Rising British five piece lose a member as Ryan Mellor leaves the Deaf Havana fold.
Deaf Havana have announced that vocalist Ryan Mellor has left the band:
"This isn't easy for any of us but sometimes life throws curveballs at you which you have deal with as and when they come," the group posted in a recent blog. "As most of you know Ryan couldn't do the Emery tour due to some family circumstances, unfortunately these have escalated and he is no longer in a position to carry on with the band. Obviously, we cannot disclose the information or reasons behind this, but we can tell you now it hasn't been easy.
We are starting work as a four piece and will continue to play all the songs you know from us as well as songs for the new record which we have already started working on. The past five years have been amazing and we have been lucky to tour all over the UK and Europe with Ryan as a friend and singer. We will miss him dearly but have to support him in this situation. Hopefully he'll send us something through to send to you guys soon."
