Dead By April - Part Ways With Vocalist, Replacement Announced

Swedish metalcore act Dead By April announced that the band has parted ways with vocalist Jimmie Strimell, who has been part of it from the very beginning. He will be replaced by Christoffer "Stoffe" Andersson (ex-By Night), who has also performed in Sonic Syndicate as guest vocalist in the past.

The band commented: "We are deeply sorry to inform you that Jimmie Strimell no longer will be a part of Dead By April. The reason we had to make this decision is because of Jimmie's personal problems. His problems has affected the band for many years and we have basically tried everything we could to make this work. We have even gone through group therapy lately to get honesty and sincerity into the group. As nothing changed we had to realize that if we want to move forward with this band there's unfortunately no other way but to continue without Jimmie. We're sick of not knowing whether he'll turn up for shows, recordings and sick of having such bad environment within the band - at all time. It came to a point where we could not be in the same vehicle. With unforgettable memories and great times together we'd like to thank Jimmie for these years. We hope for your support and understanding about this, that we would never announce this decision unless it was absolutely necessary and our only choice.

"With that said we also have some good news to announce. We have found our replacement and we want to introduce you to Christoffer "Stoffe" Andersson, who has previously been performing as guest vocalist in Sonic Syndicate and has been playing in Markus' other band By Night. Stoffe is a firm member of the band and will obviously be a part of the live shows to come and the record we're currently recording.

"Dead By April is here to stay and the forthcoming tour is happening and we're currently recording to what will become our third album to date. We'll release an EP of tracks by May to support the extensive European tour we'll be on. We hope to see you all there."
