I've seen that there have been some questions about Amarans future...so here's some news for you. I must also apologise for not giving you any answers earlier. Cheer / Ronnie ------------------------------------------ As you might have noticed there are a lot of things happening in the Amaran camp at the moment. You have read here before that Kari has left Amaran to concentrate on his new band, Sibliance. In addition to this we must now inform you that our bass player Ronnie Bergerståhl has also decided to leave the band. His motivation for this is that he didnt really share the vision the rest of us had of what musical direction we would take with our new songs. Having this said, we have also some good news for you guys: Our original drummer Robin Bergh has decided to join Amaran again! Johanna and I are very pleased with this since Robin is a really good friend of us and since Pär, who took Robins position when he quitted, has moved away from Stockholm (making rehearsal much more difficult). There are however no personal indifferences between any of us, I guess things like this can happen to bands every now and then. We send our appreciations to Kari, Ronnie and Pär for everything they've done for the band and wish them the best of luck with their future projects! So, at this very moment we are out looking for a new guitarist and a new bass player. If you play any of these instruments and think you have what it takes to join Amaran, dont hesitate to drop us a line. We are now busy writing songs for our third album, which we have planned to record around May 2005. Personally I believe the new songs have that classical Amaran vibe, but perhaps somewhat stripped to give Johanna more space for her voice. Our previous promise to deliver a killer album for you guys is still going to be kept!!
