HEIDEVOLK Part Ways With Vocalist Joris den Boghtdrincker
May 8, 2013, a year ago
Netherlands-based folk metallers HEIDEVOLK have parted ways with vocalist Joris den Boghtdrincker.
Says the band: "Joris has left Heidevolk. His last show was the Pagagfest gig in New York (video below). We want to thank him for everything he has done during the more than ten years that he was a member of the band. We cherish the experiences of the last decade and we wish him all the best for any future music adventure."
Joris' message to everyone: "After ten great years with Heidevolk, new horizons are beckoning me and I feel it is time for a change. I want to thank all involved in Heidevolk for the good times we had, and I want to wish them all the best in their future endeavours. To all the people I met and had the honour of performing for: it has been a pleasure and I am deeply thankful for all the memories. Wæs þu hæl!"
Heidevolk will soon start the search for a suitable replacement for the low vocal parts of the characteristic dual clean vocals. No live shows will be affected. Stand-in vocalist Mickael will take care of the vocal parts for the live shows to come until a new vocalist has been found.
