British thrash metal veterans Onslaught have just announced the departure of their singer, Sy Keeler

The band stated: "Due to the nature of the modern-day music industry, some things simply aren't sustainable year after year and Sy has now taken a different full-time career path. We would like to wish Sy and his family all the very best on this new journey through life and give him huge thanks for his immense vocal performances in the band over the years. We've shared so many great experiences, made some very cool records and played some really amazing shows across the globe. Unfortunately, nothing lasts forever, and for us as a band, what doesn't kill us will once again make us stronger".

The band's label AFM Records posted the following on Facebook: "Onslaught just released this news that Sy Keeler leaves the band. We from AFM Records wish Sy all the very best for his future and new journey! And at the same time we are very excited about what awaits us from Onslaught in the future and we are sure they will get back stronger from the current situation and never give up. We are behind the band as ever! 

Onslaught is curently working on its next album.
