Followup on UNDEUX’s “missing” vocalist.

Here is a followup on the drama concerning UNDEUX’s “missing” vocalist Riku. The band lost contact with him a month ago but noted that he ordered pizza via their chat system. And that was a bit suspicious. You find an earlier post regarding that matter here.

Seems like there’s still problems and I doubt that Riku ever will come back. Rame (ex-Vidoll, ex-Black Gene For The Next Scene) as the president of GLKingdom (the bands label) posted a tweet about the problem and Riku created a twitter account solely to defend himself against the band’s official statement (he didn’t have any twitter account before):

Google Translation:
Thank you very much for supporting us UNDEUX daily. It is Riku.
I am sorry to cause worry to many people this time.

There was an official blog of UNDEUX and an announcement and tweet from the president this time, but since information different from the fact was stated, I will write out my own sentences.

I was told that I could not contact and could not understand my true intention, but my intention to quit the band was reported to both the members and the president from February.

At that time, I properly informed that I will appear in the period of handling things I shot this time and the live we were planning.

Although there was a statement that I wanted to return, I also heard that some candidates for new vocals from members also listened, I was preparing after I left the band was.

I also participate in the recording of things to be released this time about the statement that it can not be contacted from the timing of the new recording. However, at that time unexpected troubles happened and it was not possible to record vocals, and I also decided to contact the president by setting up a lawyer who is an unavoidable agent. Even when members came home, there was no contact in advance, we did not know how many people were coming and we felt our danger, so the police came.

As a result, it is difficult to continue the activity as a band, and I inform it again that I will withdraw, through a lawyer, but there was such an announcement in the official blog without a reply to it being coming .

I thought that the correct information would be described in the official blog, but unsolicited information that is different from the facts was stated and I had no choice but to make such an announcement.

People concerned, for those fans who are cheering for this, it is a misunderstanding situation, I would like to apologize. Riku.

So Riku claims he told the band in February that he wanted to quit but later asked to return but couldn’t since the band already was searching for a new vocalist. When the band went to his house to check on him, Riku got scared and called the police. You can in a text below see that Rame has another version. According to him; Riku told the police that they were threatening him. But they were just worried and had prepared him with a phone call. Lawyers are now involved and Rame states that any more upcoming disagreement will be handled in the courtroom but also that he don’t want to fight anymore.

I will not go into more details since they already do it so well on this page. Please check it out.

Bass: Rame | Black Gene For The Next SceneRame’s post (which now has been deleted from Twitter):

本日彼が発表した内容について文章をそのまま引用させていただき(※印)、私なりの見解と事実を伸べさせていただきます。 またこのようなことでお騒がせいたします事を心の底からお詫び申し上げます。

※まず連絡が取れず私の真意がわからないとのことでしたが、バンドを辞めるという意志表示は二月からメンバーにも社長にも伝えていました。 その際、今回撮影した物を扱う期間や予定していたライブには出演しますということもきちんと伝えていました。

→ こちらについてですが私共も彼から唐突に、ただただもう辞めたい。という意志表示は受けておりました。 その時点でいくら話しても続ける意志は全くなく彼個人の独断でした。 しかし彼が仰る通り、当初は決まっているスケジュールやライブは全て精一杯こなしますとういう事も同時に約束いたしました。 無理やり続けることがお互いにとってもプラスになるとは思えません。私共も彼のその気持ちに免じ、スケジュールをきちんとこなしていただけるのならと許諾いたしました。 しかしながらそのスケジュールやライブの連絡事項もその後は一切応答がありませんでした。 出演するのかしないのか、問いかけにも全く応じない状況を彼自身が作り実際にライブは放棄しております。 この状況では私共には彼の真意がつかめておりませんのでそのように発表させていただいております。

※私の復帰を望んでいるとの記載もありましたが、メンバーからも新しいボーカルの候補も何人か出ている事も聴いており、私がバンドを抜けたあとの準備をしているとのことでした。

→ ここで改めてオフィシャルにて発表された文面をきちんと読んでいただきたいのですが、復帰を望むというのはもう脱退をしている人間に対して使う表現かと思います。 復帰ではなくこの5人で決めたスケジュールはこの5人できちんとこなすと決めたので戻ってきてもらいたいと私共は発表しております。 私共が脱退を許諾した際にもきちんと決まっているスケジュールはこなしますとの意志表明はいただいておりましたので永続的に復帰してもらいたいとは望んではおりません。 また彼が仰る通り、残りの4人に関しましては今後もアンドゥーとして活動をこなして参ります。脱退の許諾した後にメンバーが新たな後継人を探しその後の準備をすることがなぜ問題なのでしょうか。

※新作レコーディングのタイミングから連絡が取れないとの記載についても今回リリース予定の物のレコーディングにも参加しております。しかしその際に予期せぬトラブルが起こりボーカルをレコーディングを行える状況ではなくなってしまい、私もやむを得ず、代理人である弁護士をたて、社長と連絡をとることにいたしました。 自宅にメンバーが来た際にも事前に連絡も無く、だれが何人来ているか状態かもわからず身の危険を感じた為警察の方が来る事態となりました。

→ 実際には、私個人としましてはレコーディング以前から彼とは連絡がつかない状況でした。 レコーディングには参加するとメンバーから伺っておりましたのでその場へ向かい今後の様々な流れなどの話し合いをその現場にてさせていただこうと思っておりました。 正直なところ事務所側としてはそのような流れやプランニングをきちんと立てさせていただかないことにはレコーディングどころではない状況でありました。 レコーディング中ではない他のメンバーもいる前で、私なりの提案と流れを説明し、彼に土下座までしてこの流れで理解してもらえないかと涙ながらに説得と交渉をさせていただきました。 しかしその条件も応じてもらえず、納得がいかないというこで話が決裂したこを予期せぬトラブルと表現しているかのように思えます。 その時に彼は警察にまで通報し私共が脅迫したということを訴えております。しかしながら現場へ来た警官に私共は誰一人そのような指導はうけておらずそのまま彼だけがパトカで帰宅しました。 これが刑事事件になるということであれば私共はしっかりとその罪を償うつもりでおります。 現場にきた警官の方に彼に歌どりだけでもしてもらえないか説得してもらえないですか?と警官の方も巻き込みレコーデイングの継続を懇願いたしました。 しかしその思いもむなしくレコーディングは中断されました。これが彼の仰るレコーディングにも参加した、ということとなります。

先に軽くお伝えしましたが、彼の家に赴く前に携帯で連絡はしております。その証拠も残っております。 だれが何人来ているか状態もわからず身の危険を感じたと仰りますがこちらは全く連絡も応答が取れていない状況です。 むしろ彼が無事なのかどうかの心配もしていました。 そして赴いた際には、メンバーからもきちんと置き手紙も残し、最後まで決めたスケジュールはこなそうよ、みんなも心配しているから、とその想いもこめてポストへ投函させていただきました。 しかしながらその後も何の連絡もございませんでした。

※このような結果、バンドとしての活動の継続が困難であり脱退する旨を改めて弁護士を通じて連絡しているのですがそれに対しての返答が来ていないままオフィシャルブログにもあのような発表がありました。 私は、正しい情報をオフィシャルブログに記載するものと思っておりましたが、事実と異なる一方的な情報を記載されており、このような発表をせざるを得なくなりました。

→ なぜバンドとしての活動の継続が困難なのか私共メンバー含め全く理解できておりません。連絡が取れなくなってからも何度も何度も呼び掛けております。 最後までスケジュールは責任を持ってこなすと約束してくれました。 また弁護士を通じて連絡をいただいているのは事実です。それに対して私はきちんとした形式で通知文を配達記録をつけ送らせていただいております。 したがって証拠として残っているのですが、なぜ返答が来ていないと偽ってまでこのようなことをツイートされたのか理解に苦しみます。 事実と異なることがオフィシャルブログに記載されております、と彼は仰っておりますが事実と異なることは全くないと私が責任を持ってこの文章でお伝えさせていただきました。

私がいま伝えているこの事実は全て立証できるものに基づいてお話しさせていただいております。 この後彼とは正式に法廷の場で争う所存でございます。

メンバー4人も思うことや皆さんにお話、またお伝えしたいことがたくさんあるようですが私共は喧嘩をする気はございません。 この件につきましては私の方からメンバー4人には一切公の場では語らぬように指導させていただきます。

今後もまたなにかございましたら私から正式に発表させていただきます。乱筆乱文で言葉足らずな部分があるやもしれませんがお許しください。

Google Translate:
I will quote the text as it is about what he announced today (※ mark), I will extend my view and facts. I apologize from the bottom of my heart that I will make noises by such things.

* Although it was said that I could not contact and could not understand my true intention, the intention to quit the band was reported to both the members and the president from February. At that time, I properly informed that I will appear in the period that I photographed this time and the live that I was planning.

→ Although we are here, we also want to quit as soon as possible from him. I received a will display. There was absolutely no intention to continue even if I talked at that point at his personal disposition. However, as he says, we also promised to say that we will do all the schedule and live which we have decided at the beginning. I do not think it will be positive for each other to continue forcibly. We also excluded him from that feeling, and allowed us to properly schedule the schedule. However, there was no response after that schedule and live contact matter afterwards. He himself makes a situation that does not respond at all even to whether it does appear or does not actually question and live has actually abandoned. In this situation we are unable to grasp his real intention so we will announce it like that.

* Although there was a statement that I wanted to return, I also heard that some candidates for new vocals are also from members, and I heard that I am preparing after I left the band It was.

→ I’d like you to read the text that was announced again in the official here properly, but I think that wishing for return is an expression for people who are already withdrawing. We decided not to return but we decided that these five people decided to do it properly so we wanted to return. We have expressed a willingness to do the schedule which we have properly decided when we permit leave, so we do not want to have permanent return. Also as he suggests, we will continue to do activities as UNDEUX for the remaining four people. Why is it that the member searches for a new successor and prepares after the permission to withdraw?

* We also participate in the recording of things to be released this time about the description that it can not be contacted from the timing of the new recording. However, at that time unexpected troubles occurred and it became not a situation where you can record vocals, and I decided to contact the president by setting up a lawyer who is an obligation, as a substitute. Even when members arrived at home, there was no contact in advance, nobody knows how many people are coming and I felt my danger, so the police came.

→ In fact, for me personally it was a situation that I could not contact him before recording. Since I was asking from members as I participated in the recording, I was planning to go to that place and let me discuss the future various flows and the like at the scene. To be honest, as for the office side, it was not a situation far from recording to not let such a trend and planning be properly set up. In front of other members who are not recording, I explained my proposal and flow, I talked to him through Takazaka and tearfully persuaded and negotiated as to whether I could understand with this flow. However, I can not accept the condition and it seems that it is expressed as an unexpected trouble that the talk failed because it is not convinced. At that time he reported to the police and appealed that we threatened. However, no one of us was under guidance to the police officers who came to the scene, but he just came home with Pato. If this means that it will be a criminal case, we are going to reimburse our sins firmly. Can not you persuade a police officer who came to the scene if he could just sing a song? I also appealed for the continuation of recoding involving the policeman. However, the thought was vainly interrupted. This means that you participated in the recording he revealed.

I briefly mentioned earlier, but I will contact you by cell phone before going to his house. Evidence remains. I do not know the status of how many people are coming and I hear that I felt my danger but this is a situation where no response has been received at all. I was worried whether he was safe or not. And when I got there, leave the letter neatly from the members, leave the schedule decided till the end, let me post it to the post with the thought that everyone is worried. However, there was no contact even after that.

※ As a result, it is difficult to continue activities as a band, and I am informed again through lawyers that I will withdraw, but there is such an announcement in the official blog without a response to it being coming. did. I thought that the correct information would be described in the official blog, but unsolicited information that is different from the facts was stated and I had no choice but to make such an announcement.

→ I do not understand why it is difficult to continue activities as a band including us members. I have been calling you again and again even after I can not contact you. Until the schedule promised me to do with responsibility. It is also true that we are informed through a lawyer. On the contrary, I am sending a notice message in a neat form with a delivery record. Therefore, although it remains as evidence, I am suffering from understanding why such a thing was tweeted until I falsely thought why the response was not coming. I told you in this sentence responsibly that I do not have anything different from the fact that he said that it is stated in the official blog that things are different from the facts.

I will talk about this fact that I am currently communicating based on what can be proved. After this I will officially contest with him at the courtroom.

There seems to be a lot of things that four members also think, talk to everyone, and I want to tell again but we do not feel like fighting. Regarding this matter, I will guide from 4 people to 4 members so that they do not speak at public places at all.

If I have something in the future I will officially announce it from me. Although there may be a part of insufficient word with randomist sanctuary, please forgive me.

Welcome! This is not an actual news site but a personal blog, run by an ordinary person who loves visual kei. This is my space where I ventilate thoughts and values and shares happenings within the scene. My goal is to make information easy to access and to support artists and movements that I admire. Especially smaller bands that need an extra push in the djungle of major bands. English is not my native tounge so please condone my linguistic mistakes.
