German alternative metallers Aeverium have parted ways with their vocalist Aeva Maurelle. “Today with deep regrets we have to announce the split between AEVERIUM and Aeva Maurelle. We are truly sad about this but we sincerely ask you all for understanding,” posted the band on their social media.
“We’re all deeply sad about this but in the end, there are many things, needs and wishes in a life which do not fit to other important things. The complete band took this heavy decision in totally friendship. Thanks to all fans out there for the past 4 years full of awesomeness!”
The band was founded in 2013 and they released one EP (The Harvest, 2013) and two albums (Break Out, 2015; Time, 2017) with Aeva on vocals, accompanying male vocalist Marcel “Chubby” Romans.
“AEVERIUM WILL GO ON, that’s for sure!!!” assured the band their fans. “We have plenty of new songs already written, we will play all upcoming shows and many things are coming up! We’ll keep you updated soon.”
“We as a band (say family!) just want the best for everyone…so we wish Aeva all the best and loads of love for her professional career and of course her private future! Thank you Aeva from the bottom of our hearts for all these unforgettable moments on stage and backstage!”
In this hard times, Aeverium ask their fans for respecting their and Aeva’s privacy: “We kindly ask all of our fans, friends and visitors for beeing polite and fair in the discussion and please keep distance for writing private mails to both parties. Please no speculation about deeper reasons or problems, so NO fake news…we would highly deny these things from the very beginning. Even if some of you are curious about things…. please respect the following: This step and this very special sad moment belong to us and we can guarantee that it’s a really heavy one….. 😞 ….so please be patient and let us reappraise this case….”
“AEVERIUM and Aeva are keeping their friendship….we’re just going separate ways,” stated the band.
“Dear Everyone, unfortunately, I have to announce that from now on Aeverium and me are going separate ways. THANK YOU to my boys for the unforgettable years that will forever keep us connected. I’m very grateful for every single moment we shared on and off stage. THANK YOU, you lovely people outside, for the amazing time and experiences, we had together,” announced the singer.
Besides Aeverium, Aeva is also familiar to fans of Xandria. She’s been performing with German symphonic metallers live ever since Dutch singer Dianne van Giersbergen left the band in 2017.
For those wondering what will Aeva’s next musical adventures be like, don’t worry. She’s definitely not done with singing. “I won’t be out of sight. Of course, I will go on with my profession as a singer and I’m very curious what is going happen in the future.”
We wish Aeva and Aeverium all the best and will keep you posted about their next steps. Meanwhile, watch Aeverium’s latest video.
