Vocalist Sy Keeler has announced his departure with British thrashers ONSLAUGHT.

Band said in a statement: “Due to the nature of the modern-day music industry, some things simply aren’t sustainable year after year and Sy has now taken a different full-time career path.

“We would like to wish Sy and his family all the very best on this new journey through life and give him huge thanks for his immense vocal performances in the band over the years,” statement continued. “We’ve shared so many great experiences, made some very cool records and played some really amazing shows across the globe.

“Unfortunately, nothing lasts forever, and for us as a band, what doesn’t kill us will once again make us stronger.”

ONSLAUGHT‘s upcoming album is due later in the year via AFM Records. It will mark band’s first with record its latest additions, drummer James Perry and guitarist Wayne Dorman.
