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!"
