Blu-BiLLioN's leader and drummer Seika will be undergoing surgery in February 2019 to treat dystonia in his legs.
As a result of the medical treatment he will be receiving, the band will be going on hiatus after its activities in January are completed. The hiatus is supposed to be temporary, though the band does not know when it will be able to resume activities.
Seika was diagnosed with dystonia, a condition characterized by the involuntary muscle contractions of the affected body parts. The condition has been getting progressively worse, inhibiting his ability to play the drums.
Initially, Seika was able to compensate for the condition by using his left foot during times when his right foot would not function properly. However, the condition has begun affecting his left foot as well, leaving him unable to play at all when conditions are at its worst.
Blu-BiLLioN will be going on nationwide tour titled "Blu-BiLLioN TOUR17-18-19「Strive for EDEN -Saishu Shou」". The tour starts November 10 and ends January 6.
