En algo que pensé que pasaría, pero deseaba que no acabara así, Arjen deja SoP para dedicarse de tiempo completo con el nuevo disco Ayreon. Eh aquí un fragmento de una entrevista en su website:

Q: What are your plans concerning STREAM OF PASSION at this moment?

Arjen: Because I will be fully concentrating on the new AYREON for at least the next year, I have no more time for STREAM OF PASSION, so I quit the band. It would be unfair to have them wait until I’m ready, especially now things are going so well for STREAM OF PASSION.

Q: Does this mean the end of STREAM OF PASSION?

Arjen: Fortunately not, the band will continue without me. They will write their own songs and I’m sure there’s enough talent in the band to make a great new album and undertake successful tours without me pulling the strings.

Bueno, dice que ‘se va’ para no demorarlos… No hay prisa! en serio, no la hay. Espero y el resto de SoP tampoco tenga prisa…

Por otro lado y como ‘buenas noticias’, Arjen continuara con Ayreon. No puedo esperar menos de el :)
