Due to musical disagreements singer Monika Pedersen and Sirenia has decided to part ways, here is Monika's statement:
"After much consideration I have chosen to leave Sirenia, but I will continue with music. The reason is, that we have too many musical differences, and I don’t feel like it’s the right band for me. I have had a great time in the band, lots of good experiences and only wish the best for the band in the future.
I want to send a big “Thank You” to all the fans for your support – you haven’t heard the last of me!"
As a result of these circumstances Sirenia will have to pull out of the planned European tour with Therion. The show in Athens will be postponed until may 2008. You have our apologies for this, Sirenia will be back on the road next year. We will use the coming months to find a new singer, as well as composing music for our next album.
Serenia has posted the following message on their official website:
Sirenia is searching for a new female singer. We are looking for a talented singer with experience, a cool image and a strong passion for music. Someone who is willing to give the band a high priority for many years to come. Singers can get in touch on the following adress: firstname.lastname@example.org
