After the decision of vocalist Mark Fox to leave Shakra in autumn, the band is looking for a new vocalist.

The statement from the band reads as follows: "Quite recently, we were informed by Mark about his intention to leave the band by the end of October and we took note of it. Mark feels that some of the contractual agreements between the band and their business environment are too much to his disadvantage.

The remaining four band members however don't see themselves put in a disadvantage by their business partners. On the contrary, it is not least thanks to the management, booking-agency and record label's professional contribution that the success of Shakra was made possible.

All band members have been able to harvest the fruits of the hard work they've done for us in the past years. It is only natural that people around the band earn money for this too. We wish Mark all the best for his private and musical future. It is important for us to let the Shakra-fans know, that we consider our chosen path to be the right one and that we will continue to follow this way with all that lies in our power. After Mark's departure, we will continue to work together with the same business partners and keep our passion - Shakra - burning, with a new singer on our side.

Due to Mark leaving Shakra this autumn, we're looking for a new singer!"

Old news, still a shame though, Fox was an awesome singer and Shakra is a really good band, also live.

I hope they'll find a worthy replacement
