FIREFORCE announce line-up change
Fireforce have two new band members: First of all drummer Sepp Coeck replaces Christophe De Combe, who resigned due to personal reasons. The second newcomer is guitarist Thierry van der Zanden, who replaces Yves Vermeersch (see his statement below). We wish them both good luck in the band and the metal will rage on! Come and see them at the Fireforce European tour with Mystic Prophecy and Crystal Tears. Find the tourdates at the site!
“It is with regret that I have to announce my departure from Fireforce.
I’ve had great moments, gigs and experiences and have met some awesome people on the road, but due to personal circumstances I can no longer guarantee my 100% dedication to the band.
After almost one and a half years of touring with these guys + releasing a new album, it’s clear to me that Fireforce is ready for the big leagues and thus needs full devotion from all its musicians to keep pushing forward. While it’s been a very hard decision for me, it was the right one to make in the band’s best interest and so I’ve passed the torch to a great and talented guitarist: Thierry van der Zanden.
I want to thank my brothers from FF for all the great times we shared and for their understanding (From the bottom of my heart, I wish you all the best in the future!), the crew, the wives, R.D. Liapakis and Christian Schmid for their great work on producing the “Deathbringer” album and last but definitely not least, all you guys and girls I have met during my time with the band! You all Rock!!
As for me, I’m crawling back in my studio to see what the future will bring…
