GLORYHAMMER - PART WAYS WITH LEAD SINGER
Yesterday, British power metallers of Gloryhammer unveiled via their social medias that their lead singer, Thomas Laszlo Winkler, is out of the band. More can be read below.
The band's statement reads as follows: "We regret to announce that Thomas Winkler is no longer a member of Gloryhammer. All upcoming shows (including the UK Tour with Alestorm) will continue as planned, with a new vocalist. For the Eternal Glory of Dundee."
Winkler issued this statement on his Instagram: "Dear friends and fans of Gloryhammer, this morning I received an e-mail from the band, informing me that they want to part ways with me. As a reason they mentioned disagreements on business and organizational matters.
"I am at a loss for words. The only thing I can say is that I regard this as a bad decision for every party involved - the band as well as myself, and especially you, the fans. It's hard to believe that our concert at Bloodstock Festival last Sunday suddenly turns out to be our last show together.
"After getting used to this new situation, I promise you that I will use the split as a chance to embark on a quest to new musical shores in the future, still to be settled in the rock and metal realm.
"In the meantime, I will keep you updated and hope you stay in touch. I appreciate the great support you gave me over the last ten years. Without you, this wouldn't have been the same."
