Elimination, prior to their performance at this year's Bloodstock Open air have announced some major changes in their ranks.

Early on in 2023 Elimination announced a change in their ranks with their guitarist Leigh deciding to leave Elimination due to personal reasons. He was instrumental in the resurgence of Elimination, and the band have said "We will miss him greatly. We’re still great friends but he has decided that being in a band isn’t where he sees his future."

Skip forward a few months and the band have now announced that original singer Neil Stevens has also said goodbye to Elimination. The founding member of Elimination has been instrumental in the bands inception and growth over the twenty years of existence. Neil has now decided to focus on a change in direction and will be focusing on his boxing career.

- A statement from Neil -

"Hi Maniacs, After much soul searching, I have come to the hard decision to step down from Elimination. This band has been a huge part of my life for almost 20 years and, even though it has been one of the hardest decisions of my life, I feel the time is right to focus other passions in my life. I want to say a massive thank you to everyone who supported the band since we formed in 2007 and it’s been a privilege to perform to everyone who has attended our shows over the years. Elimination will always have a big place in my heart, and I know I am leaving it in great hands. Please give David, Gus, Marcus, and Neil Miller as much support in this new incarnation of Elimination as you would if I was still a part of it. They all have my full blessing and I look forward to seeing where they now take it."

The band have said "Although we will be sad to see Neil and Leigh go there is some much more fun news!" Moving forward Elimination will be front by David Hill, who will be handling the vocal duties. The first single that David will be debuting vocals on will be titled ‘Rebirth Of A Greater God’ and will be recorded over the summer with longtime producer Jack Helliwell (DC studios) and will be released Autumn 2023.

Aside from this Elimination have also added Marcus Norman (ex- Arms To Oblivion) and Neil Millar-Robinson (Draugrheim) into Elimination who will be undertaking bass and guitar duties. ‘Rebirth Of A Greater God’ will be the first material with which will showcase the new line up.
