Quo Vadis - The End Of An Era


Vocalist Stéphane Paré, drummer Yanic Bercier and bassist Dominic "Forest" Lapointe have announced their departure from Quo Vadis.

''As of today, July 13th, we are officially leaving the band for various reasons. As for the shows that are already booked, we are still going to perform as agreed, on a professional basis.

This decision is the hardest for drummer Yanic Bercier as he has been in the band since day one, 15 years ago. As for vocalist Stéphane Paré, he was in the band for more than 5 1/2 years.

whoever they recruit for bassist and drummer are probably going to be inferior to Bercier and Lapointe

I know, it pisses me off that the band quits, but it pisses me off even more when they don't bother to explain why, you would think thats the main interest of the news is to know why.

Its a good band, we have all day to learn about why they quit.

Shit I saw Stephane saturday after the At the Gates show and he didn't mention that, like if everything was normal for the band. Yanic and Forest are in the top musicians in the scene here and Stephane is also a great vocalist so it's sad to see that... unless they start something new together.

Sad news. I hope that the next news of the band will be much more enthusiastic... and that they will reconstruct a solid and good music as before.

I hope this doesn't mean the end of the band, but on the other hand I hope it is if the replacements for them would end up affecting the quality of their music. I bet this won't be the last time we will hear from these three guys, hopefully.

It's pathetic how some bands just don't explain the reason of their departure ... These guys were among my favorite musicians.

Wow... I was just thinking the same thing... but now, as their new lineup was announced... I think this is the begining of a new era...

Marc-André Gingras or "MAG" is an AWESOME guitarist, you will see.

And what to say about Patrice Hamelin... Super fast kicks, this drummer is SICK. Listen to their new song on their myspace, it is going to be great
