Vocalist Hansi Kürsch has confirmed that he has stepped down from Demons & Wizards.
The news of Kürsch’s departure from the project follows the arrest of bandmate Jon Schaffer as a result of his involvement in the riots of the US Capitol building in Washington, D.C. on January 6th 2021.
Schafer was arrested on January 17th 2021 and is reportedly being held on six felony charges.
In a short statement provided to RockHard, Kürsch confirmed that he has notified both Schaffer and label Century Media Records of his decision to leavy the band.
“I told Jon and Century Media on Monday that I was leaving the Demons & Wizards project with immediate effect. My collaboration with Jon in Demons & Wizards is over.”
At the time of writing, there’s no word from Schaffer regarding Kürsch‘s departure and/or the future of Demons & Wizards.
