NOCTURNAL BLOODLUST cancelled its concerts since new member Lin is on suspicion of violating cannabis rights.
On August 1st he was caught with the illegal drug and investigations on the matter are currently ongoing. Therefore the band cancelled its performance at Shibuya WWW-X on August 3rd.
It was supposed to be their comeback live and first performance this year since the band went on hiatus after both guitarists left the band due to financial issues last December.
Guitarist Lin just joined the band a few months ago but it's questionable if he will stay a member of it. For now the band didn't reveal any details or plans for the future.
Except for this: unfortunately not only the performance tomorrow but also their performance on August 12th as well as their headliner tour in September and all instore events have been cancelled.
Possessing cannabis is a serious issue in Japan. Various bands and also Jpop artists such as ex-KAT-TUN's Junnosuke Taguchi, Hip hop duo Hilcrhyme or Visual Kei band lynch. had to deal with the consequences.
