Hacktivist earlier this week announced that their current guitarist and founding member of the band, Timfy, is departing from the band. It’s unsure why Timfy has left the band but all that is certain is that there is no bad blood between Timfy and the other members. Hacktivist will be playing a few final shows in Switzerland, Camden Rocks Festival and a final home town show to say goodbye their friend.
Even with Timfy gone Hacktivist will continue to play on all current shows and will continue forward as a band so fans are not to worry! See the post Hacktivist uploaded a few days ago below for more details:
It is with heavy hearts that we announce that Timfy will be leaving Hacktivist. Timfy will play 3 final shows in Switzerland, Camden Rocks Festival and a very special hometown show which goes onsale tomorrow at 10am.
All shows beyond this point will still go ahead and we will announce details on our new guitarist in the near future.
Timfy: “I’m very sad to say that I have made the decision to leave Hacktivist. I’ve had an amazing six years touring the world with my brothers and I wish them all the luck moving forward. I also want to thank all of the fans that have supported us this far, without you guys none of this would have been possible. I have every confidence that the band will continue to inspire and push the boundaries of modern music for many more years to come.”
Josh: “We’re sad to see Timfy’s time with Hacktivist has come to an end, but we wish the best of luck with his future plans. We want to thank him profusely for the blood, sweat and tears he has put into the band over the past seven years. Timfy has been a driving force in defining the Hacktivist sound, but his departure brings with it the dawn of new ideas and forward thinking. None of this year’s shows will be cancelled, and you will be hearing from us soon with fresh new music.”
As far as we’re aware Timfy will continue to work at Old Skool Studios where he works with other artists, recording and mixing them – also as a place to hone his skills as a guitarist! Check out one of his latest works below, a cover of Post Malone’s ‘Congratulations’
