Posted on Eluveitie's official website:

"After a long time playing together with us, Sevan (flute, whistles, bagpipes) and Rafi (bass) decided to leave Eluveitie. Both of them came to this desicion due to personal reasons. Both, Sevan and Rafi, were longtime members. Sevan was with Eluveitie from the very beginning on. So their step was kind of a shock for us. Yet we also understand and accept their desicion. We won't forget the years we spent together and we wish Sevan and Rafi all the very best on their future musical as well as personal ways! "Thank you both for your dedication and for the time we spent together the last four years! Take care & horns raised!!!

Sevan and Rafi will still play with us the next couple of shows! But of course we're now looking for worthy replacements - a bass player and a multi-instrumentalist well playing bagpipes (Gaita and similar), tin and low whistles and eventually Irish flute.

But half of nothing is still nothing j/k

Maybe them leaving will make a good new band and the new members will make this band better...

You'll always have to wait and see.

Sevan was one of the coolest members of the band. Glad I got to see him in concert before he left.

This is terrible, terrible news... just saw them live two weeks ago....
They were the highlight of Paganfest, so much energy, especially loved Sevan's craziness on the flute!

This is horrible news, what is Eluveitie without the brothers! They were so entertaining live too, what a loss for the band
Lone Reaper - 06.06.2008 at 09:12  
They still have 6 members %) All's OK...
Jigoku Shoujo - 06.06.2008 at 12:08

@Thryce: WTF?

The bass is not a problem, but the part of Sevan, will be hard to replace.
Doc Godin - 06.06.2008 at 21:04  
Pfft. Bagpipe players are dime a dozen.

Wow this is really unfortunate. I hope they find good replacement but it will be hard to fill their shoes.
Manzo - 07.06.2008 at 17:15  
god damnit, I fucking love Eluveitie. They better get some awesome replacements, I want more music from them.

Damn, that sucks -- let's hope they get replacements that don't suck and keep the band awesome.
