Gli americani Overlorde annunciano che il co-fondatore John “Kong” Bunucci ha deciso di lasciare la band per motivi personali: il suo posto è stato affidato al bassista Bobby Devlin. La band, inoltre, fa sapere che il suo nuovo album dovrebbe vedere la luce entro fine 2018. In merito al nuovo innesto nella lineup, ecco i commenti degli altri musicisti, a partire dal fondatore Mark Edwards:

“I shared some videos of Bobby with the band members. The first one was a blurry video of Bobby playing an unplugged Alembic bass.  But from that video alone, it was obvious Bobby was someone we needed to reach out to. Here is that video:

Lo stesso Bobby Devlin ha detto:

“From the moment the band contacted me about auditioning for the bass duties in Overlorde, I was fired up!  Their brand of power metal is right in my wheelhouse.  From the very first jam with the band I felt right at home and the energy was inspiring.  I anticipate great things in the near future for Overlorde!”

Questo il commento di George Janeira:

“The news was tough to swallow after playing with John, “Kong”, to some pretty amazing riffs geared towards the upcoming Overlorde CD. But I do wish him the best of luck in all of his endeavors and I know we will remain close and jam once in a while.  In the meantime, a new page is turning and I am stoked to Metal-Out with Bobby and the rest of the guys for the next chapter of Overlorde.  Stay tuned!”

Questo il commento di George Tsalikis:

Despite my not having been in the band that long and not having developed as close a bond with John as Mark has throughout the years, it did come as a shock when John announced his desire to part ways from the band.  I wish John nothing but the best in all aspects of his life.  I now look forward to working with our new incredible bassist Bobby.  Bobby not only overwhelmingly impressed us with his playing but clicked excellently on a personal level with everyone in the band.  I cannot wait to unleash a new album of killer Heavy Metal tunes with this new lineup.”

Chiusura affidata a Mark Edwards: “There are people that come into your life at just the right time. For a reason, as if by fate.  John is an example of that. An awesome bassist and songwriter, together we created something special and unique in Overlorde. Our friendship flourished even while Overlorde was disbanded from 1989 through 2000, and this made Overlorde’s 2000 reformation that much more special. I am going to miss the partnership and connection to John.  At the same time, Bobby is also an example of fate. The perfect person being available at just the right time. A shot of adrenaline. I know that the new album will be exceptional and invite our fans to come along for the ride.”
