Scott Young (guitar/guitar synth) has officially departed Alarum to concentrate on developing his solo career, and devote more time to gothic metal outfit Darkest Dawn.

Young joined Alarum in ’95, and over a ten year period has performed innumerable times with the band, including the Carving North America’s Epitaph tour with Necrophagist, Arsis, Cattle Decapitation and Neuraxis. He appears on both the landmark ‘Eventuality’ and formative ‘Fluid Motion’ albums, and helped Alarum take out the coveted ‘Best Band’ and ‘Best Album’ categories in the 2004 Australian Kerrang Awards.

In a recent interview, Young reflected on the decision to strike out on his own.

"It was an extremely difficult choice to make - these guys are like family to me, you know. But something simply had to give. I was stretching myself too thin, and I didn’t want to mess the guys around. I still believe in the band and their music, and wish them all the best. I’m very excited about pursuing my solo material, which I’ve had on the back burner for years - and in seeing what may come of Darkest Dawn."

Young performed his final gig with Alarum supporting Obituary at the Prince Of Wales, in Melbourne on May 17 2007, to great support from loyal fans.

Darkest Dawn are currently mastering their debut album ‘End Of Season’, recorded with Theron Rennison (of ‘Eventuality’ notoriety); slated for an August release, ‘End Of Season’ will be distributed in Australia by Riot, and is currently being shopped to overseas labels.
