Der erst kürzlich bekannt gegebene neue STRATOVARIUS Drummer, Andre Johansson trennt sich wieder von der Band um TIMO TOLKKI. Andre wird zukünftig mehr Zeit als
Trommler bei HAMMERFALL investieren. Damit es beim STRATOVARIUS Lineupwechsel nicht langweilig wird, gibt TIMO TOLKKI demnächst den Namen eines aus Finnland
stammenden neuen Trommlers bekannt.

Statement from Timo Tolkki regarding the departure of Anders Johansson:
He gave me a call and said that he doesn´t want to join the band permanently and that he is happy to be in Hammerfall playing True Metal. Since I am looking for a permanent member, we agreed in good spirits to go separate ways. I am very disappointed that he didn´t want to join STRATOVARIUS permanently, but at the same time I wish him and the Hammerfall guys well and best of luck with their career.
I suspect that the decision of Anders has something to do with my reputation. I can understand him very well, I wouldn´t join a band in which I would be playing in.
I have already contacted a Finnish drummer and I hope I can announce his name very soon.
In Metal, Timo Tolkki
