Kitaristi Johan ”Jeoan” Olsson on jättänyt ruotsalaisen pop-metal -yhtye Dead By Aprilin. Yhtyeen mukaan kitaristin puuttuminen ei vaikuta bändin tulevaan brittien kiertueesee eikä tulevan levyn nauhoituksiin. Lue lisää nähdäksesi hänen virallisen viestin aiheesta.
We have had some differences and been going in different directions for a while and there`s always a certain point you reach when you need to really decide if you can go forward together or not.
So I have decided to leave Dead by April to focus mainly on my own music and bands. Also give time to my other projects like my clothing company ”Suckerpunch Clothing” as well as of course my family and friends.
It is every kids dream to be a ”rockstar” and you always have to balance the good against the bad.
I genuinely love the lifestyle, touring, playing live, practicing and all that surrounds a rock band so I am in no way giving up on music or being a musician at all. You have not seen the last of me.
On the contrary it`s an opportunity for me to take the path that I want and that is more important than anything else right now. So I won`t be participating at all on the new album and I will also not participate in the UK tour.
That`s the way life is sometimes and people go separate ways but that doesn`t mean I`m not proud of what we have done and accomplished in the years I have been in the band.
Huge thanks everyone who supported me, my sponsors, our manager, labels, booking agents and of course all you fans who have made this so remarkable. I will miss you guys for sure!
Also of course special thanks to all the guys in the band, we`ve been thru alot together.
It`s been a hell of a ride.
Respect to you all and I truly wish you the best of luck in the future.
Catch you on the flipside…
Johan ”Jeoan” Olsson
