Envy vocalist quits band

Tuesday, April 05, 2016 2:29 PM PT


Envy vocalist Tetsuya Fukagawa has left the Japanese screamo/post-hardcore band he co-founded in 1992. The group has issued this statement:

"Tetsuya Fukagawa, our vocalist who has been with us since the beginning, has decided to leave the band. The remaining four members, Nobukata Kawai, Dairoku Seki, Masahiro Tobita and Manabu Nakagawa will continue on as envy. We are proud of what we've accomplished over the past twenty years with Tetsu. In consideration of these years and out of respect for all involved, we ask everyone to understand this is a private decision. We wish Tetsu the best of luck and hope for all of his future endeavours to be successful. We will still be playing at the Synchronicity '16 - After Hours show on April 24th, featuring a few of our friends as guest vocalist. We'll be taking some time to concentrate on writing some new music after April. Hope to see you there."

I'm absolutely loving the direction Envy is taking. Yeah, it will take time to get over the fact that Tetsuya f*kagawa is no longer there, but I'm still digging it. They sound like a ERRA/Ghost Atlas hybrid and that's definitely not a bad thing...

I thought Envy was a straight edge band from Buffalo in the 90's.

Nope. Japanese screamo/post-hardcore.
