Wacek “Vogg” Kieltyka, guitarist and founding member of the Polish death metal band DECAPITATED, has announced plans to reform the band following the tragic road accident that occurred in October 2007. Here’s his official announcement:
“It’s time to come back! After a two-year break, DECAPITATED is coming back with new members. The official new line-up for DECAPITATED will be announced at the end of December.
“As you all know, the decision to continue the band was really, really hard for me, but everything I do now is to keep DECAPITATED alive. [Vocalist] Covan’s situation has not improved much and he is still in bed and unable to function on his own. He still fights to recover as we speak and we are all still 100% behind him and hope for the best. It has been the hardest thing for me to move on without [brother & drummer] Vitek by my side, but he would have wanted me to continue with the band.
“Finally, I have found some great musicians who can continue the work of Vitek and Covan. At the beginning of April, DECAPITATED will start to play our first reunion shows. We will visit the biggest cities in Australia and play some of the biggest summer festivals in Europe. Don’t worry, we won’t forget about the U.K.! After this, the band will concentrate on the making of a new album! I would like to thank all the people who have supported us all this time.”
The band have some touring plans for 2010 including shows in Australia and European festival appearances in May. A North American tour is also being planned for the Summer of 2010. Visit DECAPITATED online for tour dates and more info: www.decapitatedband.net www.myspace.com/decapitated
