As that happens often, than, the news we have from Bonfire team, can not be surprising at all. Unfortunately, Tim Breideband, who has been part of German Heavy Metal band since 2015, decided to leave the band. Tim recorded four albums with Bofire: “Pearls”, “Byte the Bullet”, “Temple of Lies” and “Legends”.
As it is officially announced, he will be replaced with André Hilgers, also known for his cooperation with Herman Frank, Silent Force, Axxis, Lingua Mortis Orchestra and many others.
Here is an official Bonfire statement:
After 3 years and 4 albums Bonfire and Tim Breideband will be parting ways and Tim will be pursuing new opportunities. Tim is an excellent drummer and was a great addition to Bonfire. We are sure he will be great in his future endeavors and we wish him the very best. Bonfire would like to announce our new drummer André Hilgers. André is an excellent and very accomplished drummer, formerly with Rage, Silent Force, Axxis and Sinner. We would like to welcome André to the Bonfire family and we are looking forward to what this new relationship will bring for Bonfire. You can see André perform with Bonfire for the first time 01.03.2019 in Memmingen at Kamminwerk.
