Earlier this evening, Reign of Fury made two announcements. Ed Westlake has vacated the position of lead guitarist with immediate effect citing personal reasons, and Andy Pilkington has stepped down as manager also with immediate effect. The band will be handling their own managerial-type duties for the moment, and will shortly be looking for a new guitarist.
In the meantime, they were forced to cancel their concert in Bristol yesterday evening for which they have been very apologetic. They instead spent the evening rehearsing a special set so that they can fulfil remaining short-term commitments with a single guitarist.
Both Ed and Andy have asked that fans respect their privacy at the moment, and have no further statements to make.
Given the well-publicised problems that Reign of Fury have fought through and surmounted in the past, we’re sure they’ll battle on regardless.
