Iron Knights Is New Name For The Band Formerly Known As Stuka Squadron

U.K. traditional metal vampires Stuka Squadron announced that the band has changed its name to Iron Knights. The official press release from Metalbox Recording reads as follows:

"Iron Knights is the new name for the band previously known as Stuka Squadron.

"The official band statement explaining the reasons for this change can be found here: www.stuka-squadron.com (website due to change).

"The new website is www.ironknightsband.com and will be live imminently.

"The release of the album ‘New Sound Of War’ will be postponed from the original release date of 19 November 2012 to 26 November 2012 and it will be an Iron Knights album.

"On behalf of Iron Knights, I would like to take this opportunity to apologize in advance for the confusion this change will cause – it has not been an easy decision. I would also like to thank everyone that has supported the band and continues to support them going forward."

According to the statement from the band, former bass player and co-founder Lord Graham Pyre (Graham Cushway), who left the band back in September, sent "several lengthy emails...detailing his demands and conditions in regard to the band continuing under the name Stuka Squadron..." Allegedly, Cushway threatened legal action against the band on trademark issues.

No official statements from Cushway have been released and the former bassist is currently working on new material with a new band, more on which is expected soon.
