Marcus has decided to leave Aeon permanently to focus more on his other band Souldrainer. Aeon will be having a more busy tour schedule from now on and Marcus feels that Aeon is taking to much of his time.
We have been having a guy named Tony Östman as a stand-in for Marcus lately, and he did his first show with us on March 1st at the House Of Metal festival. Tony was also planned to act as a stand-in on the G/A/S Obscura-tour that kicks off tomorrow (March 22). But since Marcus obviously needs a stand-in from time to time to fill his shoes, we and Marcus came to a conclusion that it’s better for him to step down and let Tony take his position permanently.
Aeon is not a side project and we need all members to aim at the same goal and to have Aeon as the main band / project. So with this we would like to thank Marcus for his time in the band and we wish him all the best with his future endeavors.
And with that being said, lets raise our horns high and welcome Tony Östman on-board as the permanent bass player of Aeon.
