Saxon Davids (lead guitar) and Stephen Ellis (bass) have today announced their departure from the band, following Chris MacKinnon’s (drums) departure last month, effectively ending the bands A Crisis of Faith line-up.
“Leaving Kaine isn’t a decision I’ve taken lightly but I feel I’m at a point in my life now where I need to take a break from the heavy and active lifestyle of gigging to focus on my own life and career outside of being in a band. I wish my old band mates nothing but success and want to thank them all for the amazing experiences these past 4 years have given me.” – Saxon Davids
Following Saxon’s decision to leave the band, Rage offered Stephen the chance to leave the band at this point also which he accepted.
“I didn’t want to have to leave Kaine, but following Chris’s and now Saxon’s departures I feel it’s best at this point to also move on to allow the band to start putting together a new line-up for 2018. I will be making my own statement at a later point” – Stephen Ellis
Both Saxon Davids and Stephen Ellis will remain with the band in a live capacity until replacements can be found. The remaining members of Kaine will make an announcement tomorrow.
