I’m leaving VUUR

With pain in my heart I regret to inform you that I have decided to leave VUUR. The past few months I’ve been working with Anneke the rest of the guys on what will be the band’s debut album, but it wasn’t until last week when we started the vocal recordings that Anneke and I realised that we both wanted to take very different directions when it came to the sound and approach of the vocals.

We looked for a way to make it work, a possible compromise perhaps; but the thought that one of us wouldn’t be entirely happy with the end result was unbearable. We’re afraid that we will regret this in the future and that it somehow will hurt our friendship; we respect each other too much to let that happen.

I’m truly devastated, because I’m a huge fan of Anneke and every single member of the band; they’re all incredibly sweet people, as well as top notch musicians. Plus, the songs are so fantastic… this is going to be a revolutionary album! But I have to follow my heart and choose for what I think in the future will bring me (and the rest of the band) happiness, no matter how hard it feels right now.
Anneke, Fer, Jord, Johan and Ed: you guys are THE BEST. I’d wish you luck but you don’t need it, you are going to ROCK this world ❤

  1. Me da tristeza, pero la verdad yo te veía fuera de lugar en VUUR . Con tus logros desde Elfonía y SOP hasta Unprecented, y tu cada vez más alto nivel de composición y vocalista, ya no estás para ser segunda en ninguna banda – no puedes ser mas que la líder. Y te apoyaremos siempre en cada paso y decisión que tomes. <3 ….por cierto, después de escribir ésto, le comenté a Lupita y me dijo, "era OBVIO…..ella no está ya para ser segunda de nadie…más bien, era BOVIO…." 😉
    ¡¡ Ánimo !!

  2. But we(the fans) still loves you Marcela and I know you will make good music in the future.

  3. A sad but brave decision.
    As you say, difficult though it is, a little sadness now is better than regret in the future.
    This way the door will be open in the future.

  4. Wel jammer dat ik je niet in Leeuwarden kan zien bij de Neushoorn, maar je hebt wel een dapper en wijs besluit genomen. Hopelijk komen we elkaar nog eens tegen tijdens een van jouw eigen shows.

  5. Jammer, jullie hadden een mooi project met elkaar. Ongetwijfeld een moeilijke beslissing. Sterkte en hopelijk tot ziens on Stage met een nieuwe band!
