LACRIMAS PROFUNDERE vocalist and co-founder Christopher Schmidt decided to leave the band. Here is the relevant announcement as posted on the bands official website:
"I dont feel able to combine the permanent stress (of touring, concerts and of the general turbulences regarding the music business) with my "normal" life and my future."
In this case he often quotes his collegues of the "Strokes" with: "I wonna be forgotten and I don´t wonna be reminded."
Christopher doesn´t want to leave the stage without saying "thank you" to all the fans of Lacrimas Profundere for all the brilliant years of "Rock´n´sad".
The complete Band regret his decision but feel pretty happy about the fact that Christopher will be with Lacrimas Profundere as a lyricist and songwriter. The "LACRIMAS sound" will not change, because the brothers Oliver and Christopher co-operate as before, and Christopher will put some vocallines on the next album too!
