MUKURO’s drummer chiaki has decided to depart due to problems with his family and mental health.
In his letter to the band, he explains that his father has lost his job, his mother is worn-out due to over-working, his brother is struggling with a learning disability and chiaki himself has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder (in February). In this letter, chiaki is asking for forgiveness for choosing his family over the band – and if you ask me, no one can expect him to do otherwise right now. Poor guy. (see blog entry here).
MUKURO has decided to not continue without chiaki and will disband after their live on October 28th.
Let’s hope chiaki will overcome all his obstacles (as well as his family) and that we will see these guys entering the stage again one day.
Disband: October 28th 2016
