Pelgrim Splits With Guitar Player Pim Goossens

Pelgrim guitarist Pim Goossens has issued the following announcement online about parting ways with the band:

'Hello everyone, I’m sad to inform you that I am quitting Pelgrim. In the coming months I will be starting a master’s programme and although I would love to do both this and play in the most kickass band in the universe ever, I know that both would suffer.

"This would be unacceptable to me and more importantly it would be unfair to my bestest of buddies, who are gay for robots, but I don’t judge. I have been making music with some of these nerds for almost ten years, Wouter Zaman and Koen Scheepens, and in the last years I have also had the pleasure to see Rik Torremans and Django van Loon join our merry band of band buddies. They are all my best friends, truly, and I hope they will grow so much more with a new guitar player (who should not be gay for robots, someone has to be the normal one..).

"In short: this sucks, shmurr, had to be done, murp, all the best, bliep, being in bands is for noobs, huurrdiedurr. Also, be gentle to the robots. They have feelings, you know.'

The Dutch band adds: "This surely is a major disappointment for us, since Pim is a long time member and friend. We love you Pim ‘njek-njek-sjmurdiebur’ Goossens and wish you all the best. However, Pelgrim will go on and we’ll start looking for the right replacement for Pim. Do you think you’ve got what it takes? Contact us right away!"
