Artemis, whose current lineup has been active since October 2014, has not had the easiest ride. They changed vocalists at the beginning of 2016, and all seemed well for a while. Then, at the beginning of August, new vocalist Bunji announced his intentions to leave the band following their show on September 17th. Artemis planned on entering an activity pause following his departure.
However, things have only kept spiraling downward. An additional three members–Nagi, Hiroya, and Zoe–have announced their official departure from the band on the same day as Bunji.
That means the only remaining member is guitarist Yuki. He has kept up a steady stream of Tweets about the impending departures and hiatus on his Twitter account. There doesn’t seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel just yet, but Yuki may continue to play guitar in the future. After all, Artemis has been together under a different lineup since 2008.
