Sad news in Wicked Asylum camp! Guitarist Federica “Fade” Mapelli has announced her abandonment from the band.

Here’s what the band has officially stated:

Today we have a very important announcement to make.
From now on, our Fade will venture into other wonderful challenges, but without us.

There is so much emotion, it is pointless to pretend, but the love that we have for each other has helped us to overcome even this with no regrets; although she will no longer be part of the line-up, she will always be a part of Wicked Asylum in spirit!

Here is the message she wrote for us, and for you:

“My journey with Wicked Asylum ends here.

No sadness, but a lot of gratitude for giving me the opportunity to grow both as a musician and as a guitar player.

I decided to undertake a more personal path aiming to grow, improve myself and confront those which are my “walls” as a guitarist.

A solo chapter begins for me, a tortuous journey in search of that sound that represents me the most, capable of moving you even more!

Thanks for everything.
I will treasure all the precious memories of these years spent together.
I wish you all the best!

With all my love,

Wicked Asylum
