FANS, FRIENDS AND SUPPORTERS- THIS POST ANNOUNCES THE END OF EVE’S APPLE.
Sorry to rush in like this - But we just wanted to make sure that all of you read this and understand why we decided to officially end Eve’sApple.
IN THE BEGINNING it was only a very rough idea - some women, singers, that were pissed off by a male dominated business who decided to do their own thing. We wanted to help new singers understand the music industry and we wanted to show everybody that the female fronted rock/metal scene is not about bitch fights, gossip and diet marathons. It was the beginning of a new family and a whole new world opened up to many of us when we found out that we are not alone - and not lonely - in this business.
THE SECOND AND THIRD YEAR brought a lot of work … The group had become bigger and bigger within only a few months. The work load to maintain the daily postings, organization, etc. became overwhelming.
WE ARE TIRED. After such a long time in which we worked toward the success of EsA - each in her own way, promoting, organizing, connecting, creating, writing - we can see the results and they are amazing! We look back on 3 years of sisterhood, networking, more than 9.000 likes on Facebook, countless followers on Twitter and the brand EVE’S APPLE that has a value in our musical scene that one can not negate so easily. There have been photoshoots, interviews, radio shows and even two unforgettable shows at MFVF. This is, in one word, success! But the majority of our members are exhausted and unable to devote the time and energy needed to continue on.
WE HAVE DECIDED to close Eve’s Apple, but we will maintain our private informal community chat page, so the existing Apples can still be in touch with each other- We are more than friends, we are sisters, and we intend to stay that way. We will also leave up the main Facebook page, because it would be plain stupidity to throw away 9.000 likes and a CI that is unique in music business.
Thank you for all of your support and love. This is not goodbye; you will see us and can follow all of us in our individual projects, and out on the road.
A documentary about our journey as Eve’s Apple is being edited as we speak, and we look forward to it as a bittersweet work, the final monument for EsA… our personal “End of an Era”, so to say.
All our Love from the Orchard-
VOA warmly welcomes French soprano Clémentine Delauney and Austrian singer Siegfried Samer as new front vocalists!
In addition, VOA is going “back to the roots” and reunites founding members Werner Fiedler VOA (guitars), Chris Kamper (synths), Mike Koren (bass) and Thomas Caser (drums).
It was mostly a decision by me – Thomas – the only remaining founding member.
I will tell the truth, I will tell you that Visions Of Atlantis is homeward bound and will sail the old and known musical paths. The paths that were initially discovered with the founding members through friendship and the passion for the music we wanted to create.
Although the journey, after new shores have been discovered since “Trinity”, has been a successful one, the work and musical outcome became blurrier and blurrier in the end and has finally ended up as something the initial idea & spirit is not existent in anymore.
Many things have happened, some good, some bad. Sometimes the bad prevail the good as sailing long routes may change people and demands a lot of energy and endurance….
Mutiny always also comes with a price…
Therefore, we have decided to hire new crew, strike sails, and turn back to the course we originally bound outward on. The sea is dark, the waters deep and unknown…
This is and will be the last and final line up of VOA ever! We are working on a new album as you read this, shows are planned and will be announced soon.
This is more VOA than the band ever was in the past years.
Nevertheless, sincere gratitude goes out to Mario Plank & Maxi Nil Official and we wish all the best to MARTIN HARB OFFICIAL, Cris Tían!
Over the next days, we will post statements from our new and not so new members of VOA.
The former members Maxi Nil, Mario Plank, Cris Tían and Martin Harb will also issue statements through the official VOA Facebook page but will reveal more detailed statements on their sites.
