hijhi, und ich war schon ganz traurig, dass sie sich schon so lange nicht mehrt getrennt hatten... The following is the official statement about Jacques`s departure. To all Exciter Fans and Supporters, For the the 3rd time in 10 years, Jacques Belanger has quit Exciter. Due to "differences of opinion' on many issues between Jacques and the rest of the band, he felt he could no longer continue as vocalist for Exciter. We are currently exploring our options but, we have, regretably, had to cancel shows in Europe, the USA and Canada that we had scheduled or been working on for this summer. The writing for the new CD is complete and we have 10 new songs to record, but we`ll have to find the voice to sing on these ripping new tracks first. Exciter would like to thank all the die-hard fans, throughout the globe, who have supported us for many years. The Exciter legacy will continue !
