News : Hybrid Nightmares band members part ways

By on May 1, 2018

Melbourne based black metal outfit, Hybrid Nightmares, has announced the departure of two of the band’s members, guitarist Gumley and bassist, Jonny. The news came via the band’s official Facebook page stating the two members will perform their last show with Hybrid Nightmares on Monday, 7th May supporting Ihsahn at Max Watts in Melbourne.

Jonny, one of the founding members of Hybrid Nightmares, is retiring from live shows to focus on other pursuits but will continue his influence behind the scenes with Hybrid Nightmares in a more limited capacity.

Michael, who has been a part of Hybrid Nightmare since 2011, is refocusing his efforts on his guitar school.

However, it is not all doom and gloom for Hybrid Nightmare fans. The band has confirmed they will continue to spread fear across the lands with the enlistment of two new members.

We wish the boys all the best in their new, mortal lives back on Terra. But fear not, Nightlings, for we have already enlisted some renown Aussie metal titans to complete our lineup for the upcoming Divefest and beyond! For now, their identities will remain our little secret, but feel free to speculate for our entertainment.There will be no prizes for correct guesses, only judgment for incorrect ones.
