AMARANYX and Project "PSYCHE" Stop All Activities

AMARANYX and Project "PSYCHE" Stop All Activities
AMARANYX and the members' project "PSYCHE" will stop all activities this June.

In December AMARANYX' guitarist Naoto left the band and we actually hoped to bring you better news this year but unfortunately we have sad news again. On January 1st AMARANYX went on hiatus but instead of going separated ways the remaining members decided to play together again and started their project "PSYCHE". Unfortunately this project will last only six months. On June 29th they will perform at Ash OSAKA and cease activities after that live - and AMARANYX will disband the same day. 
There are three more lives where you can see the band live: On June 26th in Tokyo, on June 27th in Nagoya and the last live on June 29th in Osaka.

Purple Stone - Vocalist Keiya Halts Activities Due to Illness

Vocalist Keiya of Osaka-based visual kei band Purple Stone has temporarily left the group last month due to an illness.

A statement on the official HP says:

“We sincerely thank you for always supporting Purple Stone. At this time, we have a very important notice. Within the first ten days in March, it was brought to our attention that the bad conditions of vocalist Keiya’s throat had worsened, after receiving a report of his physician’s examination and evaluations. His results list  a virus called ‘left-sided recurrent nerve paralysis.’ After looking over several other patients’ conditions and results,  it was decided that further medical treatment together with rest and follow-up observations are necessary. 
After a meeting between band and staff, it was decided that for the time being, the band will continue its live schedule with members GAK and Fuma performing as a duo, so Keiya can devote himself to his treatment.

To all the fans and everyone involved with the band, we extend our deepest apologies for any trouble this has caused, and for making you worry.

Keiya himself has stated he wants to get better and make his comeback as soon as possible.
We hope you understand, and pray you continue to watch over Keiya as he recovers.

Members of Purple Stone and Staff”

Keiya issued a statement of his own on his official blog, once again apologizing for the inconvenience and going into more detail about his condition and his treatments, saying “I want to overcome this and return to you all as soon as possible, so please wait for me.”

Although he cannot participate in Purple Stone’s current live activities, he is keeping in good spirits by keeping active with fans on Twitter, and posting photos of fan mail and get-well cards received during the live shows.
