ELIXIR ANNOUNCE FAREWELL SHOWS

Heavy metal heathens Elixir have announced that they will play their final farewell shows later this year.

.

The Sons of Odin will play at The Bridge House in London on October 13th, and at De Verlichte Geest in Roselare, Belgium on the 20th.

.

Guitarist Phil Denton commented: “Since we reformed in 2002, we have had a fantastic 10 years playing live in Greece, Germany, Holland, Sweden, Italy, Bulgaria, Norway, Spain and the USA and have received warm and enthusiastic welcomes from fans in those countries. We will miss you as much as we will miss playing together on stage. We also had the opportunity to record three more studio albums since our reformation, and feel that our most recent, 2010’s ‘All Hallows Eve’, is not a bad way to finish our recording career.

.

“I love Paul, Norman, Kevin and Nigel like brothers and will miss their talent, friendship and above all, their humor and wish them well for the future. We plan to have a good drink together and enjoy each other’s company one last time when we are together for the final shows, and then plan to finish off in style by rocking hard on stage! We hope to see you there!”

.

Denton and vocalist Paul Taylor have decided to continue working together, using material that was originally intended for a new Elixir album for the duo’s new project.

.

Denton stated: “As it will not be the original five members, we didn’t wish to continue as Elixir. However, our new band will be in much the same vein, and we may well include a few Elixir favourites in our live set. We are currently looking for an awesome drummer and bass player to work with. A good personality and sense of humour, along with a professional attitude is what we are looking for most.”

Well hello there!
