This is from their facebook: "Dear Diablo Swing family. Aside from our wondrous experiences while writing, recording, rehearsing and touring during the last few years, one of our main concerns has been that AnnLouice's own opera career exceedingly has taken up more and more of her time. Hence, our long gaps between shows, and problems planning our operation as a band in general. Unfortunately, this fact has eventually led to AnnLouice leaving Diablo Swing Orchestra to pursue her own career to the fullest. As dear friends first, and a band second, we also separate as such. That being said, we're indeed glad for her success and wish her a thrilling venture like none other! Also — Our mutual thankfulness for the last decade of unison musical creativity as the orchestra we've grown into, sure shines through our creations; and always did, through thick and thin. As you sense by now, here comes the conjunction ”but”. Of course the matter at hand has meant that we somehow had to find a proper solution to continue doing what we simply love so much — creating and performing music as a group. ”Solution” is a poor word of choice really, as no words actually capture what we're trying to convey here, ten years in (!), but yes — Conclusively we have now found a main vocalist replacement. A ”solution” that provides the band with an all new gusto, and which is taking Diablo Swing in prestine directions. Diablo Swing Orchestra finally materializes a new phase, featuring new mojo, delight and energy! Enter Kristin Evegård. And you won't have to wait long to hear her, as we're recording a new single as we speak, with a planned release in late October. Yes, we hear you say, ”less talk, more mojo”, so without any further ado: Presenting the new Diablo Swing Orchestra with Kristin Evegård."
