REBELLION Loses Three Members

Guitarist Uwe Lulis, drummer Gerd Lücking and guitarist Simone Wenzel have left the German metal band REBELLION.

Commented Uwe: "REBELLION was also my band and I would be pleased if Tomi [Göttlich, bass] and Micha [vocalist Michael Seifert] will continue successfully."

Göttlich and Seifert are currently contemplating whether and how they should carry on with the band.

Stated Tomi: "We ask ourselves whether REBELLION without Uwe can still be REBELLION. On the other hand, one always depends on their fans, [so] we would be pleased if our fans told us their opinion about it."

Added Michael: "Tomi and I wish Uwe, Gerd and Simone honestly all the best with their new projects."

Gerd and Uwe have plans to form a new band while Simone has joined VERNISSAGE.

REBELLION's latest full-length album (the third part of the "History of the Vikings" saga), "Arise: From Ragnarök to Ginnungagap - The History of the Vikings Volume III", came out in July 2009 via Massacre Records.
