Nils Middelhauve has parted ways with German symphonic metal outfit Xandria. You will do well to remember that Nils sat out the band's European Tour last April due to an injured finger. The bassist has however decided to quit the band.

The band posted the following: "We sadly have to announce the departure of our yearlong bass guitar player Nils Middelhauve today. It was mainly due to personal reasons why Nils took the decision to split ways in the future. It gradually became obvious to him that some points of view vastly grew apart, concluding in Nils' determination to not continue in Xandria anymore. Especially since all members are friends first and foremost, any more compromises had been even more hurtful. The band regrets Nils' decision, yet is respecting it at the same time, even though everyone is really sad about it."

"Us, the remaining members in Xandria, are still a bit shocked and paralyzed and we can hardly imagine to continue without our yearlong fellow. We went through so many good and rough times together - Nils always gave everything for the band and we all have to be very grateful for his work! Nils - we will never forget the times we had together and we wish you all the best for the future! Thanks for everything! At this stage no replacement has been determined. We will carefully look for an adequate successor. Nils kindly will play any show confirmed so far, if no replacement will be found by the time of these very shows."

Wasn't he the original singers husband? As the band are so much better now with the new singer, he is probably getting an ear-bashing at home.
