Draconian - Lisa Johansson Leaves The Band

Official statement from the band:

Late October, Lisa announced to her fellow bandmembers she'd decided to leave Draconian starting as soon as possible. It had been on the table for some time.

It's with sadness we state this message. Lisa has, since her appearance on the Draconian demo Dark Oceans We Cry, continued to astonish and melt thousands of people's hearts over the years with her emotional vocal. The addition of Lisa is what helped us to get our long awaited record contract. We are very aware what she has meant to our band and the legacy she's left us with.

Power Quest - Announce New Vocalist

Statement from the Power Quest official Website:

"We are pleased to finally reveal the identity of the new Power Quest frontman! Please welcome Colin Callanan to the Power Quest family! Colin, 31, is from Galway, Ireland and will make his live debut with the band in Wakefield on November 27th. The show will be streamed "live" on the internet as well! Previously Colin has been heard fronting his own projects "Dark Crystal" and "Karuna".

Steve Williams commented:

"We are thrilled to welcome Colin into the band. He impressed each and every one of us at his audition a couple of months back and he really understands what Power Quest is all about. His voice and personality are exactly what we have been looking for. Welcome aboard brother!"

Colin added:

"I'm really happy to be joining Power Quest! I've been following the band since their very first demo release on mp3.com and have already been singing Power Quest songs for many years to help me keep my vocal skills up to scratch. I've always thought it would be great to get the opportunity to sing with an internationally acclaimed outfit such as Power Quest, and was really glad when I got the invite from Steve to come over and jam with the band to see how the chemistry is. Well it was really cool hanging out with the Power Quest family over those days and I tried to give them a good blast of my voice in the rehearsal room so they could see if my technique and style was what Power Quest are after. We both agree it's a good match, and I'm really enthusiastic about being the new voice of Power Quest and offering as much as I can to the band on the old songs, as well as working with the guys to write new material together. I look forward to many more gigs and tours, and plenty of craic as we say in Ireland!"
