The symphonic metal band with light electronic elements noted for having a penchant for myths with an exotic flair is definitely not the same without Lisa Middelhauve. They are now officially looking for a new vocalist to replace their former leader which left 2 weeks ago for personal reasons.
Here’s the quote from their official web site on Middelhauve’s departure:
“Lisa Middelhauve is not the singer of Xandria anymore. After almost eight years of successful work together she decided to leave the band due to personal reasons. For some time now Lisa didn´t feel comfortable with her role as Xandria´s front woman anymore and wants to step aside to make it possible for the band to find someone who can stand behind Xandria completely. A step that we all regret, but is highly respected. We want to thank her for the great, successful and unforgettable time we had together and wish her only the best for the future! Thank you – your contribution to Xandria and everything you did for the band we will never forget!”
Here’s one of their last music videos with Lisa Middelhauve released in summer 2007, “Save My Life”
