BASTI ARTADI PARTS WAYS WITH LOKOMOTIV
Orange County, CA-- After a year and a half as vocalist of rising hard rock band LOKOMOTIV, Basti Artadi has parted ways with the band and is retiring from the music industry.
LOKOMOTIV released this announcement today: "We know this might come as shocking news but it was an amicable and inevitible farewell", says manager Ron Davis.
LOKOMOTIV reassures their fans that they and their management team are not breaking up. Exciting things are brewing behind the scenes and Lokoheads can look forward to great things to come. Meanwhile, guitarist David Aguirre, bassist Danny Gonzalez and drummer Wolf Gemora are concentrating on writing new material and are focused on keeping the momentum going.
"We want to assure YOU, our fans and friends that we will continue to be LOKOMOTIV and will move on with a strong frontman when the band is good and ready. We humbly ask for your continued support for our music and our cause.", says Wolf.

...on the availability of the album?
I've searched the record stores for this album the whole weekend and today (Monday), but I've yet to see this much awaited release from Lokomotiv (the only album they'll have with Basti on vocals). I've checked Tower ATC and Makati, and both Odysseys in ATC but they still don't have this in stock.
Someone from Wolfmusic was able to buy a copy today (Monday) at Odyssey XL in SM North; there were still about 7 copies left on the rack. Swell. My work is 5 minutes away from SM North, but mall hours = work hours, and when I do get off, SM North is out of my way home. Makati lang talaga madadaanan ko. Sana meron na bukas!!! Grrr...
