After two amazing shows together and not much deliberation, Kyle and The College Try are pleased to announced a new lead guitarist. His positive attitude both on and off stage are driving force for the band, and his love for music and impeccable style are brought to life in our music. Please join us in welcoming Yusuke Kakuta to the fold.

大盛況に終わった2本の野外ライブも終わり、メンバー間で特に討議を重ねる必要もなく、まるで必然であったかのようにKyle and The College Tryの新ギタリストの加入を発表できることを、大変嬉しく思います。

New Developments

The boys in Akita

We want to make you all aware of the secession of the Guitarist of Kyle and The College Try. We’ve been having various meetings and discussions regarding our bands direction, recording and so on. As a result, Guitarist Yuki has made up his mind to quit the band. We all know that now is a very important time for us, but don’t worry. Despite this set back the rest of us have not lost our motivation and know exactly where we’re heading. We have continued with our meetings and as of now we have not yet decided if we will accept a new guitarist or continue on as we are. Also, we will accept any addition if it creates a positive effect, regardless of the kind of instrument you play, your age, nationality or sex. Last of all, we are sorry if this dissapoints you. But we promise to improve more than ever, and to create the best CD we can for you.

Howdy y’all,
As you know yuki has decided to leave the band. His departure is an amicable one. On behalf of the band, we thank him for his hard work in getting us to where we are now, and wish him the best of luck in getting to where he wants to be as a musician. We are still figuring out what this means for the recording process, as well as for the future of our music. As of now, we are open to anything and everything! if you have suggestions or just words of support (we love compliments!) please don’t hesitate to send them our way. Thanks again to all of you who make this possible. we wouldn’t be where we are without you!

Adding some keys!

New band member Shinjiro Hamajima will be debuting at our October 15th show as a master of the keys and supporting vocals. We’ve been hard at work doing the best we can to create even more depth to our music, and are stoked to be adding a keyboardist.

We’ve also been seriously talking about recording our very first album, but we’re all a bit poor and trying to figure out exactly how it’s gonna happen. Be patient! We will do it as soon as we can!

Until then, looking forward to seeing everyone on October 9th!
