In a shocking turn, disco maestros Aeroplane have ejected one of their co-pilots. According to a posting on their Facebook page, Aeroplane will continue as a solo act, helmed by Vito DeLuca: “Since the last months, Stephen [Fasano]’s vision and mine were going different ways. That is the reason why we decided that one of us should leave Aeroplane. Not to destroy it, but to make it last. Discussions were intense, and emotional, but Stephen is leaving me in charge of our baby. I will be, from now on, the one and only member of Aeroplane.”
DeLuca goes on to explain that despite working with Fasano for nearly three years as Aeroplane and for over seven years in total, he recently became responsible for more of the music production. He stresses that they parted ways amicably, and that Fasano will soon bring to light some of his own music projects.
This news comes following a successful U.S. tour that ended last week and a few months before their debut album is due to drop. No word yet on whether the release will be affected.
