Hamerex Parts Ways With Bass Player Simon Brooks

Hamerex has checked in with the following announcement about parting ways with bassist Simon Brooks:

“Though he’s only been with us a short while, we regret to inform you all that Simon has decided to leave the band. It’s very disappointing for all of us as we were all working well together and having a good time writing the new album.

“His decision to leave wasn’t an easy one, but due to pressures with work and things in his personal life make it harder for him to commit to the band as much as he’d like to. We’re all on good terms and we all wish each other the best of luck for the future.

“Me, Andy and Daz will continue to work on writing the third album, and if anyone’s interested in trying out as the bassist, then please don’t hesitate to send us a message. In the meantime, check out ‘Desert Skies’ below from Simon’s only gig with us back in March.”

Hamerex recently released new EP “The Last Ride” (available for streaming over here), and is now working on a new full-length release.
