It transpires that the delay of the release of “We Can't Fly” is down to internal conflicts between the duo. Last Thursday, on a “press release” via their Facebook Fan Page, Vito De Luca announced the split of Aeroplane as we know them. From now on, Aeroplane will become the sole outlet of De Luca. Stephen Fasano is leaving the venture to devote his energies to new projects. The shocking announcement comes just three months before the release of their debut album and it reads as follows:
“Hi everybody, It has been nearly 3 years since Stephen and I released our first 12" on Eskimo. Nearly 3 years since we've been doing remixes and touring the world as DJ's with some success. And for nearly three years we have been enjoying every second of it. Maybe you don't know this, but Stephen and I have been working together for more than 7 years now. 7 years of good and bad times. 7 years of creating different projects, exploring different directions. Today, we are more excited and passionate than ever about creating new music. Except that since the last months Stephen'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. Why me? Just because recently, I've been responsible for most of the music and the studio work. Aeroplane became more mine than his. There is no angriness here, no conflicts to come, just a mature decision to save what we've been building together and that both of us do not want to see disappear. Stephen is already working on new projects which you'll be aware off very soon. Let's wish Stephen all the luck in the world even though he doesn't need luck, because he has got talent. He will be back with amazing stuff, trust me, I know him very well. Vito.”
