Sabatons gitarrist lämnar bandet från och med augusti.
Thorbjörn ”Thobbe” Englund har varit medlem i bandet sedan 2012. Under veckan meddelade Thobbe på Sabatons officiella Facebooksida att han lämnar bandet.
Today I have decided to announce my leave from Sabaton.
Why? …many may ask.
– There is this thing that I truly believe in, and that is that one should always follow the heart.
I have in recent years become more aware of what would make me feel real happiness and content, and that is to expand my own creativeness in combination with a somewhat stiller life, where I will not tour all year round at the speed of light.
Unfortunately as a consequence I will not be able to meet all of you wonderful people out there, which is sad, and I´m really gonna miss you all.
But I will still be making music, of course, and as I am writing this I am making plans for the future.
During the many years of touring with Sabaton we have become like brothers.
Together with the best crew in the world we´ve had a true blast and there is a bond between all of us that cannot be broken.
Therefore I find no reason to be sentimental, because brothers and sisters are friends for life, and the future is bright!
Always yours truly.
Thobbe Englund kommer att göra några till spelningar med Sabaton och avslutar sin karriär i bandet under Sabatons egna festival Sabaton Open Air. Spelningen äger rum den 20 augusti.
