Chris Cranium: New bassist found!

When the circus left town, they left one of them behind. The clown that had been known to disappear for days followed by unsolved murders in the area. Instead of circus arenas, Chris Cranium can now be seen on stages around the world with THE OTHER.

Chris Cranium is the successor of bassist Aaron Torn who had been in the band for a good 2 years, recored the praised "Fear Itself" album with THE OTHER and toured with Europe's No. 1 Horror Punk band through Germany, the United Kingdom and the USA.

THE OTHER's upcoming shows with new member Chris Cranium will be:

July 17th - Köln - Essigfabrik (with IGNITE)
Aug 4th - WACKEN - Wacken Open Air (with Iron Maiden etc.)
Aug 19th - Dinkelbühl - Summer Breeze Open Air (with Steel Panther, Parkway Drive etc.)
Aug 27th - Siegburg - Kubana
Sept. 7h - Lünen - Wreck n Roll Festival
Oct. 30th - Frankfurt - Das Bett (with Bloodsucking Zombies)
Oct. 31st - Köln - Underground (with Bloodsucking Zombies)

Aaron Torn leaves THE OTHER

A statement from THE OTHER about Aaron Torn's departure:

"After only two years we have to say goodbye to bassist Aaron Torn. Aaron decided to leave The Other to pursue different musical projects. We are very sad to announce the passing of yet another bandmember and a good friend and musician. We would have wanted things to be different and finally have a stable line-up again. We have never thrown anybody out of the band, we are friends with all ex-members of The Other, they come to our shows or to rehearsals, they play songs live with us (like Andy Only recently), they sing backings in the studio and we meet and drink together.

The good news is that we have always returned stronger after a line-up change and we are sure that this will be the case again.
If it weren’t for all of you out there who support the band and follow us through the hard times, we would not be here any more. So bear with us, believe in us and give us the chance to keep The Other going. A big thank you to all you supporters/listeners/fans out there. And a big thank you to Aaron for two awesome years and the great tours of Germany, UK and the USA, some big festivals and our best album „Fear Itself“ together. Good luck on your way."
