The Man-Eating Tree Splits With Vocalist

Finland's The Man-Eating Tree has checked in with the following announcement about parting ways with vocalist Tuomas Tuominen:

"Unfortunately we have to inform that Tuomas does not continue any longer in our band as a vocalist. Various musical and also non-musical aspects led us to this conclusion.

"There is no bigger drama or so in our side and we don’t want to discuss further about the reasons behind the decision, so please don’t send us any questions concerning the issue. Quitting the band was not an option in any case and we will return with a new singer when the time is right.

"Now it is time to gather some energy and even if the new material has been already written and practiced, the new album is not coming out in the near future.

"We would like to thank Tuomas from unforgettable times and great work without forgetting the kilometers of joy and tears we shared together. We wish you all the best in your life!"

The Man-Eating Tree Vocalist To Miss Show

Vocalist Tuomas Tuominen of Finnish act The Man-Eating Tree has issued the following statement online about missing an upcoming show:

"Our coming Friday's show at Caribia Metal Halloween, Turku, will be performed with some special arrangements in the vocal department. Special arrangements will be necessary, as I am at the moment tied to a situation in my immediate family, which requires no less than my full attention. This makes it impossible for me to travel out of town.

"Obviously for me, it is nerve wrecking to stay behind and miss out already a second opportunity to perform with The Man-Eating Tree before my home town audience and all my closest friends. Afterall, my years with Fall of the Leafe have built a weird sensation into me, an eerie feeling that that Turku is for my musical roots pretty much the equivalent of what Seattle is for grunge. I know I am a sentimental fool but this situation breaks my heart. I have waited so much for the chance to perform in Turku again.

"Nevertheless, the band has taken the decision to do their utmost to pull off the gig despite the circumstances. I hear my good friend Antti Karhu, who has now already for a long time taught me how to sing right, will be bearing the brunt of double tasking as both the guitar player and the vocalist. And I heard rumors he has hired beautiful and talented reinforcements too.

"I get comfort from knowing that even during my absence, the band will deliver, as always."
