Vocalist Jonas Heidgert Splits With Dragonland, Band To Continue As Instrumental Act
The announcement reads: "It is with mixed feelings that we now announce that our vocalist Jonas Heidgert has decided to end his 15-year long position in Dragonland and move on to other musical projects.
"We wish Jonas the best of luck with his new endeavours, and we will all of course remain the best of friends outside of the band.
"You might ask yourself now: 'Who will be the new vocalist of Dragonland'? We have spent weeks deliberating, holding auditions and reviewing jaw-dropping submissions from a host of incredibly talented and famous singers of both genders from all around the globe.
"However, we feel that a mighty voice like Jonas’ cannot simply be replaced. Just as Olof’s guitars and Elias’ keyboards forge the signature sound of Dragonland, so does Jonas’ vocals, and to bring in another singer would simply taint the legacy of such an iconic performer.
"Thus we hereby announce that WE WILL NOT HIRE A NEW VOCALIST. Dragonland will continue as a purely INSTRUMENTAL band, with a state-of-the-art, previously unheard of new keyboard-oriented sound as the melodic core of our compositions. This decision also ushers in a new era of instrument-centric live performances, which will be unleashed upon the world with our first live show of 2014, at the PPM Fest in Belgium on April 20.
"This news will surely come as a shock to many of you, but we assure you that Dragonland is stronger than ever before, and we promise you nothing less than a mind-blowing sonic monster of a new album when the time comes.
"All hail Jonas Heidgert. All hail keyboard solos. ALL HAIL DRAGONLAND!!!"
