“Life is full of surprises sometimes, and it throws you unexpected and challenging situations. In that said, we need to announce that unfortunately after 10 years playing together, our beloved singer, Ronnie Nyman has stepped out from NIGHTRAGE for personal reasons. We went through a lot with him, as blood brothers, in our journey together, but we are still best friends and there’s no hard feelings. At the same time we need to respect his decision. We wish him the best in his future endeavors and to always be happy. We understand him and he will always be a great friend for us.
On the other hand, we have some GREAT NEWS to announce. Jimmie Strimell is back in NIGHTRAGE!!!!!!!!!! As our new singer after so many years, he is very hungry and energized to the fullest to give his very best. He already did all his vocals for the 11 new demo songs with much success, and we can’t wait to record the new album with Jimmie.
THE SHOW MUST GO ON!!!!!!!!!!”.
Jimmie Strimell states: “Hi everyone! I have been off stage for over three years now and FINALLY I’m back, it feels Great to say that I will join NIGTRAGE again after a long time away from the band, as their new singer.
Hope to see you NIGHTRAGE fans out there soon enough, and I’m so stoked to record the new album songs, that I must say it feels, this will be the best album ever for the band, and I’m so happy to be a part of this.
See you all soon
Ronnie Nyman took to social media to share the following message: “After some time of long and hard consideration I have come to the conclusion that it’s time for me to step down from my position as vocalist of NIGHTRAGE. This was not an easy decision for me to make. After 10 years in the band it has become a big part of me and Marios and the guys have become my brothers for life. My love for NIGHTRAGE and for my brothers is still strong but I have come to realize that I have reached a point in my life where I right now can’t give the band all the focus and dedication that it deserves. I’m really happy that Jimmie is coming back to take over the microphone once again, and I wish him and the guys all the best for the future to come!
See you all out there!
Long live NIGHTRAGE!
