allKuroyuri to Kage announced that guitarist Koyomi and drummer Mutsuki will be leaving the band. Their March 30th live show will be their last with the current line up. But fear not, because April 1st will be their first show with their new lineup. It always sucks when members leave, but let hope everyone the best and hope the band stays together. J-Rock bands (especially) Visual-kei, have a tendency to disband a lot and form new bands quickly.

You may notice the Lead singers voice from the Tokyo Ghoul opening “Unravel”. Ling Tosite Sigure is nothing but awesome sauce. The trio formed in 2002 and has been making crazy progressive indie rock since then. TK’s voice is very unique and mesmerizing. Sort of reminds me of Brian Aubert of Silversun Pickups. Their music is a non-stop ride of awesome guitar rifts and fast high pitched vocals. Check out the song Monster off the album i’mperfect after a break. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
