Original bassist Adrian Jackson of My Dying Bride has left the band. He's left for a future in the USA and doesn't seem to have plans for My Dying Bride. He annouced his departure to the band on the 5th January.

Here is a statement by My Dying Bride:

"We have parted in good faith and wish him luck with his new life out there. It has absolutely no effect on any of the gigs we have confirmed. We have already rehearsed his replacement to gig readiness and she is looking forward to playing for the first time in My Dying Bride. More on his replacement, Lena, soon.

Secondly we have had to replace long term stand in drummer / thunder truck / Uberlunatic John Bennet due to his work commitments. He is saddened by the fact he cannot drum for My Dying Bride anymore as are we, but we understand that we all have to make a living and wish him luck too in his job.

It's not all doom and gloom though as we have been rehearsing with excellent drummer Dan Mullins of Thine, Bal Sagoth and Sermon Of Hypocrisy fame and again he too is now at gig readiness. MDB has a new fresh focused feel to it and we are looking forward to the shows with a vengeance".

The upcoming shows that My Dying Bride will play will be:

23.03.07 - Petofi Csornok, Budapest, Hungary (Metalmania Festival)
24.03.07 - Spodek, Katowice, Poland (Metalmania Festival)
20.04.07 - Paradiso, Amsterdam, Netherlands
21.04.07 - Pestpop Festival, Wieze, Belgium
16.06.07 - ArtMania Festival, Sibiu, Romania
11.08.07 - M'era Luna Festival, Hildesheim, Germany (Flughafen Drispenstedt)
12.08.07 - Summer Darkness Festival, Utrecht, Netherlands

Wasn't their drummer one of the original members? Still anxiously waiting for a London date.

I think it's not a such big loss. I hope I'd see them in Katowice (amongs Testament, Sepultura and many other bands).
