Swedish tech metallers Aeon have lost their drummer Nils Fjellström. Nils apparently left the band suddenly for personal issues he’d like to keep private.
I wanna know, I wanna know — why’d you go, Nils? Sounds like something juicy, considering you don’t want anyone knowing about it. In a statement, the band says that, since Nils has “chosen not to speak his mind out to the public about this” that the band “will respect his wish not to do so, and therefore we will not reveal any details nor answering questions about this.”
This isn’t the first time Nils has jumped ship, leaving the band in a tight spot. The band “really think[s] that we will be better off without him in the long run. We need a drummer who we can rely on at all times, someone who can be there for us when opportunities shows up. To take this band any further, we need a line-up where everyone has the same visions and goals.”
Unfortunately, the band will have to pull out of its upcoming performance October 16 overseas.
“We only had one show planned ahead that was scheduled to take place. We kindly asked Nils to do at least this show with us before he left, but he simply didn’t agree to do so. This leaves us with no choice but to cancel our spot in this event. There is just to little time to rehearse a full headline set with a new session-drummer.”
The band is now looking for a replacement.
