Arena - Part Ways With Vocalist


After 10 years of service - and shortly before the release of the new album The Tinder Box - vocalist Rob Sowden has left UK prog metallers Arena. Here's the word from the band:

"We are sad to announce that singer Rob Sowden has decided to part ways with the band. The explanation given so many times at moments like this is "musical differences", usually as a veil for somewhat darker reasons; but actually, in this case, it is precisely the reason. Arena thank Rob for his involvement and support for the last ten years and wish him all the best for the future. In the meantime Arena will be performing their shows in November where they will be presenting their new vocalist, as well as material from their next album, The Tinder Box."

That's a shame, he was a great vocalist, but this band will be good regardless. Contagion will probably be their best album though, and Rob Sowden will be remembered for that.

This is bad piece of news after long time of silence. Never got around to seeing them in this line up, which is a shame.
