    Peter Gander, Steve Papacharitos and Mitch Koontz leave GODIVA!


    Peter Gander, Steve Papacharitos and Mitch Koontz leave "GODIVA"!

    Because of musical, personal and management decisioning differences, the main founders Peter Gander (Drums), Mitch Koontz (Bass), as well as Steve Papacharitos (Lead guitar) have announced their immediate departure from "Godiva".

    “We really regret having to give up this band after all these intensive years, and we want to thank all our fans and all the people who have supported us. If our music will carry on and in which direction - is uncertain at the moment: time will tell.”

    Metal forever!

    Peter, Steve und Mitch
