Chances are this may be old news to you. It broke late last night and I decided to give my laptop a fucking break, and so, I bring you this news now.
Dark Tranquillity has announced that they’ve amicably parted with bass player Daniel Antonsson.
The band says this all went down “shortly before beginning the studio sessions for the upcoming 10th studio album Construct.
“The decision has been growing for a while, and the main reason is that Daniel wanted to focus on his own musical projects as well as working more in his recording studio,” says the band in a statement. “Being first and foremost a guitarist, he felt that the playing bass in a full-time band didn’t allow him much time for his main instrument and true passion.
“With this in mind, he chose to follow his heart and step aside at this point instead of committing to another album and an intense touring cycle that would leave little room for other activities,” Dark Tranquility says.
“We thank Daniel for his years in the band — filled with great shows and amazing memories and experiences in all corners of the world — and wish him all the best with his future musical career.”
So, I am assuming they are in the market for a new bassist. Just going out on a limb there.
Or maybe they have one, and just didn’t name him or her.
We’ll keep you posted.
