Prior to hitting the road with Saxon, Dream Evil have to announce some bad and some good news: Lead-Guitarist Gus G. is leaving the band to focus some more on his own band Firewind.

Gus G. gave us a short statement:

Hello my friends! Hope this message finds u well. I would like to announce to you, that I've decided to leave Dream Evil for different reasons, mainly personal. I would also like to concentrate on my own band, Firewind. However, this doesn't mean that I'm not friends with the guys in the band. I split with them under very friendly circumstances. I wish them the best in the future. As for me, you can count on hearing my new releases coming up later this year. I'm sorry if I dissapoint some of you, but...the show must go on! Stay Metal!

The rest of the guys in Dream Evil are sad about the split, but are happy as well to have found a brillant new lead-guitar player. Here is thje band’s statement about the line-up change:

There are no hard feelings; we are still best friends and we wish Gus nothing but the best in his future musical carrier. Second! The good news: Dream Evil is happy to announce that guitar virtuoso and axe-swinger Mark U Black is our new lead guitarist. This guy rips and shreds like a maniac in a true 80's guitar hero style We feel that with Mark’s skills and his ability to give Dream Evil his full time attention, this change will bring Dream Evil to the next level. We have already played some festival shows with him in Europe, and he delivered! We are very much looking forward to joining Saxon on the road in September/ October as we continue to spread the word about our latest album "The Book Of Heavy Metal." All right in the night!

Next to the Saxon tour, Dream Evil are going to play a very special show in London this year. Together with their Italian label-mates Labyrinth they will set the “Underworld’s” stage on fire on November 13th, 2004. For those who can’t be there, check the latest Dream Evil video clip "The Book Of Heavy Metal" on www.centurymedia.de.
