Jupiter Saying Goodbye to Two Members

An official message was shared in Japanese and English, through Jupiter's official Facebook page, announcing that bassist Masashi and drummer Yuki are both leaving the band after their ~CREATED EQUAL~ tour final on April 29th. Before Jupiter, Masashi and Yuki both were members of the band Versailles, along with guitarists Teru and Hizaki, when in 2012 an indefinite hiatus was announced for the group and the four moved on together to form Jupiter. This separation is the parting of a longstanding partnership of musicians. 

Both members shared personal messages about their decisions, expressing that they are leaving on good terms with the other members and moving on to pursue new experiences as musicians.

Message from MASASHI 

I have come to the conclusion of leaving Jupiter after considering how to take the right balance between playing with Jupiter and expanding my work as a bass player. For me, causing my fellow members problem is the last thing I want to do.     I have experienced a lot and grown up a lot as a bass player since the beginning of this band in the inspiring music, the exciting shows and all the rich moments with my fans all over the world. I’m absolutely filled with gratitude for my fans and my crew for their love and endless support for me. I’ll keep playing bass guitar and music after my farewell to Jupiter. I hope all of my fans will keep a warm eye on me in addition to their continuous support and love for Jupiter. Thank you. (MASASHI / Jupiter)

Message from YUKI 

I have decided to leave Jupiter to be able to expand my own musical activities and challenge my potential as a drummer. That said, I’m going to pour all my energy to every single performance until my last show with Jupiter on 29 April 2016. All the experiences and knowledge I learned in these 3 years are nothing but my precious treasure. All my fans, my crew and my fellow member of Jupiter, thank you so much for everything. I hope your continuous support and love for Jupiter from now on. Thank you.  (YUKI / Jupiter)
