The following message has been posted on the band's official website:

"As a result of personal issues, HateSphere and vocalist Jacob Bredahl have parted ways. This has been in the air for a little while now and is without doubt, the best decision for the band. Having to tour with a person who's not able to give it one hundred percent in the future and vice versa is pointless. We'd like to thank Jacob for 10 years of hard work and good times, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavours! This may come as a shock for many of you but we can only emphasize that HateSphere will continue and are already in the midst of auditioning new singers.

In effect of this and some unanticipated, economical circumstances, we have been forced to cancel our upcoming European tour with Dimmu Borgir and Amon Amarth. We are very sorry for that but have seen no other solution, as it would be too difficult to find a new singer in only ten days. The gigs we have after the tour will not be affected by this, and we promise you all to come back soon and make it up to you.

Jacob and Pepe have always been a part of what is called HateSphere, so no question that this is also weird for the rest of the band. As you probably know, Pepe has always been writing practically all the music, so as far as that matter goes, it shouldn't mean that much. Also, the song writing for the next album is about to start and we are looking forward to work together as a new and revitalized group.

We know all you fans will have tons of questions but what's been said here explains everything, so please refrain from asking questions regarding this subject. Jacob left on amicable terms and we are simply moving on. We realize this has to be weird for you guys, to see almost the entire band being replaced just within three months, but there's no other way and we have so much more music in us, so why stop now? Hopefully you will respect our decisions and support us in the future - We are still here and will be back sooner than you think, to kick you in the ass!

See you all on the road soon!

Wow, this was unexpected... Not that Bredahl's vocals were anything special - just good normal screams - but he had a very commanding presence onstage and seemed to be quite a moving force behind the band, at least live. Too bad.

Fuck, and I've missed them at Wacken!

I really liked his voice! Good thing I got to see them before this happened. A pity, but I don't really care that much. Hope he continues in another band!

Too bad, it should have been great to see HateSphere on stage with Amon Amarth and Dimmu Borgir... Too bad, Jacob was a great frontman IMO...

This is a bad news yes...

Hatespehere is a good band I hope that both parts, the band and Jacob, will find a way to continue their road in the world of Music...

the only thing I am thinking right now - is I hope we're going to get a good band to replace them on the tour

Hmm.. that's too bad. It almost looks like the whole band falls apart. 2 or 3 members left the band in a short period of time.

Was quite shocked to hear that. Does anything think this will affect the Dimmu Borgir tour?
Der Meister - 18.09.2007 at 19:35  
Shit! Ofcourse it had to be the tour I was going to see them on. This makes me a sad little boy.

Can they resist playing for a sad little boy?
Fane - 18.09.2007 at 21:22  
Oh damn =/ Jacob was indeed a damn good vocalist. I wasn't going to see them live now but it sure is sad to those who were.

Hope they find a new vocalist fast and even as good as Jacob.

Tough year for Hatesphere it seems...
Wondering how that new album will work out with all those reformations.
