Just posted on nano.RIPE’s blog their drummer shinn will be parting ways with the group after their November 12th performance at Shibuya QUATTRO! Words from shinn:
“Since the groups formation it has changed members several times. Over time our approach to music has changed little by little so that now there is much difference and in our future direction. After some discussions with members the conclusion was reached for my withdrawal.
I apologize for the suddenness of this during our live tour and thank you to all who support me. While I stop performing with nano.RIPE I will continue my future playing music.
I decided to go a separate way but I will sing on tour until our performance on November 12th.
Thank you, shinn”
