渉(Wataru) will leave Liphlich !

Recommended Posts

From what I can understand, the album "SMELL STAR" which should have been released in July was delayed.

The band have been having some troubles with 渉(Wataru) for one year but  from 2018.04.08, it worsened. In February 2018, they tried to take the time to solve the problem but it was unsuccessful.

I think that this part tells that they have been struggling speaking with him since that date and they do not know how long it will take him to confide in the other members.

"渉くんが自分の言葉で発言、発信できるまでにどれくらい時間がかかるかも分かりません。

しかし彼自身が自分で向き合わなければならないことですし、僕らも彼に向き合っていくしかありません。

彼の味方であろうと思っています。"

This problem affected the other members, staff...

Kuga feels that Wataru is overburdened with expectations, responsability, worry, and disappointment

They are considering to go on a hiatus/disband if the current problems do not resolve. 

 

The following lives will be carried out :

・8月19日 高田馬場AREA 

・8月25日 umeda TRAD 

・8月26日 名古屋E.L.L   

・9月9日  東京湾レディークリスタル

・9月22日 福岡博多湾マリエラ

・9月24日 神戸港オーシャンプリンス

・10月6日 大阪湾サンタマリア

・10月14日 横浜港マリンシャトル

・11月23日 タッキーバースデーライブ

・11月25日 こばやんバースデーライブ

It seems that Wataru told them not really want to continue with the band and that he doesn't really want (yet) to speak about it. 

 

However because of this they are considering a disbandment or a break if the current problem doesn't resolve. 

The live of August 19th will be performed without Wataru.  However the dates after will be with all 4 members. 

 

 

So, they are still in contact.

Yeah,

 

 

Also I guess this means:

8月19日公演のみ、僕1人で弾き語りライブをやります。

それ以外はLIPHLICH4人での公演になります。

11月23日と11月25日公演の詳細については追って発表します。

 

8/19 will be played with us alone.   (So I'm guessing with 3 members) <- wrong

8/19 will be a SOLO live.   <- (correct)

Aside from this (live) LIPHLICH will play with 4 members

For 11/23 and 11/25 details will be yet announced.

Oh, I thought that "僕1人で弾き語りライブをやります。" meant that 久我(Kuga) will be the only member present at this live.

Oh sorry, my wrong then... o.o //  (I thought it was posted on the official blog...)

 

So then the other lives are scheduled as LIPHLICH, 4 members?

Anyway, I tried to translate his message, can have some slight translation mistakes, and keep in mind, English isn't also my first language.

Also I checked the band twitter back just now.

And it also seems as written here that there was a silence since February until April 8th, and then after April 8th, there was again nothing announced. However they played their oneman live at 6/13, but not much tweets before and after...

To all or fans,

We are sorry that the album for July is delayed without giving any announcement.

 

To be honest,
We are currently in a very difficult band situation.

It's about Wataru.

 

Already since last year Wataru has trouble with facing LIPHLICH.

Since then until February this year, we noticed that it was necessary for Wataru (and for everyone) to take a little break for 2 months.

That's why we did hold the O-EAST live on April 8th.

However since that live the situation turned downwards into a bad direction, even if we talked with each other in the studio. the situation became steady.

 

It doesn't affect not us alone, but also staff and stakeholders,
All releases and our future schedules got messed up.

 

I already know Wateru for 15 years and he actually isn't such person.
That's why I'm worried as much iritated too.

I can't talk more about it, because it's our personal matter.

 

But for Wataru, him being a person, bassist, artist, LIPLICH member,
I have fully faith in him.

But now I feel that for Wataru everything* has become a burden. 

In the worst case, we will take a break or disband.

 

The current schedule is: 

・8月19日 高田馬場AREA 久我(Kuga) SOLO

・8月25日 umeda TRAD 

・8月26日 名古屋E.L.L   

・9月9日  東京湾レディークリスタル

・9月22日 福岡博多湾マリエラ

・9月24日 神戸港オーシャンプリンス

・10月6日 大阪湾サンタマリア

・10月14日 横浜港マリンシャトル

・11月23日 タッキーバースデーライブ

・11月25日 こばやんバースデーライブ

 

8/19 will be a SOLO live. (久我(Kuga) solo live)
Aside from this (live) LIPHLICH will play with 4 members
For 11/23 and 11/25 details will be yet announced. 

 

I don't know when and if Wataru will speak for his own.

However he has to face himself and we have to face him.

Whatever happens, I guess I be on his side. 

 

We are thinking about the future of LIPHLICH and Wataru,
How our future looks like cannot be told yet.

We are very sorry, to worry all our fans,

Please keep an eye on us. 

 

*everything: expectations, love, responsibility, worry, disappointment.

Looks like they're not going on hiatus or anything - they announced that they're playing monthly shows at Takadanobaba AREA from April to December. I wonder if they're going to have a support bassist or if they already found someone new?

The band is looking for a new bassist ! They would like someone who loves make-up, who has high aspirations and high confidence. If you apply for the job, you can send them some of your bass recordings.
