Nocturnal Depression has issued the following statement about performing the band's last show of 2011 at the Northern Lights Festival:
"We performed our last gig for 2011 in the Northern Lights Festival in Reichenthal (Austria). This festival made by passionate people was very great. It's intolerable that people tried to find some excuses and spread false rumors towards them. The word was spread that the festival was cancelled, that it was a meeting of Nazis etc.. Since 2 years that we worked with the Northern Lights Festival we never had any problems with them. We never saw/heard/made any political acts at this place. We (Nocturnal Depression) are proud to be a part of this event and support them for the upcoming years.
"We performed a special gig with a 3 pieces line-up. The reason: the night before leaving our hometown for reaching the festival in Austria, Krahne has been admitted in psychiatric hospital and is still there. We decided after several hours of discussion to go to the festival without our brother. Finally we decided that Lord Lokhraed will play bass an hour before going on stage (without any rehearsal at this instrument). We did the best we could, played with our guts and tried to honor our brother Krahne.
"This put the next points : Until we're complete once again, there won't be any gigs. We decided to use a professional booker on ND section, if you want in the future to book Nocturnal Depression, write here : firstname.lastname@example.org For now we are working on 'Spleen Black Metal'..."

"Eye Carver and all the promoters, Our nameless driver/sound engineer, Whiskey Ritual (the official soundtrack of the tour 'Black n' Roll,' Irrlycht, the crowd in all venues and particularly the Austrian one for supporting us as headliner. We raise our sorrowful cup to our glorious danish brothers Angantyr who gave us the honour to make this tour.

The tour with Angantyr will pass following countries: France, Italy, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, Netherlands and Belgium.
"After 6 years of self-hatred in Negation, Krahne (H.Suizid) has decided to leave Nocturnal Depression for personal reasons. So we are looking for a new live session bassist player."
Krahne also commented on his departure:
"I, H.Suizid, took the decision to leave Nocturnal Depression. I did what I wanted and even I'm sure I still got lot of things to discover into ND's music. When I started Nocturnal Depression it was about Black Metal climax in musical landscape. ND is a kind of DSBM band and has to stay this cause this is its personality. But actually I really don't like the way of the actual scene, we're into Black Metal Mind since the beginning so I'm in no way fan or agree with 'open mind towards all music genres and also the coming of the shoegaze in our scene.' Yes, I'm a closed mind and i don't really care about your tolerance and clean voices.
"Things have to end for me like they started. So I will re-record together with Lord Lokhraed 'Suicidal Thoughts' and 'Near to the Stars.' It will be release by Sun & Moon Records. ND will continue under the leading of Lord Lokhraed and the new album 'Spleen Black Metal' is really a turning back to the beginning of DSBM."

"The show in Grenoble with Nargaroth, so the only show at this time for the release of the new album, is cancelled. Reason : owner of the club (Drakk'Art) is scarred and don't want to have some NSBM bands. To make it clear : Nargaroth is not a NSBM band in music, lyrics, attitudes or visuals.
