Manuela thanks all fans and Xandria in a personal statement: "After three years with the boys in Xandria, I decided to follow a different path and go my own musical way." The sympathethic Bavarian singer leaves with regret but also full of gratitude, thanking band and fans for the time they had together and being grateful for the "wonderful moments in mutual tours and shows". Manuela is "wishing Dianne and band all the very best for the future!".

The Dutch / German quintet just hit the studio recording the band's sixth studio album, the successor to critically acclaimed symphonic metal jewel "Neverworld's End". The record in progress will already feature Dianne van Giersbergen's evoice and talent.
