Pain Of Salvation have issued the following announcement:

"One of the world's best drummers has decided to be one of the world's best fathers and 9-5 workers instead. We are sad to announce that Johan Langell has decided to leave the band, to focus on family. This is not a sudden decision, but something that has been pending for several years."

You can read the whole Langell statement here:

All band members have also commented his departure on the band's official website:

Sad to hear he is leaving. Johan has been one of my personal favorite drummers for a while. But at least he is leaving for a really good reason. In fact one of the best reasons.

Prayers go out for Johan and his family as they take a new step, and for the remaining members of Pain of Salvation as they deal with another loss in their band.

Bad news, but the reason is good, yep.

bassist of Evergrey leaves shortly after the release of their sellout album, drummer of PoS leaves shortly after the release of their sellout album. Let that be a lesson to all you sellouts!

Bad news, another member leaving Pain of Salvation... Hope they'll find another great drummer as Johan, he was amazing!
Good luck Johan

That's two members gone in recent times. Well, I'll still get to see him at Hellfest at least.

@Jonathan Tweet: You're too narrow minded.

These are very bad news, he's one of the best drummers out there. Hope he has a good life with his family anyway.
