Engel Splits With Vocalist Magnus

Swedish act Engel has posted the following announcement online about parting ways with the band's vocalist:

"We are sad to say that Magnus will not be a member of Engel anymore. We had a really good run and we will miss him very much. There is no hard feelings between Engel and Magnus and we parted ways as friends, carrying with us a lot of good times and awesome memories.

"However, this will not affect the coming shows, since our good friend Lenne (ex-Twelvestep) steps up to the plate once again and fills in for Magnus during the Blood Of Saints Over Sweden+ Tour. Come out to the shows and support Engel and Lenne by banging your head on the Frontline!"

Magnus has also issued the following statement: “So this is it, my time in Engel is over. I’m not going to rant about the who’s and why´s, just say goodbye. I have had a lot of good times and I am sad to leave it behind, but that’s how it goes sometimes. It´s not a farewell forever, I’m not going to quit music. I´m going to miss the boys on stage, the people in the crowd and all the good friends I have met on the road. To the boys on stage: Good luck with all future adventures. To the crowd: Stay true, I will miss you. And to the 'roadsters:' See you again soon.”

Engel released latest album "Blood of Saints" on September 25th, 2012 and you can watch the video clip for "Frontline" below.
