Just days after writing about Moi dix Mois’ upcoming overseas show in Russia, we have sad news for you today.
On May 19th, it was revealed that Moi dix Mois’ guitarist/vocalist K passed away suddenly in his home. While details are scarce, the band has already released an official statement on their website. You can read the translated version below, translated by yours truly:
We must make a sudden, sad announcement.
Today, we received word from K’s parents that the Moi dix Mois project member passed away in his home.
We do not have the full details, but it goes without saying that because of its suddenness, both members and staff are still struggling to process the information.
Due to the circumstances, we will not be able to carry out our May 24th live at duo MUSIC EXCHANGE.
We are extremely sorry to those who were looking forward to the show. Please await further details concerning future plans.
Furthermore, due to the wishes of K’s family, only close friends and family members will be permitted to attend his wake and funeral.
We humbly thank you for your continued support.
