FAIRYLAND Members Quit

Keyboardist Philippe Giordana of the French symphonic metal band FAIRYLAND has issued the following update:

"Anthony [Parker; guitar], Vincent [Kreyder; drums], Tom [Cesario; guitar, bass] and Max [Leclercq; vocals] have decided to leave FAIRYLAND and go on with their own project. The reasons for their departure have not been clearly expressed, and the way they handled the whole business, with direct announcement on FAIRYLAND's forum prior to any kind of discussion with Intromental Management, Napalm Records, Marquee Avalon, Burrn! Corporation or even me, was not very professional. However, it is their decision and I wish them all the luck they will need to make their new project break through.

"Regarding FAIRYLAND, I am and have always been the song writer, also taking care of the lyrics and vocal lines, plus the concept behind my music. So there is no reason why I should stop doing so. The only point I need to think about is whether I will try and build a new line-up, or just stay by myself and use guest musicians from different horizons. That last solution is quite appealing, since it can bring a lot of diversity to FAIRYLAND, plus it will mean I don't have to handle a line-up's personal issues, which is really time consuming. I'll then be able to concentrate on the music only, and all will be best.

"Meanwhile, stay tuned to get a whole bunch of information about FAIRYLAND's next releases.

"Special thanks go to Intromental Management and Napalm Records, who have decided to keep their thrust in the project. Thanks to all those who brought me support these last two weeks, and thanks to all the fans everywhere. We will meet again..."

FAIRYLAND's latest album, "The Fall of an Empire", was released earlier in the year via Napalm Records and was accompanied by the reissue of the band's "Of Wars in Osyrhia" debut (2003).
