FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND - Gitarren-Besetzungswechsel

 

Gitarrist Darran Smith hat vergangenen Freitag seinen musikalischen Dienst bei FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND quittiert, seinen Posten übernimmt ab sofort Basser Gavin Borrough.

Für dessen Position wiederum wurde Richard Boucher (Ex-Hondo Maclean/The Future) rekrutiert.

Darran über seinen Aussitieg:

"AFTER ALMOST 9 YRS I HAVE DECIDED TO LEAVE THE RANKS OF FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND. I'VE HAD A BRILLIANT TIME WITH THE BAND, WHICH HAS BEEN A JOURNEY FULL OF AMAZING EXPERIENCES THAT WILL BE AWESOME MEMORIES TO KEEP AND CHERISH AND I HAVE NOTHING BUT LOVE AND RESPECT FOR ALL THE BOYS IN THE BAND (PAST & PRESENT) WITHOUT WHOM MY TIME IN THE BAND WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN HALF AS ENJOYABLE!

I WANNA SEND OUT A HUGE THANKS TO EVERYONE THAT I'VE MET ALONG THE WAY THAT HAS WORKED WITH OR ALONGSIDE FUNERAL, AND WOULD ESPECIALLY LIKE TO THANK ALL THE FANS THAT HAVE MADE THIS EXPERIENCE FOR ME SO INCREDIBLE!

WE HAVE A NUMBER OF SHOWS COMING UP IN THE NEAR FUTURE WHICH I WILL BE PLAYING, UP TO AND INCLUDING SONISPHERE, AND I INTEND TO APPROACH THEM NOT ONLY AS A CELEBRATION OF MY TIME IN FUNERAL BUT ALSO OF STEPPING OUT OF THE BAND AND PREPARING TO FACE NEW CHALLENGES AND EXPERIENCES WITH WHATEVER I DO IN THE FUTURE.

MY HEARTFELT GOOD WISHES GO OUT TO THE BOYS IN THE BAND AND KNOW THEY'LL GO ON TO GREATER GLORIES AND SUCCESS!

CHEERS
