German melodic death metal band Night In Gales vocalist Björn Gooßes has announced that he will be leaving the band. He commented on his departure in a statement on October 12th:
“1996-2012. 16 years Night In Gales, during which I have experienced some of the most intense moments as a musician – positive as well as negative ones. Well, Heavy Metal ain´t no picnic. I don´t wanna miss these memories whatsoever and I´ll always be proud of what we have done as a band!
After four albums, some great and memorable tours, many festivals and numerous shows across all Europe as well as a crazy trip to Japan, there was more or less silence for quite a while. But ten years after „Necrodynamic“ we didn´t only give a sign life with our fifth record „Five Scars“, we rather returned with a bang! Yet this album is my swansong for Night In Gales. Since the release of „Five Scars“ we earned overwhelming response on the album and played some awesome shows. I will gratefully treasure the memory of my very last two shows with Night In Gales, which took place in Romania last weekend – but still time has come for me to close this chapter. With „Five Scars“ things have come full circle for me.
I want to thank Jens, Tobbe, Frank and Adriano, our former drummer Christian and interim drummer Hartmut as well as all supporters, partners and friends of Night In Gales for pulling their weight on making this band become part of my DNA.
1996-2012. 16 years Night In Gales. I´ll miss you, but it´s time to move on. Cheers!“
