Swedish metallers Dark Tranquillity have posted the following update on their website:

D.T. has parted ways with longtime bass player Michael Nicklasson. All booked shows will go on as scheduled with a session bassist. We thank Michael for his time in the band and wish him the best of luck in future endeavours. Here is a statement from him.

"After almost 10 years and tons of tours and festivals, I chose to leave D.T. for personal reasons. It's been so cool all this time to meet all the people and the tons of fans around the world, and all the friends that I got during this amazing journey - crew, fans and all the people I (we) worked with. I can't name everyone, as the list would take up all the space on the web site, but I'm going to miss all of you that worked and supported us (me) during these years, but this is the right thing to do, I really need a break."

"There are no hard feelings in the band, it's a thing that we all felt was the best for D.T.. Now I'm going to kick back for a while, and then I'll see what's in the future for me. I wish the best for the rest off the boys in my old crew, and to all: I'm coming back in one way or another......thanx to all off you! Cheers!"

ohh man.. Sad loss for DT.. All there is to do, is to thank him and wish the best for him then!

This is bad, he wrote great lines for DT. It's sad indeed. We never like when bandmembers leave, its usually a bad sign.

Very bad news, I haven't see this coming...

We only have left to wish Michael good luck on his personal life, and thank him for his awesome job.
But it's still sad

Bad news but life goes on. A departure not linked to tensions in the band is not so bad...

Sad news but I wonder what happened to him?
Black Conundrum - 24.08.2008 at 20:58

I had to happen sooner or later he has diabetes type 2...
We can only hope that DT will find someone with such smooth bass lines and stage charisma
wish you all the best Micke
