Check out both studio diaries below:
SuidAkrA frontman/founder Arkadius Antonik recently issued the following update: "As on the previous two releases, it will be a concept album again, created by Kris Verwimp in cooperation with us. Our new concept includes a lot of new elements and suprises which will be reflected in the music as well. More info, pics, artwork and videos will be revealed soon!"
Long time bassist Marcus Riewaldt recently announced his departure from SuidAkrA. He issued the following statement: "After more than 250 shows and 10 years being in the band, I feel that now time has come to change my priorities a bit and see what else life has to offer for me. No hard feelings involved; it's just that I cannot motivate myself for another writing-rehearsing-recording-promoting-touring cycle and that I'm really annoyed by some of the music business mechanisms that one has to deal with in order to continue this beautiful and exciting, but at the same time very time and energy-consuming hobby. I wish Suidakra much luck and success for the future — it would all be well deserved!"
The band has secured a replacement bassist in Tim Siebrecht, who was a stand-in guitar player for SuidAkrA on several occasions in recent years.
SuidAkrA released a video diary from their second trip to India, where they played with KREATOR at the Bangalore Open Air on June 16th, 2011. Watch the clip below:
