Polysics Announce US Tour

Kayo, longtime keyboard/voice/guitar/vocoder mastermind for Japanese cult favorites, Polysics, has announced that she will be leaving after the band’s March 14th show in Budokan.

The remaining members of Polysics, Hiro (voice/guitar/programming) Fumi (bass/voice/synthesizer) and Yano (drums), have also announced that they will be going on hiatus following the tour.
