Bassist Lord Graham Pyre Splits With Stuka Squadron
Bassist Lord Graham Pyre announced that he has left U.K. traditional metal act Stuka Squadron. In a post on his Facebook Page, Pyre stated:
"[I have] left the band I formed, Stuka Squadron. Not my decision and not what I wanted. Extremely sad about it, but very glad to have had the support of the fantastic press and fans. Thanks all! You have been absolutely amazing!"
No official word from the band has yet been made, nor has a replacement for Pyre been named. The exact reasons surrounding the departure are unknown. Back in July, Hauptman Beam Von Beamish was recruited to fill in for Pyre for the band's performances at Headbanger’s Open Air Festival in Germany on 25th July and Woodstock Open Air Festival.
*UPDATE: The band later issued the following statement about the departure:
"Lord Pyre has today departed the ranks of the Squadron. A co-founding member, Pyre has served the Squadron for five years, but in recent months the Squadron has been operating nearly entirely without him.
We wish Lord Pyre well in his future journeys."
