"It is always bad news when a member of a family departs but in the current circumstances it’s for the sake of music. Christos Kyrkilis (keyboards) left the band in friendly terms. Therefore, the band decided to go on as a quartet. Since Domenik (Papaemmanouil) is more than efficient, he is going to take charge of the keyboards concerning the studio recordings. It’s better for the chemistry of the band to remain as a quartet. We wish Christos all the best in his future endeavours.
Since (drummer) Kostis Papalexopoulos is still in exile in London, UK, the band had to come up with a new member behind the drum kit. We are more than happy and proud to present you Konstantinos Galimis (AGNOSIA, ex-RAVENCULT)."
Konstantinos (pictured above) states: “I am very happy and proud to be part of this new era of the band! I can't wait to perform on some amazing tunes behind Wastefall's drum kit."
A photo of the new Wastefall lineup can be seen below:
Wastefall recently launched its official comeback to the metal music scene, with a new song. New plans are also underway regarding a new album, live dates and many more. The band has been working on new material for sometime now, and is currently in talks for a new record deal and touring dates.
The band has published a new song, 'Recycle The Elite', via it's official YouTube and Facebook pages asking fans to be their ultimate critic regarding the band's new tunes.
"There is nothing like being part of a band's decision-making process. Each and every one of us would love to be in the studio with our favorite bands talking about which songs should be in the album and why. Don't forget we are also fans of this genre!", co-founder guitarist/lead vocalist Domenik Papaemmanouil stated.
Alex Katsigiannis, co-founder guitarist, added: "After years of being in hiatus, we now want to re-engage with our fans, or potential ones. We want to make them be part of the album process and part of the Wastefall-family. We have many surprises up our sleeves that can't be named right now. What I can tell you is that Wastefall is here to stay!"
Listen to the track below:
The band will shortly be hitting the stage, so stay tuned and be sure to follow Wastefall on their Facebook page for upcoming news, announcements, concert dates and many more surprises.
Wastefall's new EP, entitled Meridiem, will be released this spring 2013 in digital form. This is but the beginning for Wastefall, whose return is going to be really fruitful. Finally, a video-clip will be shot by LensOrama team for one of the new songs.
