Tony Mills departs TNT

Well, I don't pop in very often, but I guess today is an appropriate one.
I came to a point recently after eighteen months touring the last TNT album, where so many ideas and aspirations came to a head, that it was just plain difficult to remain in TNT any further. I kinda lost focus running around the festival circuit, as the set hadn't changed for such a long time.
But 'hope springs eternal', as Blackadder amongst others would say, and with the birth of new material and fresh relationships, it's nice to blow out some old air and breathe in some new.
I'm currently working on two different albums; one AOR set for an obligation to the Japanese market that I have outstanding, with the likes of Robert Sall, Vic Rivera, Tommy Denander,(If I can manage to tie him down again-he was just a sweetheart and a professional to help me out on the single)Simon Harrison, Pete Newdeck(when I can manage to stop laughing)Steve Newman, Andreas Nergard, Neil Hibbs, Sid Ringsby and hopefully David Bryan. Co-writes with such talented individuals is always a different experience every day with fresh lessons to learn.
The songs are varied and range from out and out rockers to the more tech end of electro ballad. But it will balance somewhere out in the middle, I feel sure.
The heavier project, which I am always with the best intentions of producing a third and final SIAM album, will probably just end up coming out through a Sydney based production company as a solo project, I dont know yet; it's never easy to get old band mates to commit, when their lives have moved on and their desires in life don't match yours any longer, but we'll see. Neil Hibbs and Oyvind Waernes from Trondheim are currently helping me steer that machine along with Andreas Nergard.
High hopes all, with best intentions and fingers crossed for great results.
I have become firm friends with Tony Harnell over the years and whatever decision he takes, I hope he lands happy and firm in what he wants to do with or without TNT, he's a great songwriter and performer and deserves a just return for all his hard work and I know what he has gone through.
TNT is a Kronos that will march on, with a massive fanbase in Scandinavia and I will enjoy watching it, as I have done singing for it, for the last seven years. It only leaves me to thank all the fans in Norway for their fantastic hospitality, friendship and kindness over the years and to perform two more shows at the end of the week to wish them farewell. Great times.
