RAVE's Guitarist Mikuru Passed Away
Today, we have extremly sad news for all fans and lovers of visual kei and japanese music.
PS COMPANY band RAVE published an announcement on their OHP about their guitarist Mikuru who took a break from band activities back in August due to a disease.
He was forced to take long-term treatment and fought his illness as good as he could but unfortunately passed away on October 26th at 4:51 AM.
It's kept secret which disease caused his death since Mikuru didn't wish to reveal it.
For his funeral, only close friends and relatives were invited.
However, there will be a flower laying ceremony for fans in Fukuoka where he grew up, as well as in Tokyo on November 14th from 4 PM until 7 PM at DRUM Be-1 and Shibuya ZEAL LINK B1F event space. You can find more details here.
The remaining four members are very sorry for those depressing news.
However, they promise to continue since Mikuru would have wanted them to.
Our hearts go out to his family and friends. May he rest in peace.
