Rayna Foss-Rose has decided to leave Coal Chamber to dedicate her time to her daughter, Kayla (fathered by Morgan Rose of Sevendust). Rayna has been with the band since its inception in 1994. She left the band briefly in 1999 to give birth and quickly rejoined the band on the road in early, 2000. Just this past winter she completed working with the band on their 3rd recording effort, DARK DAYS. Her departure was a difficult decision to make as she states, "I've decided to leave Coal Chamber so that I can raise our daughter, Kayla, full time. This was a hard decision to make, but is one that Morgan and I feel is important to our lives and our family. I wish nothing but the best for the band, and will always love and cherish the time we had together". Dez, Mikey and Meegs follow sentiment - "Rayna has given us the best years of her life. We appreciate all of her hard work and effort and we wish her and her family the best. We as a band support this decision. Family comes first. We will miss her greatly". Nadja Puelen has been announced as the touring bass player for Coal Chamber. Nadja is no stranger to touring with Coal Chamber, she filled in for Rayna when Rayna gave birth to Kayla back in 1999. Currently the band is putting the finishing touches on their highly anticipated third album, DARK DAYS, to be released in spring 2002. Onward and upward...
