Keyboarder Clive Noland äusserte sich wie folgt:
"We are sad to announce that singer Rob Sowden has decided to part ways with the band. The explanation given so many times at moments like this is 'musical differences', usually as a veil for somewhat darker reasons; but actually, in this case, it is precisely the reason. (...) We wish Rob good luck with all his future endeavours. In the meantime Arena WILL be performing their shows in November where they will be presenting their new vocalist, as well as material from their next album"
