Back-on’s new drummer – Icchan!

As part of the March 26th 2007 breaking news, Back-on have announced that they have a new drummer – Icchan! :) Icchan has actually been working with Back-on since October of last year as the support or back-up drummer to Macchin, but now he has risen up to be a full band member in his own right! So, a huge welcome to Icchan!

Welcome to Icchan

Icchan wrote a message to the fans:

どーも!! 新しくBACK-ON のメンバーに加わりましたICCHANです。
ライブでは去年の10月から叩いているから知っている人もいるかもしれませんが、この度、正式にメンバーとして活動することになりました!
BACK-ONとは元々BAND同士での知り合いで、その時、まさか自分がBACK-ONに入るとは思ってもみませんでした。今はもうバッチリBACK-ONです!!
MACCHINの後を受け継いだわけですが、MACCHINが築き上げてくれたBACK-ONサウンド、歴史を汚すことが絶対ないようにメンバーや関係者のみなさんとで協力して頑張っていきます!!
そして、新しく生まれ変わったBACK-ONを1人でも多くの人たちに見てほしいし聴いてほしいです。
こんな最高のメンバーと音楽ができる幸せを噛みしめながら一歩一歩前に進んで行こうと思います。
ファンのみんなに1日でも早くなじめるように頑張っていくのでかまってやって下さい。

みんなでBACK-ONを盛り上げていきましょう、よろしくお願いします!!

This can be very badly translated to:

Domo! This is Icchan, the new member of Back-on. It could be that some people already know of me from the live performances since October, but this time, I have officially become a member of the band!

At the time I didn’t think (not sure what the babelfish was trying to say here) that I’d be part of the band when we first met, but now I’m part of the band, successfully succeeding Macchin. But Macchin helped create Back-on’s musical style, so (something about a dirty history? but working together)

I hope that lots of people want to see the new Back-on and listen to their new style of music.

I’d like to move forward, step by step with (such amazing?) band members and musical talent. Because… (not sure what’s going on here again)

Please continue to support Back-on! I am pleased to meet you!!

Apologies for the rubbish translation but to make up somewhat… I’m currently in the process of updating the Band Members with Icchan‘s profile.

p/s: If you can correct this translation, please let me know!
