Bassist Rob Randell Leaves Heaven's BasementUK hard rock band Heaven’s Basement have announced the departure of bassist Rob Randell.

The band states, “It is our sad duty to announce that for personal reasons Rob has decided to leave the band. This is to take place immediately and so he will no longer be playing any of the up coming shows.

This is a sad day for us as a band as Rob has been our friend and partner in crime since the beginning. But it is his desire to now move on to different pastures and as sad as we are, we respect that and support him in every way. He is and always will be a friend of Heaven’s Basement.

With his help we have managed to secure a temporary replacement to fulfil the up coming shows, until a permanent replacement can be found. All of us would like to wish Rob luck for the future, see below for a message from Rob.”

“I am writing this blog with great regret for I have decided to leave Heaven’s Basement and move on to pastures new. I have had 10 amazing years of highs and lows working as a musician. But after much deliberation, battleing with my own thoughts and feelings, I have come to realize that my heart is just not in it any more.

Myself and the guys remain the best of friends, and I wish them all the success they deserve. They really are a great bunch of guys, whom I admire and respect. I have shared many, many good times with them over the years. The memories of which will stay with me forever.

I just want to thank you all for your fantastic and loyal support. I have come across many bands, but few have the dedicated followers that Heaven’s Basement have generated and it’s a pleasure to have met you all!

Please continue to spread the word of The Basement and get behind the boys and whoever steps into my place. I hope he has a good sense of humour as he’s gonna need it to get through the cannings!!!

All that remains for me to say really, is a very, very fond farewell to you all, and maybe I’ll see you all at a gig sometime in the future, but as a fan this time.”

From me to you,Rob Randell.
