Finnish act Amberian Dawn has issued the following announcement about parting ways with the band's vocalist:

"Goodbye Heidi, welcome back Joonas and Emppu. Amberian Dawn sadly announce the departure of Heidi Parviainen. The first chapter of Amberian Dawn's story is closed. The band and vocalist Heidi Parviainen, who has been a member of Amberian Dawn from the beginning, have decided to part ways.

"The decision to part company at the end of the year was made consensually in early 2012, thus meaning Amberian Dawn's appearance at Metal Female Voices Fest was their last show together. Amberian Dawn wishes Heidi all the best for her future and thanks her deeply for the work, effort and contribution she provided during all these years.

"Furthermore the band line-up will change since drummer Heikki Saari and guitarist Kasperi Heikkinen are leaving the band and their positions are filled by ex-drummer Joonas Pykälä-aho and ex-guitarist Emil 'Emppu' Pohjalainen. Joonas and Emppu have been around a lot lately and you have seen them on AD's previous European tour in 2011. In fact Joonas has played on all 3 European tours of AD so far and Emppu on 2. AD wishes Kasperi and Heikki well for their future and successful careers with their new band projects. Your talent and virtuosity was highly appreciated.

"The first chapter of Amberian Dawn lasted 5 years, brought forth 4 studio albums, 3 European tours and about 70 gigs worldwide. This was a great time for everyone involved, but now it's time to move on and continue with a new line-up and new vocalist, who will be announced in December 2012. Welcome back on board Emppu and Joonas!"
