I have some sad news for all our Mithras fans; the ZT Xmas bash on the 14th of December will be my last show with Mithras as I am leaving the band. I realise this may come as somewhat sudden news, but I have found myself increasingly unable to commit as much time to Mithras as a) I could like and b) it really requires of me. The result is that I'm holding the band back and putting increasing pressure on Leon and his own busy lifestyle, which has never been something I wanted to do as a band member or as a friend. I find myself with increasing commitments and responsibilities in my life which at this point in time could do with my full attention. This isn't to say I'm just going to disappear into the void, I'm still a massive fan of the band and will support it in all its pursuits and I'll still be around on the board and myspace. I have had a fantastic time writing, recording and rehearsing all the albums and music that has been written so far, it's been a huge part of my life that I have really enjoyed and am very proud of all we've accomplished.
I urge everyone to get down to London and see Mithras on the 14th of December, it may be the last chance and is looking to be a great gig all round.
I would just like to thank all the fans and bands and 'zines that have supported Mithras thus far, its been an honour.

What a sad news !

Too bad I can't go to London (it's a bit far from my home !!!) in two weeks ! :(

As a Mithras fan, I'd like to thank you for what you've done and I wish you the best !

Best of luck in everything you do, Rayner. Looking forwards to seeing you in London.
Just remember, you can never truly leave the cult of Mithras, WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!

Rayner, thanks for being a part of Mithras and for making truly incredible music even better with your input. You will be missed and I hope we haven't seen the last of you - good luck with everything!

Well it just makes me even more glad I am making the epic journey to London for your last show.

Good luck for the future!

Nooooooooooo!!!!!

Just decided to wander into the forum, then find this. I'm truly shocked. It's bad enough when a member of a great band leaves but when it's Mithras it's a thousand times worse :(

As a member of Mithras you will be truly missed brother, and I wish you success and good fortune in whatever you do.
You made up a large part of the experience of my favourite band, and I do hope this doesn't mean the end for Mithras.

I feel crushed and winded at the same time - I don't even know if I can make it down to London this time :evil:

If this is your last gig Rayner, someone needs to record it (in audio and video).

Just a thought...

I agree.

It would be nice to have a good quality audio video recording of Mithras, since I never will be able to see it. :(

We're going to record the gig with two cameras. This might go on this mystical DVD I never get round to sorting out... I'll also make sure some of it gets online for everyone who can't make the show.
