As you all know at the tail end of last year we lost two founding members of the band and we have been working on our second album with a new line up with a view to releasing it this summer.
Over recent weeks it has become apparent that within this new line up there are different visions for the creative process, direction and ultimately what the band should be in the future. Having come together in October last year we have worked together to develop a second album that everyone collectively we would be happy with but ultimately the cliché of “creative differences” has lead to a need for a new beginning.
As a result the current line up will be parting ways to pursue other things while Dan, as a new father will be focusing on his family in the short term and will no doubt return to making music in the future. As the little one’s Godfather – I’m obviously disappointed not to work with Dan on the new album but completely understand where his priorities rightly belong.
In terms of IMICUS, there will be a second album, the management and other things stay in place and I will be putting together a line up that will share a collaborative vision for what the band should be and will be as excited as I am to get out there and play the new material and launch the new album.
It may take a little longer than originally intended for the next album to come along but when it does it will be worth the wait and I’m looking forward toward to what the future holds.
Thanks to everyone who’s supported the band over the years – it’s always been massively appreciated and I hope you will all want to come along for the ride the new beginning will be!
