Elixir Welcome Luke On Bass

 

Elixir are delighted to announce that Luke Fabian will be joining the band on bass. After auditioning several worthy candidates, Elixir guitarist Phil Denton said “Not only does Luke have a natural talent and great technical ability, we could also feel his energy and power driving us through the songs and it felt very natural playing alongside him. We feel confident that Luke will be the right guy to continue Kev’s legacy and also go forward together with us on the next chapter of the Elixir story”.

All of Luke’s musical projects and bands have been centred around sub-genres in modern and extreme metal, and although he remains in his band Pupil Slicer, Elixir marks a departure from this trend. Luke added “Hearing NWOBHM material got me into playing as a young teenager, so I am excited to join Elixir and look forward to gigging and recording with the band, to keep the flag of true, old school British Metal flying”.

Elixir wish to thank founder member and bass player Kevin Dobbs for his massive contribution to the band over the years, and Kev will be performing one last show with Elixir in London next spring, details of which will be announced in September. In the meantime, Luke will commence work on new Elixir material for a prospective release early next year, and will perform live with Elixir at next April’s Keep It True Festival in Germany.
