Tribulation - Drummer Leaves Band

Swedish metallers Tribulation have announced that drummer Jakob Ljungberg has decided to leave after five years in the band. It seems that his departure happened in good terms, as the band and the drummer express their mutual love and good wishes in their statements that you can read below.

Tribulation had this to say: "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!"

Jakob Ljungberg comments: "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 the new drummer in the coming weeks before the summer festivals kick off.

Well, damn. Wish him the best. Loved his drumming, particularly on Formulas. Really excited to hear what they do next.

That drumming and the production on the latest album was second to none for mine.
