Berlin, Monday – October 22nd 2012

I don’t own a smartphone & was focusing my attention on the road over the weekend, so I’ve unfortunately not been able to make a proper statement until now. I’ve only this morning finally had the opportunity to look over all the press & comments. It’s become clear to me that a couple things need to be set straight.

I’d like everyone to know that I had already decided & informed Mad Sin that I had the desire to leave the band approximately a year ago . I agreed to stay on until the end of the year in the hopes of a smooth transition & to help out with the new album. Not informing Mad Sin of my participation in the Voice of Germany was unprofessional, I am man enough to admit that, but due to the circumstances at the time, this was the choice I made. I stand by my choice & I accept the consequences for it.

What I do not accept is untruth & false accusations.

This was not a PR Gag. My gal may have sauced me up enough to actually apply, but it was my own decision to follow through with it. Don’t be mistaken: I’m a grown man & fully capable of making my own choices. The only thing Roxy is “guilty” of is supporting me through this & knowing my weakness for good whisky. I’ve been in the subcultural world for long enough to know what casting shows represent but, if I don’t let mainstream culture dictate how I dress or act, why should I let subculture?In case there is any confusion as to why I was on tour with Mad Sin this last weekend, that was out of professionalism & respect for the fans.

It’s funny how a silly game can turn into such a big deal. This was never a search for stardom or a call for war. I’m just looking to make music, be myself & live life to the fullest. I have been performing solo for over a year already & have already started recording a new album to be released under my own name with a full band. That will be my primary focus from here on & will direct any spare time to performing & my various side-projects. I’m extremely excited for what lies around the next corner, can’t wait for the next adventure & this is NOT the last time you will hear of me!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all my supporters!
Thanks to everyone at the Voice of Germany for a fun new experience!
Prost to Mad Sin for 4 unforgetable years, I wish them nothing but the best!
It takes alot more than this to slow me down!
