Experimental metal unit Igorrr, led by French musician Guitier Serre, have announced the departure of vocalists Laurent Lunoir and Laure Le Prunenec. Their exit coincides with the addition of three new members: Aphrodite Patoulidou (vocals), JB Le Bail (vocals), and Martyn Clement (guitar).
A statement from Serre reads as follows:
"We are working hard for all the summer shows at the moment! Covid didn't help us a lot, to say the least, but this led us to very positive changes in the band: Laurent decided to not get vaccinated, according to his personal beliefs. Even if we disagree with him, we respect his decision of course, however this has some consequences, regarding his ability to travel with us mainly, so, to be part of the line-up for the future. To say it shortly, Laurent is not a part of the project anymore.
"In the meantime, Laure informed us, after this weird 'off' period in our artistic journey that she wanted more time to focus on her private life and didn't show up at the rehearsals. As well, we fully support her. We are of course sad to see a page of Igorrr to be over, and we wish them the best for the future, but this led us to the awesome news : we are welcoming 3 new incredible people in the band: first, the greek soprano Aphrodite Patoulidou and JB Le Bail as our new vocalists, and finally Martyn Clement as our guitar player. It is, as challenging as exciting for us, to present to our audience this new live performance, where we'll play many songs from our last album 'Spirituality and Distortion', plus, of course, some good ol' Igorrr's tunes. Can't wait to see you, and thanks for your support all those years 🤘🏼"
