There is some exciting news in the world of Shonen Knife, this month our bassist Ritsuko will be going on maternity leave. Mother and baby are in good health. We are praying for her safe delivery and quick return to the band.
For Shonen Knife's US Tour 2015 in June w/ CJ Ramone, original member Atsuko will be joining the band as bassist for the shows. It will be a unique opportunity for US fans to see Atsuko performing on bass for the first time in nearly a decade in the US.
Also, for the upcoming show on May 31st at Fandango, Osaka and our annual 712 DAY PARTY tour in Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka, our friend NARU will play the bass.
Thank you very much for your support and encouragement.
I have a baby on the way!!!
Am I following similar "got pregnant stories" frequently made public recently in the gossip columns? No!! Mine is the real happy love story!!
I am very happy now, even though I will miss the upcoming North American tour. I am grateful to Atsuko-san for rejoining Shonen Knife in the upcoming tour.
Also, I know that Naru-san is the most charming and talented bassist who will take my part from now on. I am very happy to recall that I have been given a part in the activities of Shonen Knife together with the charming members and staff of Shonen Knife. I do hope I will have a chance someday to return to the stage and perform in front of the enthusiastic Shonen Knife fans.
I will remain unchanged as one of the most dedicated fans of Shonen Knife.
Thank you. Ritsuko

" Kill us to do this, but we must post pone tonights show due to a medical emergency. I have nodules and if I were to do another show tonight i could possibly lose my voice for a very very long time. Another date will be set as soon as possible and we will see you soon for an amazing show. You guys killed it last night "And it was apparent early on that 20 year-old singer Chloe Chaidez was battling through the loss of her voice which was noticeable during her acoustic performance of "Kill The Light." But other than her vocal problems, Chloe gave it her all, playing to a hometown crowd that lifted her and carried her through (literally) the night, playing older songs as well as new songs from their debut album while also performing covers of David Bowie's "Heroes" and "Purple Rain" by Prince.
