Nightrage vocalist Tomas Lindberg has announced his departure from the Swedish metal band via the following statement:

"Dear fans of Nightrage and metal in general, I'm sad to announce my departure from the mighty Nightrage. This is a band I joined some time ago to help my friend Marios out. But over the course of time I´ve grown deeply fond of being a part of this extraordinary band. But as you might know I'm a busy soul and have no other option that to give up one of my projects, only becuase of lack of time. My only comfort is that Nightrage now can continue at full speed without me holding them back. But I will continue to follow their career, cause I have great expectations for the future of this band. Hail Marios! Hail Nightrage."

Lindberg has subsequently been replaced by Jimmie Strimell, who has already begun rehearsing with the band. Strimell had the following to say:

"I just want to tell you that I am so happy to join Nightrage and it's a big honour to take over after Tomas. I promise you guys that I will do the songs justice and you will not be dissapointed."
