Three-Fourths of The HAARP Machine Available for White Lion Reunion

Heavy Blog is Heavy’s headline, “Everyone Who Isn’t Al Mu’min Quits The HAARP Machine,” pretty much says it all: vocalist Mike Semesky, drummer Alex Rudinger, and bassist Ollie Rooney have all quit the band. And, as you might guess when everyone but a single member quits a band, it’s because no one was vibing with that one remaining member.

Says Semesky in a statement:

“Due to irreconcilable personal differences with our guitarist Al Mu’min, the three of us (Alex, Ollie, and I) have decided to part ways with The|HAARP|Machine  This was in no way an easy decision to make but the three of us feel that it is in our best interest to pursue other musical endeavors at this time. We would like to thank all of our fans, our friends and families, Sumerian Records, and everyone else who supported our band along the way. Rest assured that the three of us are in no way giving up on our music careers and we’d encourage you all to follow our individual YouTube channels to keep up with our tunes while we are in pursuit of our new musical homes.

“Take care and thank you for reading,

“Mike, Alex, and Ollie

I assume this means that Rudinger is indeed the new drummer for The Faceless, but we still don’t have any official confirmation on that. The big question now, of course, is whether or not Mu’min will continue the band will all new players. I pretty much assume he will, because that’s how it goes these days. But who knows, maybe he’ll start a new band or enroll in dental school or whatever.
