Dead by April kicks out singer
2013-03-18 by Conexus | 16 Comments

Swedish pop/metal lovechild Dead by April have announced the departure of their founding member, vocalist and main composer Jimmie Strimmel. According to their press statement issued on March 18th they were forced to ask Jimmie to leave the group due to his "personal problems".

They also revealed that a permanent replacement has been found in Christoffer Andersson (What Tomorrow Brings/Sonic Syndicate) and that they will be releasing a new EP in May.

"We’re deeply sorry to inform you that Jimmie Strimell no longer will be a part of Dead By April. The reason we had to make this decision is because of Jimmie’s personal problems. His problems has affected the band for many years and we have basically tried everything we could to make this work. We have even gone through group therapy lately to get honesty and sincerity into the group. As nothing changed we had to realize that if we want to move forward with this band there’s unfortunately no other way but to continue without Jimmie. We’re sick of not knowing whether he’ll turn up for shows, recordings and sick of having such bad environment within the band – at all time. It came to a point where we could not be in the same vehicle."
