Update: Asomvel will definitely be performing at the Full Moon Dog Festival next month!
Harrogate’s very own heavy metal powerhouse Asomvel will possibly split up. The band issued the following statement, which was published on the Way of Darkness Festival website earlier today:
“ASOMVEL are no longer performing as a band for the foreseeable future. Although musically tighter than ever, guitarist, Lenny Robinson, does not feel the current line-up compares favourably to the classic ASOMVEL featuring founder member, Jay-Jay Winter ( R.I.P.) As many people are aware, Jay-Jay was an incredible persona, and the void left when he tragically passed has proven impossible to fill. ASOMVEL would like to thank Rich Walker for endeavours above & beyond as well as his continued support. Anybody who bought an ASOMVEL record, got off their arse & went to a gig, shared a Whiskey with Jay-Jay Winter, treasure it!”
The band had joined forces with new vocalist/bassist Conan in August, with a statement by the band announcing the ‘rebirth’. See blog entry HERE.
Thanks for dropping in!
