Australian group will continue without bass player and are recording third album

Cloud Control member Jeremy Kelshaw has quit the band.

Bass player Kelshaw announced his departure on the band’s Facebook page, explaining that he was “returning to civilian life” and confirmed that the band will continue without him.

“Dear music lovers. After 10 years of blissfully rocking out & playing bass all over the world, I’ve decided to step out of cloud control & return to civilian life,” he wrote. “I’m so proud of what we’ve accomplished & it’s not been easy arriving at this point, but that’s ok.”

“I love my band & I love our fans. To Heidi, Al & Ulrich: thanks for creating this dream with me, you guys are the best. To everyone who has worked with us, played with us, come to a show or listened to our music: you guys are second best & I love you all. CC album #3 is being worked on, never fear, but these Falls & Southbound shows are my last.”

Cloud Control’s new album will be their third. It will follow the 2010 debut ‘Bliss Release’ album and 2013’s ‘Dream Cave’.
