Argentina’s Bad Dreams make their return to Cruise to the Edge, only this time with a change at lead singer.  Former singer Gabriel Agudo surprised everyone when he announced he was leaving the band to pursue a solo career.  Bad Dreams, meanwhile, are set to release their next album Chrysalis this December.

The band released this message on their FB page:

“Yesterday was a very sad day for us, a day we will certainly won’t easily forget. But yesterday belongs to the past, and as much as we would like to change it, it is beyond our human ability.

Today we look at the future, convinced that there’s no other way but to move forward. We wholeheartedly thank Gabriel Agudo for his undeniable contributions to Bad Dreams. He will be sorely missed, but Bad Dreams must and will continue the journey we embarked upon more than 30 years ago.

We are deeply moved by the outpouring of love we have received after the news of Gabriel’s departure and we wanted to take a minute and thank each and everyone of you for your kind words and best wishes.

Our new record Chrysalis is completed and will enter the mastering stage this week. Our PledgeMusic campaign reached more than its 100% and each and everyone who pledged will receive their perks. And as for our next February presentation at Cruise to the Edge, we are actively doing the best we can to find a temporary replacement to fulfill our promise and debut Chrysalis live for each of you aboard The Brilliance of the Seas. We will publish another update as soon as we have more concise news for you.

From the bottom of our hearts, thanks for all your support. It means the world to us.”

Jorge, Fernando, Alex and Ariel.
