KANA-BOON bassist Iida Yuma to withdraw from the band


It's been announced that KANA-BOON bassist Iida Yuma will be withdrawing from the band.�

Iida had been absent from band activities since June to receive treatment. On the band's official website, he explained, "At the hospital, I was diagnosed with a mental illness and had been taking a break for some time, but I had no clue how many months or years it will take for this illness to go away. I hated thinking that fans and members will have to keep waiting for me, and that KANA-BOON, which I love so much, will be stopping their activities because of me. As such, I felt that it was best that I withdraw from the band." He continued to express, "Thanks to the members and fans who always support me, I was able to spend the best time until the end. Thank you for creating a place for me in KANA-BOON."�

Currently, KANA-BOON is carrying out their activities with a support bassist. Taniguchi Maguro (Vo, G) commented, "Although Iida will no longer be taking part in KANA-BOON's music, the band will continue to live as strong as ever. We will create songs, go on tours, and face the expectations of evolution and transformation."
