Vocalist Ryo Kinoshita Exits Crystal Lake

Vocalist Ryo Kinoshita has announced his departure from Crystal Lake. The band are currently holding open auditions to find a replacement.

Kinoshita issued the following statement:

“I have decided to leave Crystal Lake.

I sincerely apologize to all the fans and everyone involved for whom I have caused a great deal of trouble since the hiatus from September of last year.

As previously mentioned in the hiatus announcement last year, I have an illness known as adjustment disorder, and I have decided that it will be extremely difficult for me to continue as a member of the band in the future.

It was certainly not an easy decision, but I believe I made the best choice by taking the time to reflect on myself. I struggled for 10 years and continued to fight. I didn’t have many allies and I relied only on myself and the voices of the fans.

I have been suffering from adjustment disorder for about 5 years. Some days I can’t sleep, some days I can only sleep. Sometimes everything becomes pitch black and you can’t move like a corpse. There were many times when I couldn’t stop crying before a live show.

But I am proud of what Crystal Lake has achieved around the world and what we have achieved with the help of our crew, staff and everyone.

Crystal Lake has been the number one live band in the world for the past decade, without a doubt.

Thank you very much to all the fans who supported me during the 10 years I was around.

Ryo.”
