Founding member leaves CONTROL THE STORM.

Gitarist og grunnlegger Richard Shillitoe forlater Control The Storm for å fokusere på livet utenom musikken.

After 9 years of service with Control the Storm, lead guitarist and founding member, Richard Shillitoe, has taken the decision to hang up his axe and leave Control the Storm to focus on his life outside of the band.

Richard Shillitoe dannet Control The Storm sammen med keyboardist Raedon Mac i 2010, og bandet har til dags dato gitt ut to studioalbum; Beast Inside (2015) og Forevermore (2019). Shillitoe får av resten av bandmedlemmene mye av æren for bandets utvikling og musikalske retning.

Rich not only formed the band alongside Rae, but has been a huge influence on the bands direction and sound, having released Beast Inside and Forevermore, appearing on the New Blood stage and Sophie Lancaster stage at Bloodstock Open air 2012 and 2019 respectively.

Til tross for Shillitoes avgang er Control The Storm fast bestemt på å fortsette videre og bandet er allerede i gang med å finne ny gitarist.

Despite this, spirits remain high in the band and we have been working very hard getting something special ready for you all to enjoy.

We will be putting out an advert in the new year for a new guitarist – feel free to tag anyone who may be interested in working with us.
