Bisheriger Sänger Kasper Thomsen und RAUNCHY gehen ab sofort getrennte Wege. Die Trennung verlief in freundschaftlich und in gegenseitigem Einvernehmen. Das gab die Modern Metal-Band vergangene Woche in einem Statement bekannt. Kaspers Nachfolger ist mit Mike Semesky bereits gefunden. Die Schweden schreiben derzeit an neuem Material und wollen noch dieses Jahr ins Studio gehen, um den Nachfolger von A Discord Electric aufzunehmen.
Das Statement von Kasper Thomsen im Original:
Dear friends, It is with a saddened heart I write these words to you. From this day I will no longer be a part of the band. It is solely my own decision, and there are absolutely no hard feelings between me and my brothers in the band.
Playing with my brothers for almost nine years has been nothing but extraordinary; we have released excellent albums, we have toured most of the world, we´ve played the biggest festivals and I´ve been privileged enough to be a part of it all. Wow, what a rush it has been! But every good thing must come to an end, and I feel it is time for me to step down and rest with all my good memories.
I don´t know what the future will bring, but I´m certain it holds new possibilities and new adventures for me and my family. I want to thank my brothers in the band for this amazing journey and for always believing in me – and I want to thank all of our fans for their endless support.
Even though I´m no longer a part of this endeavor the band will continue to write a crushing new record for you to enjoy in a not so distant future. Please welcome the new man onboard as warmly as you welcomed me – and please continue to support the band with all of your heart – that´s all I wish for.
