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."
Read the whole story:
Digging: TesseracT - Altered State
He really will be Dead by April.
Digging: The Wonder Years - The Greatest Generation
get rid of every member
Digging: Faith No More - The Real Thing
Wow joshie, that was real fucking clever
guy sounds like a piece of shit glad they kicked him
now they need to study some actual songwriting techniques and maybe they'll make a halfway decent album
justin timberlake needs a band and dead by april need a vocalist!
Digging: LCD Soundsystem - This Is Happening
If only someone would kick the rest of them out.
Jimmie and Pontus are the band :/ sad to see the best member go :/
Hopefully they'll kick themselves off the face of the universe
Digging: Radiohead - In Rainbows
that would also be nice
lol Christoffer Andersson helped ruin Sonic Syndicate so this upcoming EP is likely to be shit
nothing will change then
I can't find any samples of Christoffer :/ can anyone help?
