Japanese alternative rock band THE ORAL CIGARETTES will be postponing their four upcoming performances of their 3-month long national tour THE ORAL CIGARETTES Hall Tour 2022 "SUCK MY WORLD" which is supposed to begin on January 24. This is due to three of the rock band's members contracting the COVID-19 virus within the week.


Lead vocal and guitarist Takuya Yamanaka was the first to be diagnosed with the coronavirus on January 13 after experiencing fever the night before. He was then followed by guitarist Shigenobu Suzuki and drummer Masaya Nakanishi which both tested positive. All three members are undergoing medical treatment at home and are recovering after experiencing fatigue and having a fever.

The test result for the remaining member, bass and vocalist Akira Akirakani is yet to be revealed.
