultimately came to the decision that it would be best for Ziggrat if he left the band.
We apologize for letting you know of his departure after the fact.
We will continue playing shows with the help of a support bassist.
We will continue to improve ourselves as Ziggrat.
Please continue to give us your support.
While the news about Saryo’s departure–especially in this manner–may be upsetting to fans, we’re sure you also appreciate the band’s honesty. We’ll continue to keep you updated on Ziggrat’s activities.
