Krypteria Guitarist Chris Siemons Forced to Sit Out Tour
Krypteria's guitarist, producer and founding member Chris Siemons is forced to hang up his live guitar for the time being.
His health problems, which had already caused the group to cancel their German tour last October, unfortunately have taken a turn for the worse. Therefore, his doctor insisted on Chris avoiding any activity that might potentially aggravate the situation and lead to permanent bodily damages let alone paralysis.
Beginning with Krypteria's performance at the "Go to Gö" festival this Friday, Olli Singer (ex-Lolita Nace) will take over live guitar duties for Chris Siemons.
Chris Siemons: "Olli is a phenomenal guitarist and a great guy, who fits in perfectly with us. And while I'll dearly miss performing on stage, I am more than confident that Olli will do a wonderful job filling in for me live."
Drummer S.C. Kuschnerus: "Krypteria's original line-up will not undergo any changes. However, Chris will focus on the management aspects of the band to a greater extent than ever. And thanks to his enormous expertise in that field it will only make Krypteria a stronger entity."
Besides working on the upcoming Krypteria album with his band mates Chris is facing a lengthy rehabilitation process which ideally will help him avoid surgery, improve his health substantially and eventually may allow him to return to the stage.
