Read the translated announcement and statement from the band below.
Thank you for always supporting Vorchaos.
As of June 6, 2021, guitarist Kaz will be leaving Vorchaos and we will be taking a new form.
We are terribly sorry for the sudden announcement.
From here on out, Vorchaos will continue as a four person band and we hope for your continued support in the future.
I will be stepping away from Vorchaos from June 6, 2021.
In 2020, I ended my time as representative and the band began a new chapter.
After this, in its new shape, the band and I had a major disagreement regarding the direction we were heading in, and after discussing the issue last year, it was decided that it was in our best interests to walk separate paths.
I’m sorry to all of you who were waiting for the five of us to continue activities in the future.
This will not be a step backwards. It’s a decision that was made looking forwards, and I would be grateful for your understanding. I’ve been a member of Vorchaos for more than 10 years, since the beginning in December 2009 and I was only able to make it this far thanks to our fans, the other members and the staff who lent us their strength.
I have so many happy memories, and have gained so much from this time. As Kaz from Vorchaos, thank you so much for everything. As for me, in the future, there are still many things that I want to do and have yet to achieve. While I work on those, I would like to continue making music and expressing myself in a way that reaches all of you.
I look forward to seeing what the future holds for Vorchaos, the same as the fans.
Last but not least, I hope that you continue to give your support and encouragement to both myself, and to the new Vorchaos. Let’s meet again soon.
Thank you so much!
