DARK TRANQUILLITY haben sich von ihrem Bassisten Michael Nicklasson getrennt. Alle anstehenden Konzerte werden mit einem Session-Bassist gespielt.
Offizielles Statement von Michael:
After almost 10 years and tons of tours and festivals, I chose to leave D.T. for personal reasons. It´s been so cool all this time to meet all the people and the tons of fans around the world, and all the friends that I got during this amazing journey – crew, fans and all the people I (we) worked with. I can´t name everyone, as the list would take up all the space on the web site, but I´m going to miss all of you that worked and supported us (me) during these years, but this is the right thing to do, I really need a break. There are no hard feelings in the band, it´s a thing that we all felt was the best for D.T.. Now I´m going to kick back for a while, and then I´ll see what´s in the future for me. I wish the best for the rest off the boys in my old crew, and to all: I´m coming back in one way or another……thanx to all off you! Cheers! /mickey
