Vektor's Future In Peril As All Members Defect From David DiSanto

Vektor's David DiSanto has apparently parted ways with all other members of the band: drummer Blake Anderson, guitarist Erik Nelson and bassist Frank Chin.

A post went live on the Vektor Facebook page explaining those three members were departing the group, which was shortly after deleted (but can still be read below). Since then David DiSanto issued this statement:

"I apologize to anyone who was concerned about the post from earlier today. Vektor is not stopping. I started writing Vektor songs in 1999 and I'm still writing Vektor songs. As long as I live, Vektor will not die. I appreciate everything that Blake, Frank, and Erik have done to help this ship take off. I also appreciate all of my band mates before them: Willy, Pablo, Adam, Mike, and Kian. See you on the road!"

The original message (since removed from Vektor's social media) reads as follows:

Greetings Vektonauts. With sadness we must inform you that we, Blake, Frank, and Erik, are all departing from Vektor effective immediately. It has been a completely incredible 10-ish years that has brought us all around the world and introduced us to so many super generous, passionate, friendly people and produced three albums of which we are extremely proud. Seeing the reception for "Terminal Redux" in particular after all of the hard work put into it has been very humbling. Sadly we’ve reached a point where we can’t continue with the working arrangement we have, for a number of reasons that we find unnecessary to discuss publicly. There’s no big story or drama, people and personalities simply change and drift apart and we’ve reached our limit.

The three of us are lifer musicians and will continue to be. You’ll be seeing us in other contexts, other bands, recordings, tours, and more. Our time in Vektor has been a major part of our lives and parting with that will be a serious adjustment, but ultimately we’re excited to see other new ways we can put our ideas to use. We are -hugely- grateful to everyone that came out to shows, picked up merch, listened to the music, showed us a great time and kept us going. We accomplished more than we ever thought was possible when we joined and we hope you’ll stay tuned for what we do next – you have certainly not seen the last of us.

We don’t know if this means Dave will seek new members and continue Vektor or not, that is for him to decide and announce in his own time. Given that it’s the holidays and the future of the band is out of our hands, we’d appreciate some space for the time being as we enjoy time with friends and family (please don’t message our personal pages about it, we won’t reply). All the best and we’ll see you down the road.

Vektor released the "Terminal Redux" album back in May, which can be heard in full below.

A little surprised myself there hasn't been more interaction here considering how thrash-focused many of our commentors are, but then again this news our FB page has sort of blown up with comments.

What an easy thing to declare 17 years in to the century.
