Posted on Tuesday, June 17 @ 05:44:52 UTC by nightowl

Rafi Kirder (bass, vocals) and Sevan Kirder (bagpipe, flute, whistles, vocals) have announced their departure from the Swiss folk metal band Eluveitie. Commented Rafi: "Sevan and I decided to leave the band Eluveitie after four years activity. Our last concert will be held at Bloodstock festival in England.

"This decision was not easy for us, since we were allowed to experience beautiful moments in all the years. Unfortunately, there have been several reasons and occurrences which forced us to let the band continue without us.

"We're really sorry to bring you such bad news, but there are moments in life where everyone must look to himself; we hope you'll understand.

"We want to say thank you, our fans, from our heart, for all the unforgettable times we had together, and wish the band all the best for the future.

"Please respect that we can't answer any questions concerning our exit (due personal reasons)."
