Veteran German hard rockers KINGDOM COME have parted ways with rhythm guitarist Yenz Leonhardt. According to a posting on the band's web site, "Yenz took on too many jobs which require his time and are in constant conflict with KINGDOM COME's schedule. Therefore, KINGDOM COME decided to part from Yenz, but wishes him all the best in the future. During the [current] European tour [with DOKKEN], [frontman/leader] Lenny [Wolf] is playing the guitar himself."
KINGDOM COME's "Defenders of Rock" European tour with DOKKEN is scheduled to run through October 21, with the final concert taking place in Stockholm, Sweden at the Debaser.

KINGDOM COME's latest studio album, "Ain't Crying for the Moon", was released in Europe on October 20, 2006 via Frontiers Records.
"After having done a lot of experimenting with 'Perpetual' , I thought it was the time to take out the axe again and rock the house," Lenny Wolf, the mastermind behind KINGDOM COME, said at the time. "The new CD [is] one of my heaviest recordings ever. I was trying to build 'walls of guitars' in combination with that typical KC moody and spacey approach. It does not have the typical 'blues' factor anymore, which many of you may remember from the first records. I have transported my roots into the year 2006."
