THE GALLO recently announced that a new guitarist will be joining the band! And they have the most qualified person for the position, which–as you have probably already guessed–is none other than their support guitarist, ノヴ (Nov)! Here’s a translation of the announcement the band has up on their OHP:
To our kuroi mendoori
Thank you for your continuous support to THE GALLO.
As of August 25, 2016,
Nov (6-strings) has joined the band as a member.
We’ve been a 4-member band since last autumn,
and we have made it until today as a result of circumstance and meeting.
We will work harder than ever to produce better shows and music for you to enjoy
as a new GALLO.
We hope all of our kuroi mendoori will continue to support us.
THE GALLO and Members
Last year in November, THE GALLO announced that guitarist Hikaru would be leaving the band. Since then, Nov has been filling in Hikaru’s spot on stage as support guitarist. When Nov was not on stage with THE GALLO, he was working with former Halsion bandmate, shiz, on their two-man band, DADA. However, DADA announced that they will be halting all activities after their live on August 24, and Nov became an official member of THE GALLO the following day.
Although Nov has been THE GALLO’s support guitarist for a little under a year, it looks like he has been well acquainted with the band for quite a while! THE GALLO has seen two guitarists come and go so far, so let’s hope that Nov is here to stay.
