Dear fans, here we have now the statemens from Robse, Hati and René (scroll down for english version). BTW.: The leaving of Sandra and Andi is unfortunately NOT an april fool.
▪ Statement from Robse
After all these great tours and friendly intensive concert-adventures it strikes me deep in my heart to hear that my bandmates leave so suddenly and unexpected. Before I can make my comments I have to digest this shock first.
▪ Statement from Hati
Last weekend was full with question marks and mixed feelings. Equilibrium had suffer a tremble, yet it is and will stay balanced !
I would like to wish Sandra & Andi all the best with their future endeavours.
I had the pleasure to work with you fine people and we did share a lot of moments together. will sure miss you guys…
Rest assured that Rene, Robse and myself will continue the Equilibrium adventure and we are looking forward with positive and high expectations to what future holds.
▪ Statement from René
Many years have passed now since Sandra, Andi and I founded this band and I can still remember very well the first sessions playing Metallica songs.
I owe both of them great thanks because they helped me a lot to build up this band and they always stood by my side. So I was really surprised by their announcement to leave the band.
But I know Sandra and Andi and I understand if they want to concentrate on other things in their life. They are out of the band now but not out of the world. And of course we are still friends!
My feelings are mixed: On the one hand I regret the departure of Sandra and Andi. On the other hand we are just before releasing an kick-ass new Equilibrium album and great shows.
I’m someone who looks ahead and so we will intensively look for 2 musicians that fit into the band and will go the next steps with us in Equilibrium.
To calm the concern of many fans: Equilibrium will continue as well as the music will not be affected in any way by this change inside the band.
