Amid Halloween celebrations last night (or rather, this morning), a notice was posted across THE GALLO members’ social media accounts and OHP announcing the sudden departure of lead guitarist Hikaru.
Though it’s a sudden announcement, at the November 12, 2015 performance at Nagoya HOLIDAY NEXT
Six-stringer Hikaru will leave the band.
We deeply apologize to all of the black hens* and staff supporting us, for this sudden announcement.
Furthermore, THE GALLO will continue activities as four members, and so we’d like to kindly ask for your backing and support.
*THE GALLO’s fans
The announcement was made at midnight, a short time after Hikaru’s Twitter and Ameba accounts were purged. Though the accounts still stand, the only remaining data from the band’s most active social media user is the announcement of his secession. Even his userpics, and on Twitter, his userhead, have been removed from the accounts.
There are a limited number of opportunities remaining to catch the five-member GALLO before Hikaru’s final show —
November 3, 2015 @ Takadanobaba AREA
November 9, 2015 @ Ikebukuro EDGE
November 11, 2015 @ Osaka RUIDO
November 12, 2015 @ Nagoya HOLIDAY NEXT
Also known to make appearances on Instagram and Vine, the guitarist’s Vine account seems to be no more, but you can still catch some of his old posts on Instagram — for now.
We’ll keep you posted on any updates, including member comments, as they come.
