Swedish death metallers Evocation have announced the departure of bassist Martin "Tore" Toresson.

The band issued the following statement: "It's with great sadness we have to announce the departure of bass player Martin "Tore" Toresson from Evocation. Tore has been a part of the band ever since the reunion in 2005 and has grown into become a brother with us. We have shared many great memories in the years we have played together but now it has come to an end. Tore has declared to the band that due to a lack of motivation he has decided to step down from his position as bass player in Evocation. The band respects his decision but we also know he will be greatly missed by both the band and the Evocation fans that have had the chance to see Tore perform live and meet him at shows. From the bands side we want to wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors."

Martin "Tore" Toresson commented: "Due to a lack of motivation I have decided to quit Evocation. It feels like a big release, even if it was a very hard decision to take. My time in Evocation has given me a lot of great memories, many new friends and four fantastic brothers. But it got to a point when it was no fun anymore. I wish my brothers in Evocation the best of luck in the future and I'm really looking forward to hearing the new album which I know is going to be a killer!"

"As we are announcing the departure of Tore we would also like to announce that we are now starting the search of a new bass player for Evocation. We are looking for an experienced bass player with live experience and that has a stage presence. If you think you could fit as the future bass player for Evocation, then please send your application together with some lines about who you are, videoclips, youtubeclips, photos, etc. to: marko@evocation.se."
