Scottland's Concept of Time recently announced the departure of guitarist Andy Thomson. Concept of Time has now issued the following update about parting ways with the band's bassist:
"Alan will be playing his last show with Concept of time at Breastfest (breast cancer awareness charity show) in Dundee at Dexters on the 11th Feb. We have not closed the door on ever working with Alan again completely but in the present this is the best decision for both parties and although it comes as quite a sad situation for us we respect Alan's decision and thank him for all his efforts in Concept of time.
"As a result Concept of time are now looking for a bassist in or around the Glasgow Area or able to travel, must have own gear to professional standard and most importantly be able to play the material on all CD's. We are only looking for serious dedicated musicians, timewasters need not apply."
Alan also commented:
"I'm sorry to say, that I am going to have to leave Concept of Time. This was a really hard decision for me to make, but in the end, the best thing for both Concept of Time and myself. With their many upcoming tour dates and my very full college schedule it makes it really impossible for me to continue my roll as bass player for the band. There is no hard feelings between any of us and it has been ridiculous amounts of fun both playing and working with Tom and Phil. I wish the band all the success and luck in the future. Not that they need it really, the new material really speaks volumes about the both the talent and dedication of those who created it. More importantly though they're awesome songs people deserve to hear. Personally I cant wait hear the final mixes. Also thank you to anyone who came to see us play and all those who support Concept of Time, that has made it really special to play with the band, and all the harder to leave.'
Scottland's Concept of Time has issued the following announcement about parting ways with the band's guitarist:
"Concept of time are sad to say we have now parted ways with our guitarist Andy Thomson, we wish him all the best in future. We would also like to take this opportunity to say that we are pleased we will be working with a good friend of the band for live shows, Stephen Brannigan (Fallen Eternity).

Scottish metallers Concept of Time have issued the following statement regarding their shortened live set with Kamelot in Glasgow:
"We would like to apologize to everybody that came to see us last night as we only got to play half our set. There were many reasons for this, the main one being we were told at 7:25 that we were on in 5 minutes by the tour manager even though serenity were still onstage soundchecking. This left us with 35 minutes to set up all our equipment, soundcheck/line check and to play a 30 minute set! Plus when we got on stage every plug was adapted to european which meant it took even longer to change it back to british. So at this point we had already decided to drop one song from our set because there was no way that we would have time for it. We started our set at about 7:45 and also dropped our intro just to try and get as much time as possible to play the songs. After playing 3 songs we got told we had 3 minutes left, so we were going to play the second half of Embrace The Lie to give the set at least some sort of end, but after about 1 minute, they cut they keyboard sound which is why we stopped rather suddenly.
"Thank you to everybody that came to support us! We greatly appreciate it, and also to everybody who made it clear when we stopped that the crowd wanted more, you were awesome! We will arrange something soon to try and make it up to you all. We would also like to thank Serenity for being helpful and understanding in those difficult circumstances."
