Eastbourne genre avoiders The James Cleaver Quintet have announced that they have parted ways with their now former bassist, Jimmy Diego. Luckily, the outfit have already recruited a new bassist, with ex-Darkshaft member, Michael Triponel, stepping in. The band posted the following statement on their Facebook page earlier this morning:
“Good morning world. So it is with heavy hearts that we are sorry to announce the departure of our bassist and good friend, Jimmy. Unfortunately due to many reasons, Jimmy just doesn’t feel that he can commit as much as he would like to The JCQ any longer and has decided to step down from bass duties. We wish him the very best of luck with all his future endeavours.
But fear not! Thankfully we have found the perfect replacement in the form of one Michael Triponel. Some of you may recognise him from Darkshaft fame, and if you haven’t yet, check them out immediately. You won’t be disappointed.
NOW THE GOOD NEWS – we will be announcing the release date, and a new track from our second album in just a few days! Stay tuned to our page for updates, we cannot wait to start this new chapter and share what we’ve been working so hard on for the past few months with you all.
Much love, The JCQ.”
