Back to Solo
Bei den holländischen Symphonic Metallern Delain hat’s geknallt! Die Band wird fortan als Solo-Projekt des Keyboarders Martjin Westerholt weitergeführt. Delain-Sängerin Charlotte Wessels schockiert heute die Metal-Welt mit einem ausführlichen Statement auf Facebook. Demzufolge steigt sie nach 16 Jahren aus der Band aus, genauso wie Otto Schimmelpenick van der Ojie (Bass), Timo Somers (Gitarren) und Joey Marin de Boer (Drums).
Das volle Statement von Charlotte, wie sie es in den Sozialen Medien gepostet hat, ist hier zu lesen:
«Delain has been my world for nearing 16 years, which is half of my life and my entire career. So it is with a heavy heart that I am confirming that Delain will continue as Martijn’s solo project, and my involvement with Delain ends here.
So where do we go from here? Otto, Timo and Joey are also leaving Delain, but will carry on making music with their own projects. Make sure you’re following what they’re up to. I can’t wait to see and hear how they will take the world by storm. Martijn will continue with Delain, and although it may be painful at first to see a Delain that I’m not a part of, I do wish him the very best in this new chapter. Like any relationship, our creative partnership has required work at times, but it has also been incredibly fruitful and I am grateful for all the things that we made together. Finally, I hope that Delain remains a positive force in everyone’s lives. We Are The Others, always will be, and none of this changes that.
As for myself, I’ll keep writing and performing music. It is the thing that gives me joy and purpose. I’m beyond grateful for my amazing community on Patreon, something that was supposed to be a side project from Delain, but will now be the primary place that I release music and create art and community.
This platform allows me to keep creating independently and I am thankful for all patrons that make this possible. I am dedicated to bring you my absolute best, and look forward to making magic with all of you.»
