Negative Parts Ways With Guitarist


January 15, 2008

Negative’s longtime guitarist Sir Christus is no longer in the band, Negative will start recording their fourth album as a five-piece.

“We decided that it’s best to continue without Sir Christus. This is not a hasty decision, we’ve talked about this many times and this is really the best thing for all of us. There’s no hard feelings on either side”, says lead singer Jonne Aaron.

“It’s just like any long-lasting relationship, people can grow apart and end up wanting different things. Negative will of course keep going on, no doubt about that, this will not affect our future plans”, Jonne continues.

Negative will start the recording sessions for their fourth album with producer Mikko Karmila (Nightwish, Children Of Bodom) in February. “We feel very confident about the new songs, and the mood inside the band is relaxed and relieved. We’re concentrating 100% on the new album now, and we’ll bring in the new guitarist on the gigs following the release of our new record. We’ll let you know more when we have something to tell you”, Jonne says.
