From H.E.A.T’s official website: Our brother and guitar player Dave Dalone has decided to leave the band to pursue new musical challenges. It’s been seven years of nothing but good times with Dave, a fantastic guitar player, songwriter and friend.
We wish him all the best in his plans for the future.
As for now H.E.A.T will continue as a five man band. This will not affect the upcoming gigs nor the upcoming recording of our fourth album, which is due to be released early 2014. This is of course a sad day for all of us, but we’re positive that H.E.A.T will carry on as normal, making kick ass albums and touring the world.
In Daves own words:
“I’ve always been a great fan of melodic rock. For me, H.E.A.T started out as the passion project of my dreams, and turned into the great and strong melodic rock band that it is today.
I want to thank each and everyone involved and all of the great fans that made this journey possible for me. I have been to places, met so many nice people, experienced great moments that will stay in my heart forever.
I leave this band because, I have always believed in the fact that you should always stay true to your heart and follow your dreams, no matter what! I still have great faith in H.E.A.T and nothing but love for all of the members in the band, they will always be my brothers
Thank you everyone and Keep on Dreaming”.
