Latest Triaxis News
Below is our complete Triaxis news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Vocalist Krissie from U.K. based metal band Triaxis has checked in with this update about parting ways with the group:
"Dear Triaxians, at the end of 2016, I will be stepping down as vocalist of Triaxis with my last performance being at our now annual Christmas bash at Fuel Rock Club on Dec 16th. No, I’m not pregnant. No, I’ve not had a falling out with the guys (I adore them very much, which has made my decision very hard to say the least). No, I’m not joining another band.
"As most of you know, I run my own business and often that dictates a lot of when and where we are able to gig. Add to that that I’ve also done a fair whack of the backroom stuff for the band since I joined in November 2007, coupled with bouts of ill health over the last 12 months, I have decided that I need a break from performing and all that comes with running a successful band.
"Did I make the decision lightly? Hell no. I mulled it over for a good month before I decided and then I took a good three weeks before I could pluck up the courage to tell the rest of the band.
Then, why are you announcing it so early if you’re not hanging up your mic until the end of the year, I hear you ask? Because I want the guys to have as much chance to find a suitable replacement as possible, without it affecting the Triaxis gig calendar.
"It would be very unfair of me to ask them to wait until Dec to start hunting, when the band has a great run of gigs coming up taking it well into the new year. Also, I want them to utilize all avenues we have available for advertising, including the Facebook page and website, and I wanted to let you, the fans know, without you wondering what was going on when adverts started appearing. We all know what the rumour mill can be like, even when speculation is done with the best of intentions. More...
Drummer Giles and rhythm guitarist CJ from Triaxis just issued this message online about departing the band:
"Well the time has come!! Sunday saw the last Triaxis show for Giles and I, and we were given a truly wonderful send off. We've savoured every moment of the last few gigs and so we thank every single one of our fans who have supported Triaxis - those who have been there from the start and those who've only just found us. We thank you and will miss you all.
"To our amazing band mates: Krissie, Glyn and Becky. We love you all to bits, we are family, and playing those last few notes and drumhits on Sunday made it all feel real that we may never share a stage together again. However we did it with a smile on our faces and a feeling of love in our hearts. We will remember the amazing highs, the tough times that just made us stronger as a unit, and of course the very many laughs we have shared.
"Krissie you've been there almost from the very beginning, but before you joined, Triaxis didn't have it's voice and together we moulded the band we have today. Not only a unique voice, but a lifeforce that makes the band tick. More...

The Sun is shining and Bloodstock is excited to announce seven more of metal’s finest for the UK’s heaviest weekender, including a clutch of bands from the farthest flung corners of the globe.
Friday’s line up will now include extreme prog metal Aussies, Ne Obliviscaris. The band proclaims, “UK, here we come! 2015 is the year we are finally going to reach your shores and we couldn’t be more excited to announce that it will be as part of the enormous Bloodstodck festival. We’re looking forward to playing alongside many of the best and biggest heavy acts from across the world!”
Saturday’s bill sees two bands who’ve jetted in from Indonesia, a hotbed of metal and one of the planet’s most burgeoning heavy music scenes. Burgerkill and Jasad are two of the country’s biggest metal acts, even counting the country’s metal-loving prime minister, Joko Widodo among their fans.
Sunday’s line-up sees a very special solo set from ex-Evile shredsman, Ol Drake to accompany his upcoming solo album, "Old Rake" which is out in June via Earache. Ol comments "I'm very excited to be returning to Bloodstock in a musical capacity. The weekend is fully booked off work (I was going anyway) and we're rehearsing right now. It’ll be a very special show, so don’t miss it. I’ll no doubt be having my fair share of drinks and Jagermeister afterwards and no doubt be returning to work feeling buzzed yet terrible. This is probably the only show I'll be doing to promote the album. Hope to see you there!" More...
Welsh heavy metal outfit, Triaxis has announced that Control the Storm bass player, Becky Baldwin has joined the band as replacement for Owen Crawford, who left the group this past April. A statement from the band reads as follows:
"We are delighted that Becky has joined us. Her skill as a musician was evident from the onset of her studio audition, and her professionalism and enthusiasm for the music was definitely apparent. We can't wait to get on stage with her and start the next chapter of Triaxis. We'd like to thank everyone who applied, the level of musicianship was excellent all round"
Triaxis are currently writing their third album, and will be appearing at SOS Festival, Radcliffe Civic Hall, Manchester on July 20th 2014
Basist Owen Crawford from Triaxis has issued the following announcement about departing the band:
"This is never an easy thing to do, but today I have to let everyone know that I'm leaving Triaxis. A lot has happened since joining the band 6 years ago, I've played at some fantastic shows, some terrible ones and I've met some great people along the way, but there are things both outside and inside the band that have caused me to make this decision.
"I'd like to thank everyone that has made the effort to come to a show (or for some of you a lot of shows) and all the people that I've spoken with, drank too much beer with and insulted people's mothers with. Best of luck to the rest of the band in the future."
The band also comments: "We are really sad and shocked that Owen is leaving Triaxis, and we completely understand his reasons and respect his decision. We want to take this opportunity to thank him for all the work he has put in to making Triaxis what it is and his writing skills have given us some amazing songs to share. We've had lots of fun, plenty of highs and lows, but so many happy memories and we wish him all the best with his future projects."
Triaxis has checked in with the following year-end message to fans:
"2013 has been a fantastic year for the band, and we would like to thank everyone who has supported us, be it by coming to a gig, buying merch or even just sharing our music for helping us make it the amazing year that it was.
"We are very much looking forward to 2014, and bringing you new music, visiting old haunts and discovering new places to gig. We can't wait.
"So from all of us here at Triaxis, thank you for making 2013 so good and we wish you all a very Happy New Year. See you at the front in 2014!"

South Wales act Triaxis has checked in with the following announcement about canceling upcoming live shows and working on a new album:
"We're extremely sorry to announce that we're unable to fulfill several of our planned shows this month. Unfortunately we have been put in a difficult position where one of the band members is no longer able to commit to all the shows due to a change in work commitments, & as a result the only shows we can now play are the 16th in Manchester & 18th in Birmingham. As most of you know we all have full time jobs, and unfortunately this time around things have not worked out.
"We can only apologize sincerely for any disappointment & inconvenience - you know that we love to perform and share our music far and wide, and no one is more disappointed about this situation than the band itself. And that we would not put our fans and the venues in this situation unless there was no other option. Each of the other shows involved still goes ahead, but obviously without our participation. We aim to return to these venues in tours in the near future. We apologise to the fans, the venues and the bands we were due to perform with - and we appreciate your support as always.
"However, we do have some good news for you all! - We have begun writing the third Triaxis album. And as already planned we will be taking a few months off the road from November onwards (apart from a special Christmas show in December in Cardiff) to focus on this. There will be plenty of updates and we look forward to sharing this with you all."
