Such terrible news for the Italian fans of Sleeping Romance. The Italian-base symphonic metal act has announced today that the singer Federica Lanna is no longer part of the band. The announced was previosly given by Federica herself through a video message that the Modenese singer has shared over her social medias.

A message for all of you my friends.
Without denying my past path, I feel that is time for me now to move on, so I confirm that I have left Sleeping Romance, due to important differences between us. It was a hard decison but taken with total awareness in order to regain calm and serenity as professionist and most of all as human being, so I could restore my self confidence and self esteem.
Some internal conflicts and big communication problems through all these years are now unbearable for me. I tried to fix things several times in the last months but without a positive response. I believe in the need of finding a middle ground and do not cross the line when you are in a team work which is also a kind of family and you have different point of views, temperaments, or feelings towards some matters; and I had to accept that some “dynamics” would have never changed.
I have recently learned the importance of giving voice to your opinion or anxiety will eat you alive. It’s important to find confidence in what you believe and to not keep everything bottle inside. On the same way I think that you have to find that safe place that makes you feel welcomed and taken into consideration the way you are.
As you may know my firm will was to keep on working with Sleeping Romance when I joined Volturian. Unfortunately even if I thought that this could have been positive for me, my improvement and for both the bands, I had to accept that this wasn’t the case.
Volturian have been crucial but in a positive way. I have met amazing people and musicians who treated me with extreme respect, consideration and empathy. I worked in an atmosphere of mutual support and joy that warmed my heart, giving me an energy that I haven’t felt for a long time.
Sometimes you need to be brave, leaving something behind to come back to life. Who knows me even knows how much I trusted Sleeping Romance, how much I put into it and I want to thank all the fans for the amazing support I received through the years. I wish Sleeping Romance the best of course; and I also wish that you will keep on supporting me cause this means the world for me.
Love u all guys. Yours truly, Federica
