Kamelot Officially Splits With Vocalist Roy Khan
After vocalist Roy Khan was forced to drop out of Kamelot's tour dates due to health issues, the band has now issued the following announcement about officially parting ways with Khan:
"With a heavy heart we can now announce that Roy Khan has chosen to leave the band. We wanted to give him ample time for this kind of decision, due to his recent burnout and also the amount of amazing times we have shared with him in Kamelot. We respectfully accept his resignation from the band and wish him the best in his future endeavors. The timing is actually good since we feel the uncertainty the fans have had can now be laid to rest and the band can move on to finding a new singer."
"The tour is going great so far and the fans have been amazing throughout this entire process," adds keyboardist Oliver Palotai. With the new tour already in progress, Kamelot has already begun the search for a new vocalist.
"I have a few guys in mind," said band founder Thomas Youngblood. "And as you can imagine, it is a very important decision. There are some amazing singers that have already contacted us on this but we will take our time to find the right person. Due to the overwhelming success of the recent shows in South America, we are pleased to announce new shows in November/December for Europe (stay tuned). The band headlines* the Print de Temps Festival tonight and will play a Amsterdam (nearing sold-out) concert tomorrow followed by a full headliner tour with special guests Evergrey, Amaranthe and Sons of Seasons. (* Guest vocalists Fabio Lione and Tommy Karevik). Thank you for your support and see you on tour!"
