Former Sybreed Members Working On New Project

Though Sybreed wound up calling it quits after the departure of their vocalist last year, a few unspecified members of the group plan to continue on with a new venture. Earlier this month the band announced the following via their Facebook:

“Some months ago we announced that Sybreed would stop their activities and we are incredibly touched that this fan base kept on growing. We love you from the bottom of our hearts!!

We take this opportunity to announce that some of Sybreed members are gathered around a brand new project. We already have the band name and the whole concept, but we want to keep it secret for the time being. We will reveal some more this fall, on this page.

We know we ain’t saying much, but let us assure you the Sybreed fans will be quite happy with the new band.

Looking forward to see you again on the road.”
