Tribulation drummer quits. A drummer replacement has already been taken care of.
Swedish Tribulation has announced that their drummer Jakob Ljungberg has left the band in order to focus on his guitarist & singer role in his group Second Sun. Tribulation already has someone in mind to replace Jakob.
Jakob Ljungberg commented about his departure:
”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.
The band will announce their new drummer in the coming weeks before the summer festivals kick off!
Jakob was part of the band’s sound change. He recorded both “The Formulas of Death” in 2013 and the great “The Children of the Night” in 2015.
Here’s the band’s official statement:
“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!
