Phil's leaving Elvellon
Unfortunately we have to announce another bad news today:
Elvellon and Phil will go their separate ways in the future.
We have continued to evolve as a band since Phil's entry in 2014. And so we grew to a band that demands not only rehearsals and performances, but also a lot of time and energy for things like organization, bureaucracy and communication.
Not everyone can combine this effort with their personal goals and circumstances and so Phil has decided to leave Elvellon to explore new musical horizons. As his friends and longtime comrades, we also want him to do what is good and right for him.
But do not worry, friends: The next concerts will take place as planned, even if Phil himself will not be on stage with us anymore.
We wish you all the best for the future, Phil, and thank you in every respect for the past four years and for what we have achieved in these together!
Phil also wants to say a few personal words to you:
"First and foremost, I want to thank the fans, especially those who accompanied Elvellon from the very beginning and continue to do so, for their years of support from afar and in front of the stage. Together with Nele, Gilbert, Maddin and Pascal, you are responsible for the beautiful hours that I spent as part of Elvellon on stage.
Honestly, I've known for quite some time that I could not bring Elvellon forward forever. There were always moments where I did not think I could do the work (and most of all the rest, who put a lot more work into the band besides the songwriting). At the same time, at the beginning of my doubts, I saw how great it was going for the band right from the beginning - yes, almost magically - and I did not want to slow down Elvellon because of my personal problems. I overlooked that "not slowing down" is not the same as "giving 120 percent".
After covering all my free time with both Elvellon and various other projects for years, now it's time for me to step on the brakes."
A replacement on the bass does not exist yet.
