In sad news, bassist Matt has decided to leave Aonia due to the financial concerns that come with being a PhD student. He will play the shows the band has committed to and will continue to fill in as a session musician for the foreseeable future until a replacement can be found. We are grateful to Matt and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours! In the meantime, we are looking for a bassist who is flexible, committed, who is able and willing to pay a fair share of band expenses, and who has his/her own equipment (and preferably transport). If you’re interested, please contact aonia @ hotmail . co . uk and delete the spaces – we hope to hear from you soon!
