Löve Razër singer Sydney Snow steps down from tribute band 80s Gone Wild reportedly due to voice issues
It has been almost a year since we’ve heard anything new from Löve Razër. The Canadian rockers featuring frontman Sydney Snow, lead guitarist Micky Bonez and bassist Metal Mike released a video for their single “Call of The Wild” back in late October 2021. For the last seven years, Snow has also fronted the “hair bands” tribute group 80s Gone Wild but his run with that band has now come to an end.
The following message was posted on 80s Gone Wild – A Tribute To Hair Bands‘ Facebook page earlier today (with slight edit):
“OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Syd has informed us he does not want to perform at our remaining 2022 gigs. He is having vocal issues and as he puts it, “He needs Hard Rest!”. Syd also wants to just concentrate on his solo material going forward.
Since we don’t want to cancel dates that we have committed to for the remainder of the year, we have come to the mutual decision to move on without him. We want to thank him for 7 years as our frontman and wish him all the best with his future endeavours.
It is our pleasure to welcome Mark DeBlock into the lead vocalist slot for 80s GONE WILD! For those of you who know Mark from his previous bands, and from his work with The Van Halen Invasion, he is a powerhouse of a singer! Be sure to check out our upcoming shows with Mark fronting the band – it’s going to be EPIC!!”
Snow then later posted the following message on his own Facebook account (with slight edits):
“Update: I’ve stepped down as frontman of 80s Gone Wild. Its been great to play along side top notch musicians I’m proud to call friends. The last 7 years with the band have helped me improve as a singer & performer and it’s been lots of fun seeing all the happiness music brings people. I am forever thankful and to the fans.
Time for something new. I’d wish the guys luck but they aren’t going to need it. Whatever form the band takes moving forward it’s definitely going to rock.”
