Das hat eingeschlagen wie eine Bombe, völlig unerwartet gibt Eric Rivers seinen Ausstieg bei den schwedischen Erfolgsrockern mit dem Duracell Hasen am Mikro bekannt. Eric hat die Band vor einer Dekade mitbegründet und sucht sich nun einen Platz in der ersten Reihe eines H.E.A.T. Konzertes. Hier seine Worte zu seinem Ausstieg;

”Its with a heavy heart I have decided to leave H.E.A.T. It’s a decision that’s been brewing inside me for a long time. Its hard to answer the question why I’m leaving, but I just feel done. It’s time for me to get off the ride. And what a ride it has been!
Almost 10 years, five albums, countless tours all over the world… The thing that’s been keeping me in it this long is you guys – the fans. Thank you so much for all your love and support through the years. I will look back on this ride with nothing but great, great memories, meeting and playing in front of you crazy fuckers all over the world.
To my four brothers in the band. Fuckin a. You guys are the best. You’ve been amazing in helping me through this and you will always be a big part of my life! No bad blood what so ever. And if there’s something H.E.A.T has a history of, it’s coming back stronger and better after something like this. I can’t wait to see and hear what you guys come up with!
And the cool part about this is that I can finally go see a H.E.A.T show. See you front row!
Nu ska pappa ta en grögg!
Nothing but love,
Eric Rivers”
