Cobalt - Phil McSorley Quits The Band


The start of this week has brought many line-up changes. Sadly for fans of Cobalt, it has also affected them this time. The American duo is now reduced to Erik Wunder because Phil McSorley has announced his departure. McSorley also says that Erik will have his blessing if he decides to continue making music under the Cobalt moniker, but so far, that hasn't been confirmed.

Phil McSorley said in a statement: "I have decided to quit Cobalt. I am grateful for what Cobalt started from, and the impressive amount of people affected by its music. I still feel a connection with the work we did, but I no longer feel that I am a part of its vision.

"Cobalt started with Erik and I making angry and heartfelt music, that later moved into more expressive music. It held a ton of symbology to my life, and for its help in making me who I am I am grateful.

"I will continue to make music on my own terms, but for me Cobalt is best left where it is. Thanks to all for the years of friendship and support. If Erik continues to create under the name Cobalt I support his decision. He was always a genius anyway."

Damn, that was unexpected and very disappointing. This could have serious implications on the quality of Cobalt.

It certainly does suck, but better than going through the motions.

not sure how this will effect future quality, as I thought I recall Phil saying something about just recording the vocals on "Gin", as Erik did most the composition while he was deployed.

I left for one day and this happened.
Seriously, this is huge disappointment. I had heard that they are recording their new album and was expected it to be released till summer.
