Sweden’s DARKANE have announced that vocalist Jens Broman has left the band and that original vocalist Lawrence Mackrory has rejoined the band.
Here is Jens Broman‘s statement to fans:
“I will leave DARKANE. This has to do with personal issues. At the moment my life is in a phase where I’m unable to find inspiration for new adventures with DARKANE and therefore it’s best for me to pass on the mic. I will miss you all, the tours, all you dedicated fans and most of all my band mates. But know that DARKANE have found a superb replacement in Lawrence Mackrory.
“Good luck and stay metal!”
Lawrence Mackrory had the following message:
“It is with great pleasure I can finally announce my return to DARKANE. I have been waiting for this opportunity to appear and finally the time was right for me to continue what we started 13 years ago. Both Andreas and Jens have done a tremendous job with the band, which will keep me on my toes while performing live for sure.
“The first time I met Peter, Christofer, Klas and Jörgen was when they arrived at the studio in my hometown in Uppsala to record the debut album Rusted Angel. We had only spoken on the phone before and yet there I was, ready to record an album with them. After my departure we remained good friends but didn’t really see much of each other since we lived in different parts of the country.
“Now, the chemistry between the five of us is more vibrant than ever and I can’t wait to go on tour and perform songs from all five albums. The new DARKANE album is already in the works and I can guarantee that all fans, both old and new, will enjoy this record. So far the demos sound awesome, let’s just leave it at that. I’m looking forward to finally meeting all DARKANE-fans on the road.
“See you real soon!”
