It is with much sadness that we must announce the departure of Grae Tennick as vocalist for MORPHEUS RISING.
Grae has fronted the band from the beginning, and has been heavily involved in the writing of all the current material. Sadly, due to family commitments, Grae has decided to move from the front of the band into an offstage role looking after the band's communications, much of which he has been doing for the last two years in addition to his vocal duties.
The last two years have been a really exciting time; getting the band on the road initially – writing, rehearsing, recording, the first show supporting GUN at the Duchess in York in June 2009; the first tour, Lords of the North in 2010, and many more gigs too. Grae's contribution has been invaluable and we are very grateful for everything he has done for the band both onstage and off.
We have all become firm friends with Grae and his family over the last two years and are all very sorry to see him go, but fully understand that the unexpected opportunity which led to this decision was one which could not be missed. We wish him the very best of luck for the future in everything he does. We are also very pleased that he will stay within the MR family, and will still be part of the team.
MORPHEUS RISING are currently seeking a replacement singer to fill the vacancy, meanwhile the schedule does not slacken. We continue to write and record, ready to be back, all guns blazing with a revised line up in the very near future. Visit the website at www.morpheusrising.co.uk for the latest news!
