||Translation of the news posted on the official website on 19.12.2005:
Dani told us some time ago that he decided to leave the band and in order to avoid any misunderstanding, here's the complete statement he sent us. Saratoga wish him and his new band good luck and we thank him for all those years of work and friendship. And neither he nor us want to argue about that since it's his own decision and that it happened in a friendly way.
Hi all. I'm writing to tell you I have taken the decision to quit Saratoga. Even though Skizoo was first thought as a side-project, it grew to the point that it's impossible to handle both groups. Now, Skizoo is a band in which all the members have to be 100% involved, so that it's impossible for me to set the priority on Saratoga. The reasons of my choice are personal and I hope you will understand them. Of course, this is a friendly separation and I wish the best to the band. I want to thank all the fans of Saratoga who have supported me through all those years, I will always be indebted to you. Finally, I have to say that my involvement in Stravaganzza will not only remain the same but that this will allow to get even more involved in the band.
Cheers to all of you.
We also want to say that everything will go on and that SARATOGA already have a new drummer, Andy C. who will be part of Saratoa's sixth line-up. Andy is an incredible musician, as you could see before in Dark Moor, among other bands. We have prepared all the songs we're going to play live and we promise we'll give out everything to you in our concerts, that you can see in the Tour section.
Salud y mucho Heavy Metal
