Unfortunately they are pretty sad news this time: Our singer Mephisto is stepping back from the band due to personal reasons. Here is a statement from him for you:
„Dear fans and friends,
Due to personal reasons I have to step back from my position as singer for Pray For Pain.
I want to personally thank each and every one of you who came to our shows and supported us and hopefully will in the future.
The most gratitude though goes out to my amazing band mates Alko (drums), Mani (guitar) and Kevin (bass). Thank you for over eleven years of hard work, amazing shows, terrible shows, great times, ups and downs. What a fuckin ride it has been.
I wish you guys all the best on where ever this crazy road may take you. It’s impossible to put into words how much this means to me. Just know, you are always in my heart!
This is not a goodbye, just a see you later.
So… See you later.
We are extremely sad to lose him as a bandmate, not only because the fact that we already did music together for so long, where we could see him develop and grow into his then new role as a singer over time, but also because of his great creative output that he provided. I mean shit he drew the whole artwork of our last EP by hand. It´s sad to lose him.
Even tho we are sad, we are still happy that everything went down without bad blood and to still have him as a friend. We absolutely understand and support his decision.
For the rest of us: We will keep going of course! Maybe a bit different now, but we are still going to play our EU-tour in May.
So stay with us, hopefully we will see some of you guys at one of those Shows!
