The COVID-19 pandemic has the entire globe shaken as many fear lives as well as wondering if they will still be employed by the time this nightmare is over. As the economy continues to rattle, bands have also been hit, making them wonder how sustainable it can be during this time. Sadly, we’ve seen quite a few splits. Whether it’s COVID-19 related or not, there’s been changes. Vocalist Sy Keeler is one of them as he decided to quit Onslaught because the music industry isn’t sustainable for him anymore, and it’s time for him to move on with a different career path.
Onslaught issued the following statement:
It is with great sadness to announce that ‘Sy Keeler’ will be leaving his role as vocalist of ‘Onslaught’. Due to the nature of the modern day music industry some things simply aren’t sustainable year after year and Sy has now taken a different full time career path.
We would like to wish Sy and his family all the very best on this new journey through life and give him huge thanks for his immense vocal performances in the band over the years.
We’ve shared so many great experiences, made some very cool records and played some really amazing shows across the globe, unfortunately nothing lasts forever and for us as a band what doesn’t kill us will once again make us stronger.
Let’s hope that Sy will come and make a few surprise guest appearances now and again in the future!”
