After 17 years as a core member of ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE & THE MELTING PARAISO U.F.O., Atsushi Tsuyama (bass, voice, cosmic joker) has announced that he will retire from the group at the end of 2015.
Tsuyama will continue to be a member of Acid Mothers Temple SWR, but we expect that he will no longer play any central role in either recordings or tours by ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE & THE MELTING PARAISO U.F.O. He will of course continue his own musical activities both solo and with own group, Psyche Bugyo.
This year’s tour will therefore be the last one by ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE & THE MELTING PARAISO U.F.O. that Tsuyama will participate in. Next year, we plan to recruit a new bassist and continue with the group. Further details will be announced in due course.
