Two members leave Art-School


Two original members of Art-School are leaving, the band’s official site announced. Guitarist Ooyama Shun cited fatigue as his reason for leaving, while bassist Hinata Hidekazu announced his intention to pursue other projects. Hinata recently recorded with ex-Number Girl Mukai Shuutoku’s new band, Zazen Boys. The remaining members of the 4-piece band intend to continue, but in what form has yet to be determined. Ooyama and Hinata will perform on the band’s remaining tour dates this year.
