It's been announced that SILENT SIREN's drummer Hinanchu, also known as Umemura Hinako, will be withdrawing from the band.
Since SILENT SIREN formed in 2010, Umemura had served as the band's leader. According to the band's official website, Umemura wanted to end her activities as SILENT SIREN's drummer in order to pursue a new path. She commented, "To me, SILENT SIREN is the most invaluable and precious thing. It's my youth. When I turned 30 years old, I started thinking about my way of life as a woman and felt strongly to choose a new path. Taking the countless memories and experiences I've gained until now in SILENT SIREN, I will take a new path that is yet to be seen."
Umemura's activities in SILENT SIREN will end on September 25 after their live concert at Hibiya Open-Air Concert Hall.
