Mess Age Get New Bassist

Andrzej "Gruby" Osma³ek has left Mess Age. The band has already found the new member, which is Artur "Marysia" Olkowicz who is a former member of Oblivion and Ad Noctum. Here is the info concerning shifts in the band sent to us by the drummer Dominik "Otwieracz" Ko³odziejczak:

"After five years of playing Andrzej Osma³ek left our band. As the decision of his move he claimed a lack of motivation for further creating music. Artur "Mary¶" Olkowicz took his place in Mess Age. He is our friend from non existing Oblivion. Also he used to play in Ad Noctum and we think he's going to share his experience and skills with us. We're going to check out the new bass player during the european tour in June. We thank Andrzej for five years of playing together with us and for everything he's done for us. We wish him all the best with his new band."
