Dark Tranquillity bassist leaves band
Dark Tranquillity has announced the amicable departure of bass player Daniel Antonsson:
"Shortly before beginning the studio sessions for the upcoming 10th studio album "Construct," the band amicably parted ways with bassist Daniel Antonsson. "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. 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. "We thanks 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."
