Lola Amour’s Raymond King announces his exit from the band after 8 years


Samo’t sari ang naging reaksyon ng mga fans matapos i-announce ng bassist ng Lola Amour na si Raymond King ang kanyang pag-exit sa kanilang banda matapos ang eight years.

Sa isang social media post, nag-release ng statement si Ray patungkol sa kanyang pag-alis sa nasabing banda.

“Hey! This is Ray. There’s no easy way to say this, so here goes. I’ve made the decision to leave Lola Amour. The band was just a hobby when we were starting out. So, we’ve always had other long-term plans for ourselves. And while I’m proud of everything we’ve achieved, my plans stayed the same. Sadly, the band isn’t part of it,” saad ni Ray sa kanyang statement.

“After 8 years of giving everything I could, I’ve realized that success, fulfillment, and happiness are different things. Now, I choose to be happy. Despite my decision, I’m very grateful for both my time in the band and the whole Lola Amour team. We’ve reached more than I could have ever dreamed of and I couldn’t think of anyone else I would have done it with,” dagdag pa nito. 

Kasabay nito, nagpahayag naman ng kanilang words of gratitude ang Lola Amour at ilang mga fans para kay Ray. 

“Thank you for the last 8 years, buddy! You are a huuuuge reason why we are here where we are today. You know we’re not a cheesy bunch, but saying that ‘we’ll miss you’ is an understatement. Alam mo na yan,” mensahe ng Lola Amour sa kanilang post sa social media platform na X.

“Thank you, Raymond. Really. Every time that I saw you perform always felt like a first time. Thank you for the passion and thank you for sharing your music to us,” pasasalamat ng isang fan.

“We love you and we’ll definitely miss you! Always rooting for you,” dagdag pa ng isa. 

Base sa kanilang anunsyo, nakatakdang isagawa ang last gig ni Ray bilang Lola Amour bassist sa kanilang Album Concert na gaganapin sa April 13, sa Circuit Makati Concert Grounds. 

Kasabay nito, sinabi rin ng Lola Amour na mananatiling parte si Ray sa kanilang upcoming album. 

“Might be comforting for you guys to know that Ray is still part of the upcoming album +  some unreleased tracks after the album,” wika nila sa kanilang post. 

Kilala ang nasabing OPM band sa kanilang mga hit songs na “Raining in Manila,” “Fallen,” “Pwede Ba,” at iba pa.
