Heights fire vocalist Thomas Debaere, announcement coming this Friday

Thomas Debaere is now the former vocalist of Heights after he confirms that he was kicked out of the band.

Heights released a statement on their website which read as if they had fired Thomas but whether he had been fired or left for his own reasons had not been confirmed until Thomas posted on his Twitter account. The statement from the band reads:

As some of you may have read or heard today we parted ways with our vocalist and good friend Thomas Debaere.

We understand a lot of you will panic, and a lot of you will be upset – but if you have backed Heights and are a fan of this band, then you have backed the decisions we’ve made up until now and this time should be no different.

We have absolutely no doubts about our reasons behind this, check back at the end of this week for more news.

No shows or tours will be affected – come see us at Crash Doubt, the Kerrang! Awards Show and Ghostfest for our first shows with our new vocalist

Forwards ever, backwards never.

Update: The band have posted an update on Facebook in the comments section regarding the above statement.

We’re not going to spend our time replying to everyone on here, some of you get it – some of you don’t.

To be clear, we “parted ways” with Thom by “kicking him out”.. Whatever words you use, the situation is the same.

To those with an open mind, check back Friday to hear what we have coming.

Thomas confirmed the news in a series of Twitter posts, all of which can be read below.
