Ravenscry has announced that founding guitarist Paul Raimondi is no longer able to play live with the band due to personal commitments. He will still take part in the band as both a writer and producer.
To take Raimondi's place, 26-year-old guitarist Federico Schiavoni, who has already appeared with the band live, will assume full-time guitar duties. Federico commented, "I'm very happy to be part of the Ravenscry family: I found great people, as well as great musicians, to share the stage and moments outside the studio with. I already played live with them and the harmony was immediate. It was easy; the boys immediately put me in ease and in the ideal conditions to work. I can't wait to start working with them full time and to give my best in this new adventure."
The band also wanted to express their feelings about the change through the following comment from singer Giulia Stefani; "Paul's decision, although we expected it from a while, has hit us deeply, though clearly we understand his reasons. On the other hand, Federico's entry into the band is a relief and brings renewed enthusiasm: he is an enterprising person and a capable guitar player. We are very happy to have it with us!"
