Swedish Dark Rockers Tribulation finally announce their new sticksman, after Jakob Ljungberg has officially left the band earlier this year. The following statements have been posted on their facebook page:
As the summer in the year of their lord 2017 draws near and the world in the north is again fully starting to wake from its slumber we, on the other hand, are forced to face an inevitable end in the departure of our drummer Jakob Ljungberg who has decided to leave the band. We have spent the last five years together through pain to heaven, in chaos to bliss! It’s been such a strange, wonderful, tiring and inspiring time and we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making this time the most important in the history of the band. We surely couldn’t have done it without you. We were like brothers even before the time of Tribulation and we certainly will be in the time after! Make sure to check out Jakob’s unique and most excellent band Second Sun where he sings and plays guitar!
”It is with a heavy heart that I leave Tribulation. These last years have been among the best in my life, but they wore me out and now I have to continue life on different paths.
Thanks to everyone involved – you made this journey spectacular, thanks to everyone that came up and said hi – it meant the world to me, thanks to everyone who believed in me – you made me believe in myself. Jonathan, Adam and Johannes. I love you.
“The end of nights we tried to die – this is the end.””
For Tribulation, however, this is not the end, but a new beginning.
After this period of silence, renewal and contemplation the time has now come to give you the new Tribulation! We have now fully immersed ourselves in the making of a new album that will be recorded at summer’s end.
We are very pleased to announce that Oscar Leander (previously in Deathstars) is our new drummer. He will make his first appearance with us on Muskelrock på Tyrolen now on Thursday, June 1st!
Are you ready? We are!
Oscar Leander – Drums
Johannes Andersson – Bass & Vocals
Jonathan Hultén – Guitars
Adam Zaars – Guitars
Though the band has been forced to cancel its appearance at Bang Your Head, they will play at Metal Magic Festival and Graspop Metal Meeting.
