Founding SALIVA guitarist Wayne Swinny died three months ago while on the road with the band. On March 22, SALIVA shared a statement on Facebook which said: “Since the devastating loss of our brother Wayne, we have had many difficult discussions regarding the future of the band.
“We had recently completed an album that was three years in the making, but when tragedy struck, we paused all plans and focused our energy on supporting one another and Wayne‘s loved ones through this troubling time. As we grieved, we also took time to reflect on the joy of countless memories together on the road, travelling, making music and performing.
“Wayne truly loved being onstage and he loved his fans. We also thought about all the creativity, talent, and passion that Wayne put into what would ultimately and unfortunately end up being his last album. Onstage and off, Wayne was a powerful presence in as our lives, so the decision on whether to carry on as a band is a difficult one.
“What is the best way to honor a legendary talent like Wayne?
“After careful consideration, and with the support of his family, we have made the decision to pay tribute to his legacy the best way we know how, through our music. We intend to move forward with the release of our album so everyone can hear the new songs that Wayne put his heart and soul into. We will also continue with the summer tour plans, honoring his memory every time we perform with a portion of the proceeds from each show gifted to his daughter Nikki.
“The entire music community has lost a remarkable talent, and Wayne‘s impact on the music industry will continue to be felt for years to come.
“We miss Wayne beyond measure, but we know that he would want us to keep making music and sharing it with our fans, and to keep his spirit alive through our performances.
“We are grateful for the love and support from Wayne‘s family, fans, and friends.
“Rest in peace, Wayne. You will be missed, but your music will live on forever.”
SALIVA was on the road as part of the “Spring Mayhem” tour along with THROUGH FIRE and ANY GIVEN SIN when Wayne passed.
