Swedish metal act Tribulation has announced the departure of drummer Jakob Ljungberg, who joined the band in 2012. Tribulation has issued the following:
"As the summer in the year of their lord 2017 draws near and the world in the north is again fully starting to wake from its slumber we, on the other hand, are forced to face an inevitable end in the departure of our drummer Jakob Ljungberg who has decided to leave the band. We have spent the last five years together through pain to heaven, in chaos to bliss! It's been such a strange, wonderful, tiring and inspiring time and we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making this time the most important in the history of the band. We surely couldn't have done it without you. We were like brothers even before the time of Tribulation and we certainly will be in the time after! Make sure to check out Jakob's unique and most excellent band Second Sun where he sings and plays guitar!"Meanwhile, Ljungberg had this to say:
"It is with a heavy heart that I leave Tribulation. These last years have been among the best in my life, but they wore me out and now I have to continue life on different paths. Thanks to everyone involved - you made this journey spectacular, thanks to everyone that came up and said hi - it meant the world to me, thanks to everyone who believed in me - you made me believe in myself. Jonathan, Adam and Johannes. I love you."Tribulation added that they will announce a new drummer in the "coming weeks."
