A lot of lineup changes in the prog world in the pasf few days:
First, bassist Steve Dunn is leaving Also Eden.
Steve says, “It’s time for me to do something different. That’s it. No animosity, post-gig punch-ups or doing the dirty with band WAGs! My thanks and best wishes for the future to Lee, Si, Ian and Rich, (as well as Huw, Dave, Tim, Steve B and Ralvin) and I wish future rumblers the very best. My thanks also to all the wonderful folk who have bought our music, come to see us play, sung our praises on internet radio/podcasts/forums or just passed on kind words, advice and support. It’s been fun! I’m sure the band will build on the wonderful reviews and live performances we’ve had of late as they move further forwards and I’m proud to have been a part of the history.”
Also Marc Atkinson is bowing out of Nine Stones Close because of other commitments.
Nine Stones Close is busy planning a new album and a possible tour for 2013, and Marc was unable to mesh this with his demanding solo schedule.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Marc for his contributions to Nine Stones Close, and wish him all the very best with his solo work and future projects. The search will now begin for a new singer for Nine Stones Close, so watch this space for more details in the coming weeks.
And last, but not least, Andy Sears is leaving Twelfth Night:
