Oh, the drama!
We only recently introduced Xrista, ex-OROCHI Yukimura’s (now Lyo) band, yet it seem there already is trouble! After performing less than a handful of lives, Xrista members announced on their Ameblo blogs yesterday that they have booted vocalist Hyuga from the band for various incidents such as money ‘borrowing’, missing rehearsals, and most importantly not showing up for their March 3rd live.
They have put the following post up as explanation.
An important notice from Xrista
At Xrista’s March 3 live, we suddenly had to perform without a vocalist when we received information that our vocalist Hyuga had been in an accident that very day.
However, today we learned that the information we received from vocalist Hyuga’s agent concerning the accident was proven to be false.
Even from before, there was a problem regarding vocalist Hyuga’s typical behavior.
For the sake of Xrista’s formation, the members sympathized with and supported his decision to change his behavior, but he frequently would be absent from the studio without notice, and because of money problems he repeatedly built up debt with the members of Xrista.
On each of these occasions, we strongly cautioned vocalist Hyuga, and he himself also showed intentions of changing.
However, because of the above-mentioned actions, as well as the falsified information regarding the March 3 live,
we have concluded that vocalist Hyuga has not changed at all, and as of today (March 5) vocalist Hyuga has officially been dismissed.
We would like to express our deepest apologies to all the fans that supported Xrista’s Hyuga, as well as to all the staff concerned.
Also, at our live at Ikebukuro EDGE on April 15th, we will continue moving forward with a new vocalist.
Xrista will continue activities from now on, so please lend us your support.

Thankfully, it seemed the band is ready to move forward with a new vocalist. Information hasn’t been released on who this new person will be, but when we find out so will you!
If you’re interested in seeing then with their new line up, make sure to see them perform at Ikebukuro EDGE on 4/15!
As we announced earlier, OROCHI’s Guitarist Yukimura left the band recently, and it seems he is already preparing a new band!
Yukimuri (who has changed his stagename to Lyo) posted the following on his facebook in English about the creation of his new band.
[Notice of a new band]
This time, I formed a new band Xrista.
I decided to change the name to Lyo(椋).
I will not get used to everyone because it was a familiar name for four years, you should become familiar because little by little the heck♪
I was going to transfer the ameba blog.
New blog should be moved from below.

But I would spend a little time people,
I hope everyone re-register♪
Though no official photos (other than the band’s logo) have been revealed and the OHP has yet to be created, Xrista officially formed on February 1st. What we can tell you is limited due to the nature of the news, but with some heavy research we found out a little more about Xrista.
Vocals: 彪牙 (Hyuga)
Guitar: 椋 (Lyo) guitar
Guitar: れー (Re)

If you’re wondering what this band will look like, don’t worry for too long! According to Lyo, Xrista will be having their first live debut on February 22nd at Ruido K3!
