Bangalore Choir frontman David Reece has announced that he is leaving Tango Down after two albums to pursue other interests.

“I’m posting to inform you I’ve left Tango Down as of last nights show,” said Reece. “I wish to thank each and every one of you for your love and support! I’m focusing on my recording and touring with EZ Livin’ as well as future solo projects — see you all soon.”

“As in life all journeys come to a fork in the road,” continued his former Tango Down bandmates. “Our brother of the last 4 years, two albums and playing throughout the United States will be moving on as we part ways. We wish David all the best in his endeavors both personal and musical. Look out for him as we are sure he has a lot more left in his tank. As for what is ahead of the rest of the Charming Devils — well Tango Down is NOT done by any means we can assure you. We are already in writing mode and have plans underway for what our next step will be. Rest assured we promise that Tango Down will continue to satisfy everyone as we have in the past and continue to raise the bar again and again.”

David Reece, who briefly replaced Udo Dirkschneider in Accept on 1989’s ‘Eat The Heat’ prior to forming Bangalor Choir, recorded two albums with Tango Down — 2012’s ‘Identity Crisis’ and 2014’s ‘Charming Devil’. His first recording with EZ Livin’ was released earlier this year under the name ‘Firestorm’.

In a review of the ‘Identity Crisis’ album Sleaze Roxx said, “Identity Crisis is a strange name for this release, because I honestly think Tango Down have finally found their true identity. Hopefully David Reece sticks around long enough to expand on what the New York band have created here, although considering their track record with frontmen I won’t hold my breath.” At the time the band had released three albums, with Reece representing the group’s third vocalist in that short timeframe. Both Kivel Records president John Kivel and guitarist Scott ‘Rif’ Miller found the comment regarding the band’s track record to be rude and negative.
