BugLug's vocalist Issei made his comeback on stage after suffering from severe head injury.
Yesterday, on January 7th several bands performed at TOKYO DOME CITY HALL - among them also Visual Kei band BugLug. It was the first time also vocalist Issei stood on stage with his band together again after taking a break from band activities for eight months. But not only stood he in front of his fans again, he also announced that BugLug will perform at famous Nippon Budokan on May 7th, 2017 for the very first time - exactly one year after his accident. Moreover, on April 5th the band will release a best album titled "zesshou ~Best of BugLug~".
On May 7th 2016 Issei suffered severe injuries after falling down the stairs and hitting his head very hard. He was rushed to a hospital for emergency surgery and had to stay there for 2 1/2 months. In the latest documentary BugLug uploaded to youtube they explain that after the accident it was impossible to say what effect the injury would have on Issei. It was unclear if he can stand on stage ever again or if he will even survive the accident. Luckily Issei is doing well and will continue band activities as of this spring.
