According to Sweden's Close-Up magazine, long-running Swedish Death Metallers Dismember have tapped drummer Thomas Daun (ex-Repugnant, Insision, Subvision) for their upcoming European tour.
Dismember last month announced that it has parted ways with longtime drummer Fred Estby. "My decision to put my family in first hand makes it impossible to keep on touring and commit to the band full-time," Estby said in a statement. "I want to thank all the fans, friends, bands and all the other cool people I've met through the years and I wish Dismember all the best in the future."
Dismember is currently in the process of writing new material and "this sad loss will not interrupt any future plans in any way," the band wrote on its web site. "The commitment to keep on playing is stronger than ever!"
Swedish Melodic Death Metaller Dismember have issued the following statement:
"The Polish agency Rose Productions has cancelled our tour in Poland two days before its start. In our nineteen-year-old history we have never encountered this level of unprofessionalism! The cancellation of the tour is totally Rose Productions' fault and Dismember would like to apologise to the Polish fans, we really looked forward to the tour."
Swedish Death Metal legends Dismember have posted the following update:
"We are sad to announce that after almost 20 years Fred has, after long and careful consideration, decided to leave the band.
'My decision to put my family in first hand makes it impossible to keep on touring and commit to the band full time. I want to thank all the fans, friends, bands and all the other cool people I've met through the years and I wish Dismember all the best in the future. Fred.'
Dismember are currently in the process of writing new material and this sad loss will not interrupt any future plans in any way. The commitment to keep on playing is stronger than ever!"

Swedish death metallers Dismember have cancelled their previously announced West Coast tour with Grave. Here goes the statement of the band:
"The US tour is cancelled due to financial reasons. The band is really sorry for this and has already started working on a new US tour for the spring of 2007 to make up for the lost dates. More info will come soon."
The trek, which was originally slated to be headlined by Entombed, was scheduled to kick off December 1 in Hollywood, California.
After Entombed just announcing the cancellation of the Entombed/Dismember/Grave North American tour, Dismember and Grave both still want to play. Entombed were forced to cancel, through no fault of their own, their participation in the tour, but Thunderdome Touring have just announced the re-securing of both Dismember and Grave.
Here is a comment by Thunderdome Touring: "Our phones have been ringing non-stop and neither Dismember nor Grave want to let any of their fans down. The tour will go on, without Entombed or The Absence".
The previously announced Entombed/Dismember/Grave "The Absence North American" tour, which was scheduled to take place December 1-16, is now officially cancelled.
Entombed posted the following on the bands official myspace page:
'Due to circumstances beyond our control Entombed sadly has had to postpone their upcoming USA West Coast trek.
We were very much looking forward to this tour, but conflicts with the promotor, breach of trust and straight up lies have unfortunately forced us to cancel at the eleventh hour. Never in 15 years of touring the States has this happened, which really is saying something. We are appalled, and you should not be surprised if you see/hear more lies spread about how it is Entombed's fault that we could not do the tour because we changed our minds or some shit like that. Simply not true. We've never seen blame passed around like this ever before and deeply regret having lent our name to this madness.
Swedish Death Metallers Dismember have announced that they will be undertaking a tour of Russia and Ukraine. They've called it their 'Eastern Invasion Tour 2006' and the tour will commence in early September.
