~Departure of bassist kai and drummer reizi announcement~
Thank you for your continued support of DEXCORE.
This is an extremely sudden announcement, but today we are sorry to announce the departure of bassist kai and drummer reizi. From the bottom of our hearts, we express our sincerest apologies to our fans and all the people involved in the band’s activities.
In regards to bassist kai:
Despite receiving proper medical care due to the deterioration of his health condition since the beginning of autumn without any impact on the band’s activities, his symptoms eventually got worse, affecting significantly his body and mind. It led to additional anxiety that quickly requires further medical treatment according to the doctor’s diagnosis and instructions. After several discussions with kai, we have suddenly decided that he will leave the band before the end of the year.
In regards to drummer reizi:
reizi has recently mentioned his desire to face new challenges that aren’t related to music, which appear to be extremely difficult to combine with the band’s activities. After some discussions with him, we have decided that reizi will leave the band at the same time as bassist kai.
The current lineup will continue until the show on December 27, 2022. kai and reizi will sadly leave DEXCORE after it, but we are looking forward to your support until the end.
Once again we deeply apologize for the inconvenience caused by this sudden announcement to our fans who keep supporting us for such a long time. We are hoping for your unwavering support and encouragement from now on.
We will communicate about shows from December 27 and the new live schedule, and keep going with future support members. DEXCORE will keep striving to reach as many people as possible with our music.
