Threshold Singer Andrew McDermott Quits

Mac has confirmed that he's left Threshold. In a statement he told fans that he knew the timing was bad but thanked them for all their support. He also wished the band all the best and expressed his gratitude to the band's original singer Damian Wilson for standing in for him at last weekend's festivals.

Mac replaced Damian Wilson as Threshold's vocalist in 1998 and recorded five studio albums with the band as well as various live and fan club releases. He was previously lead singer for German band Sargant Fury who released three albums in the 1990's.

Threshold had confirmed that Damian Wilson would once again perform with them at the Subtacto Festival in Oslo, Norway on 4 August, however the Progfest has announced financial difficulties and has cancelled Threshold and Pendragon from the bill.

A statement posted on the Subtacto website explained that "The reason for this is that we as organisers don't have enough funds to see this through. We therefore have to reorganise the event, and that means that we can't afford those two bands."

Threshold are disappointed at the cancellation and expressed their sympathy to all their fans who bought tickets and were hoping to see them perform. The festival is offering full refunds to fans who no longer want to attend. Talks are also in progress to see if Wilson can perform at all of Threshold's remaining 2007 shows.

The band recently released their 8th album "Dead Reckoning" on March 23.
