The Angels singer Dave Gleeson leaves legendary Aussie rock band ahead of upcoming shows in Melbourne: ‘It’s time to move on’
Dave Gleeson will do his last performances with The Angels in June, the singer has announced.
Gleeson, who joined the band as a frontman in 2011, said he’s stepping aside to focus on his radio commitments and his new album with The Screaming Jets.
That says the presenter of Triple M Nights with Dave Gleeson in a statement The courier mail this week: “Being part of such a legendary legacy will always be one of my great achievements.
“With The Screaming Jets on the cusp of a new album, and my national Triple M commitments, it’s time to move on,” he continued.
Dave said his bandmates John Brewster, Rick Brewster, Sam Brewster and Nick Norton remain “the very best of friends.”

John, Rick, Sam and Nick will always hold a special place in my rock and roll journey. Fuck off and see you on the road,” he said.
In his own statement, Rick said the group is “so grateful to Dave for everything he’s done for the band”.
The Angels will hold their final two shows with Gleeson in Melbourne in June.
The hell-raising band is the subject of a new tell-all documentary, The Angels: Kickin’ Down the Door.
It traces the band’s early days when they only made $100 for five-hour performances.
