Gretel fans may be surprised to see a certain someone missing from the band – and we’re not exactly sure why.
About a week ago, Gretel posted a very short announcement saying that guitarist sinku has left the band. Read the announcement for yourself below (translated by yours truly):
An Announcement from Gretel
Thank you for your continued support for Gretel.
This is a sudden announcement, but due to his personal wishes, guitarist sinku will be leaving the band after today.
We will make an announcement concerning our activities from now on in a few days.
Please continue to support Gretel.
sinku’s existence on the OHP itself has already been erased, so as for a comment for the man himself, it remains to be seen anywhere. The guitarist has quite a band history dating back as far as 2004, but it is unclear as to whether or not he will be continuing on with another band. I guess we’ll have to wait and see, right?
For now, the PC version of the OHP is down. The mobile site lists a few lives for 2014 so far, but it is unclear when those were posted or if those are still valid dates. Keep checking back on their OHP for more info!
Has this dampened your holiday spirits, Gretel fans? What do you think happened to sinku? Let us know your suspicions with a comment or two!
