Strangelet calls it quits - new band SpiteFuel takes over

At the beginning of this week the sad and surprising information reached me that one of my favorite upcoming bands called Strangelet have decided to call it quits. As they said on Facebook about the split in their own words "(...) So we have to announce, that we chose to say “Good Bye” and break up with STRANGELET because we’re no longer able to create and live the music together.(...)".

The good point in all this sadness is that the spirit of the band will continue to live on in a new band. Three members who were already active in Strangelet ( Stefan Zörner - Vocals |  Tobias Eurich - Guitars and Finn Janetzky - Bass) will also play in the new bands and perform on the same instruments.

The lineup will be completed by Timo Pflüger - Guitars as well as Björn-P. Hessenmüller on the drums (both known of the band Devils Darling). Most of the gigs that Strangelet have announced in the past months will be taken over from SpiteFuel. Here the exact list of shows the new band will play in Germany in 2016:

07. Mai - W:O:A Warmup Party, Ochsenfurt
22. Juli - Summernight Open Air, Mühlenpark Mechernich
22. Oktober - The Ranch Festival, Hechingen
05. November - Bonfire Support, ROFA Bad Friedrichshall

SpiteFuel also plans to hit the studio in summer 2016 to record the debut album which will be released via MDD Records later on.
