Tygers of Pan Tang part ways with guitarist Micky Crystal
UK rockers Tygers of Pan Tang have parted ways with their guitarist Micky Crystal who was in the band for the last seven years. Crystal played on the Tygers of Pan Tang album Tygers of Pan Tang (2016) and Ritual (2019).
Mighty Music‘s press release indicates in part (with slight edits):
“After seven years as their guitarist Tygers of Pan Tang‘s Micky Crystal is to leave the band. Micky’s legacy is two well-received albums and a string of dates across the world including visits to the USA, South America, and Japan.
His Facebook page noted, “I am proud of the music we have created and the things this lineup has achieved, I have developed and grown both as a musician and as a person and I feel this is the perfect time to open the door to a new chapter and new goals. I wish the band all the best for the future”.
The band stated:
“Micky was another great guitarist who made a serious contribution to the work of the band. Following in the footsteps of previous Tygers’ guitarists is never an easy task but Micky carried the torch in style”.
The band, whose current album “Ritual” has received unanimously positive reviews, expect to announce a replacement in the coming weeks.
Tygers’ founder member Robb Weir said, “Once again the Tygers will be welcoming a new guitarist and I speak for the rest of the band when I say that we are looking forward to seeing everyone at the gigs that are currently being planned”.
“Ritual” was released by Mighty Music in November and can be ordered here.”
