Royal Hunt - Bassist Leaves The Band

Bassist Per Schelander has announced he'll be parting ways with Royal Hunt.

Here's his official statement: "After 4 rollercoaster years of music, laughter and good memories I have to leave Royal Hunt - the reason is that I simply can't (due to my obligations in Pain Of Salvation) give RH the time and effort the band deserves. It's been lovely to play with you guys - André, Marcus, Allan, Mark and Maria! It also feels good to pass the torch to such a great player as Andreas Passmark, who will fit the band perfectly. My warmest thanks go to all the fans I met during these last 4 years - you really made me feel welcome when I was the new guy and loved while I was on board!"

Royal Hunt commented: "We'd like to thank Per for 4 wonderful years with us - his dedication, remarkable musical abilities and easy-going personality has been a great asset to us all. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours, all the success which he so rightfully deserves and - while saying goodbye to a talented bass player - looking forward to continuation of a great friendship.

We'd also like to introduce our new friend, an extremely gifted bass player Andreas Passmark (Narnia, Rob Rock, E-Type). Pictures, mp3´s and other details in the "Studio Diary" section."

Hope this change won't affect their music in a negative way

Well... I think they've finished recording the album anyway, so at least the upcoming album should be fine

Four years, huh? His stint in the band was worth it. I should hear more music from this band.
