It’s been a long and stony way since the release of our second EP »Into the Unknown« last October. A lot of things have changed, while some stayed the same. The most crucial one concerns our bass player.
When we released our current CD, we were already looking for a new bass player, since Matt O. hasn’t been rehearsing with us for about a year. Most people who visited our recent concerts will have noticed the change in line-up and now it’s time to make it official: Matt O. is no longer part of ZERO DIVISION.
The main reason for our split is scheduling conflicts. His activity in other projects and a long stay abroad made time for rehearsing and concerts sparse. Sadly, we couldn’t find an arrangement that would satisfy both parties, so it was the only way to look for a replacement. A departure from a band is always difficult to handle and can strain friendships, but we’re happy to announce that there is no bad blood between us and we continue to support each other whenever possible.
He left a hole that was very difficult to fill, because he helped shape the sound and vision of our band. So naturally, finding someone new was a hard thing to do, not only because Matt’s contribution as a bass player but as a founding member and on-stage-persona. Luckily our band technician, Scott Anderson, was able to help out as a temporary touring bassist. He did his job so well, we invited him as a permanent member of our band.
Scott’s been a part of ZERO DIVISION since day one and whenever we needed a band technician, guitar roadie, driver or manager, he has been there to fill the spot. It’s been long due to get him in front of an audience and now is the time for him to shine. I trust you give him a warm welcome!
There are a lot of other things in the makings right now – I don’t want to give away too much, but we’re looking at some new video material for you! We’ll keep you posted.
