Aoi of Ayabie reveals his feelings about the withdrawal of four members
Previously, we reported that 4 members of visual-kei band, Ayabie, will leave the group without Aoi (Vo.), and Aoi recently made a blog entry on the 9th, and wrote about his feelings.
Below is what Aoi wrote:
“Dear everyone (fans),
I’m sorry for late report from me. Although I kind of knew, I could not take their decision. I could not say a word, and my tears didn’t stop as I was childish.
As to the withdrawal of the four members, we have talked about it many many times. If I lost Ayabie, I was sure I would also lose the core of my life. However, I am the only member of Ayabie now. I cannot think about what to do for the future, but to me, I cannot think of Ayabie without Aoi, Yumehito, Takehito, Intetsu, and Kenzo. I can’t continue as Ayabie by myself, nor getting new members.
I’m thinking about how I can repay you (fans). Even if I’m alone, I want to hold a last live (performance) as Ayabie to apologize to you. I’m sorry for betraying your warm feelings about us.
I heard they (other four members) are making a new band. Although I’m not a part of it, I will sure want to cheer for them, because it’s a music by people I love.
I will make an announcement about the future as soon as possible. I will try to go see you no matter what.Thank you for loving Ayabie. “Thank you” is the only word I can say to you now.
I’m sorry for what happened. I am really sorry. Thank you for the many comments. I read all of them, and it made me feel that I’m not alone. I shouldn’t betray your love. You gave me courage to stand up.
Let me say it one more time,
Thank you very much.”
On the official blog of Aoi, it says that the future of Ayabie has not been decided yet. Although there are not many choices left, Aoi still didn’t want to say “disbandment” yet.
