Halcyon Way has launched a new crowd funding campaign via IndieGoGo to help with the costs of a new music video, album, and tour. The band comments:

"Hello everyone! There's lots going on in the HW camp and we are asking for all of our fans' support. We are filming a new video in July, mixing our new album as we speak, and we are about to announce a pretty major tour.

Halcyon Way Parts Way With Guitarist

Gerogia based progressive metal act Halcyon Way has parted ways with rhythm guitarist Zane, who left the band on amicable terms. The band wished him the best in his future endeavors.

Zane commented on his decision to leave: "After 6 years in one of the greatest metal bands ever, I have decided to leave for the sake of family and personal health. I have enjoyed my time in HALCYON WAY and it has been a life defining tenure. Me and the guys all remain brothers and I look forward to everything HALCYON WAY has to offer the metal world in the years to come. It was a true privilege to write and contribute to the band, and to hear what was in my head fleshed out on the albums was a joy all its own. See all of you guys in the front row at the next HW show! I'm currently working on a project called "Bishop Lake" with an EP due out in Spring 2012. I also have a horror punk/metal band called School For Morticians slated to break wind sometime in mid 2012."

Guitarist Jon Bodan shared his thoughts on Zane leaving:

"As much as it pains us that our brother Zane has had to step away from HALCYON WAY, we have nothing but respect for his decision and wish him nothing but the best. We've gone to war with him for a long time, and he will truly be missed. Keep an eye out for his new projects as I'm sure they're going to be killer! We would also like to thank Eric Roberts, Rob Fisher from Void Of Reason, and Mike Perrone for filling in with us on several live dates when Zane's situation was a little unclear - you guys were a big help to us and we appreciate it."

The band is auditioning new guitarists. Interested parties can contact auditions@halcyonway.com.
