Masashi and Yuki to leave Jupiter

A few months shy of their upcoming “CREATED EQUAL” tour, Jupiter have announced a new–and disheartening–development. At their tour final on April 29th, bassist Masashi and drummer Yuki will be leaving the band. An official statement was left on their OHP, and it was translated on their official Facebook. You can read the message and Masashi and Yuki’s comments below.

Important announcement from Jupiter

We are very sorry to announce the withdrawal of our bass player MASASHI and drummer YUKI. Their final show as Jupiter is Jupiter Tour ~CREATED EQUAL~ Tour final “BLESSING OF THE FUTURE” at Shinjuku ReNY on 29 April 2016.

That said, Jupiter is going to rock each and every scheduled show as the original 5 members with all their force until 29 April 2016.

Thank you for your support and love for Jupiter.

I have come to the conclusion of leaving Jupiter after considering how to take the right balance between playing with Jupiter and expanding my work as a bass player. For me, causing my fellow members problem is the last thing I want to do.

I have experienced a lot and grown up a lot as a bass player since the beginning of this band in the inspiring music, the exciting shows and all the rich moments with my fans all over the world. I’m absolutely filled with gratitude for my fans and my crew for their love and endless support for me.

I’ll keep playing bass guitar and music after my farewell to Jupiter. I hope all of my fans will keep a warm eye on me in addition to their continuous support and love for Jupiter. Thank you.

MASASHI

I have decided to leave Jupiter to be able to expand my own musical activities and challenge my potential as a drummer. That said, I’m going to pour all my energy to every single performance until my last show with Jupiter on 29 April 2016.

All the experiences and knowledge I learned in these 3 years are nothing but my precious treasure. All my fans, my crew and my fellow member of Jupiter, thank you so much for everything. I hope your continuous support and love for Jupiter from now on. Thank you.

YUKI

For those of you who’ll be in Japan next year, their next tour, “~CREATED EQUAL~”, will kick off in February and take place in Shibuya, Osaka and Nagoya for two days each. Tickets will cost ¥4500 to attend, and will go on sale on December 19th. Fanclub tickets are currently on sale.

    Both bassist and drummer leave the group because they want to learn to play their instruments properly? That is what they’re saying, isn’t it? Weird.

      yeah, something is going on with this band, they were better off when they were in Versailles.
      I just wish Versailles didn’t have to disband.

    • tlei

      Yeah it’s definitely weird. I can see two possible reasons for this:
      1. They are not getting enough artistic freedom to show their skill and potential with Teru and Hizaki dominating the song-writing.
      2. Jupiter doesn’t have the strong brand that Kamijo does and they aren’t selling very well compared to what they used to.
