It's been announced that visual kei band nurié was recently involved in a traffic accident. Sadly, bassist Takanashi Yahiro has passed away, and the other members have sustained injuries.
According to the announcement, the members were traveling on the Shin Tomei Expressway when they were struck from behind by a truck. They were all transported to the hospital, and despite the doctor's efforts, Takanashi could not be saved. The other three members have bruises all over their bodies, but no abnormalities were detected after a CT scan.
Consequently, nurié's concert on December 8 at Higashi Koenji 20000 Denatsu was cancelled. While they are set to release their third single "RooM-6-" on January 5, details on their future activities will be announced at a later date.
We would like to express our deepest condolences to the band as well as family and friends of Takanashi. May he rest in peace.
