Bassist and rapper Ryuji Kobayashi of DISH// has withdrawn from the group, natalie reports.
“We reached this conclusion after multiple internal meetings,” management wrote on the group’s official website in an official statement.
The pop/rock band’s upcoming event tour set to start in April, titled “Geki Haru!! Rock’n Roll Dance Dance Kakumei,” will be carried out as scheduled with the four remaining members, though the option to refund tickets will be made available.
“DISH// is going to be active as four people in the future,” the group writes. “We will continue our path forward without hesitation, so please continue supporting us.“
Kobayashi has been a member of DISH// since the group’s inception in 2011.
