Huge Tourniquet News!

Post by bjorn agin on Thu Dec 31, 2015 1:39 pm

Luke has left the band and a new album is coming in 2016.

Ted wrote:Hey everyone. Just a quick update on the present and future of Tourniquet. First, Tourniquet is not going away. I have more than a lifetime of music to give, and God willing, I plan to share it with whoever would like to hear it, just as I always have – under the name Tourniquet.
The classical influence, the medical terminology, the allegories to nature, the beautiful and the ugly sounds, the fast and the slow, the ordinary and the unexpected, the triumphs and challenges to faith and hope – all these things you the fans have indicated you like about our music – will continue - and continue in new ways.
The new material is very heavy (and sometimes beautiful), and full of melody and twists. Vocals will be with a new singer – not a collection of vocalists (although I love doing that, as you know by now – wait ‘til you hear the guys on the Sabbath tunes!)
So – thank you all for hanging in there – onward to 2016 and beyond – and a very Happy New Year to you all! - Ted



An update earlier about Luke's departure:

Tourniquet announcement: By mutual and respectful agreement, Luke Easter has stepped down as vocalist of Tourniquet. Ted says: “Luke has been a valuable member of Tourniquet since 1993 and we have shared much music, ministry, and laughter. I will always appreciate his valuable contribution to our music and his representation of the band – and I know many of you will too. We’ve decided that our musical paths are not quite going in the same direction. Luke has been, and is - a great friend. I truly wish the best for him and look forward to seeing whatever his future holds.”
From Luke: In June, 1993, my life changed. I joined Tourniquet and began a musical journey that has lasted more than two decades. I got the opportunity to see the world; to meet and work with amazing people; to contribute to a body of work that I am proud of; and in the process I was able to share Christ with people all over the world. I am grateful to have been a part of Tourniquet, and to have had the chance to work with someone as talented and prolific as Ted for as long as I have.


I know we've all had our opinions here about the band, their vocalists, their stance on animal abuse etc. etc. All that aside, I'm VERY curious to see who they choose to pick up the microphone and handle vocals. I'm hoping they pick someone who blows our socks off.  I also hope the music is better. To me Antiseptic was pretty meh.. and I haven't been able to listen to it more than a couple times.
