Xandria Parting With Bassist

German act Xandria has issued the following announcement about parting ways with the band's bassist:

"We sadly have to announce the departure of our yearlong bass guitar player Nils Middelhauve today. It was mainly due to personal reasons why Nils took the decision to split ways in the future. It gradually became obvious to him that some points of view vastly grew apart, concluding in Nils’ determination to not continue in Xandria anymore. Especially since all members are friends first and foremost, any more compromises had been even more hurtful. The band regrets Nils’ decision, yet is respecting it at the same time, even though everyone is really sad about it.

"Us, the remaining members in Xandria, are still a bit shocked and paralyzed and we can hardly imagine to continue without our yearlong fellow. We went through so many good and rough times together – Nils always gave everything for the band and we all have to be very grateful for his work! Nils – we will never forget the times we had together and we wish you all the best for the future! Thanx for everything!

"At this stage no replacement has been determined. We will carefully look for an adequate successor. Nils kindly will play any show confirmed so far, if no replacement will be found by the time of these very shows."

Xandria's Bassist To Miss Upcoming Tour Dates

Xandria has issued the following announcement about the band's bass player having to sit out upcoming live shows:

"Bad luck for our bass guitar player Nils. Whilst we were playing the most recent shows w/Epica, Nils severely hurt his right forefinger on stage which eventually led to a serious blood poisoning after the last show.

"Due to this sepsis he had to undergo surgery twice in the course of the past week, which will now disable him to tour for the upcoming 4-6 weeks. Nils surely is extremely disappointed to not hit the road again in April, but feels comfortable in knowing there is a well-known substitute: Xandria's European tour w/Epica and Stream of Passion in April will now be played with Serenity's Fabio d'Amore, who is happy to fill in on bass guitar for the tour.

"So, no worries, we won't miss a single show. Please come out and support Fabio on his spontaneous new endeavor and wish Nils all the best for a return very soon!"

Xandria Comments On Signing To Napalm

Xandria has issued the following statement about the recent news of the band signing to Napalm Records:

"Finally we can present some very exciting news: there is a new Xandria album to come and we already roughly can reveal when this is going to hit record stores. We are working intensively to have the new longplayer out in early 2012!

"You all know why it took such a long time, but this was due to our search for THE right singer fit as well as for a few other business reasons. After Manuela had joined us in December last year, we got to speed in all essential business talks and finalized our songwriting, hence we are happy to announce that we now officially are part of the Napalm Records family!

"It took this time because we wanted to make sure that we would have the best conditions to record the new album the way we want it, and Napalm and us shared the same ideas, objectives and visions from the very beginning on. We are very confident Xandria and Napalm Records with its roster and expertise will make a great team! And last but not least, this past half a year with Manuela before starting to record the album was important to grow together as a band again, and also to let the songs combine with her new wonderful voice.

"We already have begun the recordings for the new album, to last throughout the rest of the summer. With mixing and the final mastering the work will be taking until end of this year, hence we are happy to proudly present the new album by early next year. In the meantime, Xandria will also be touring as part of the 'Out Of The Dark Festival Tour' along with VanCanto, Tristania, Serenity and Amberian Dawn, hitting European stages in early fall. More dates to be announced soon. please check our live dates' section online and watch out for a place near you to catch up with us!"
