After fighting esophageal cancer for almost two years, KOJI (ALICE IN MENSWEAR, ex-ALvino, La’cryma Christi) has passed away in his sleep on 4/15 at the age of 49. A funeral was held by his family.
To respect his wish for michi. to sing no matter what happens, vocalist michi. performed at the band’s live on 4/17 at Akabane Reny alpha. ALICE IN MENSWEAR will still continue activities, but not as frequently as before.
Too young! I’ve been really enjoying La’cryma lately…
Damn, so young. I haven’t been following his projects after La’cryma but what a legend!
A legend has passed. RIP.
Damn. La’cryma were one of the first bands I came across when I was first discovering Visual Kei. They were always one of the bands I’d turn to when I felt like listening to something 90s-ish. Sad to see him go.
This is really sad… rest in peace
I feel sad just reading this, he died too early.
I hope he can rest well in peace now.
La’cryma was definitely solid band. Many very interesting songs… His music will be remember for sure.
Yup. I enjoy their prog rock gems. Sculpture of Time is my favorite album.
