Paradise Lost

Drummer Adrian Erlandsson Officially Exits Paradise Lost


Drummer Adrian Erlandsson (also of At The Gates/The Haunted) has officially announced his departure from Paradise Lost. Erlandsson had originally stepped aside last year with the group recruiting Waltteri Väyrynen to fill-in. Earlier today (June 14th) Erlandsson offered the below statement via his Facebook:

“For the ones that don’t already know, I am no longer playing with Paradise Lost.
When “The Plague within” was released last year I was in the middle of gigs with At The Gates and The Haunted
Since I couldn’t make all the gigs for the new album,
it made sense for PL to have someone that can be there the whole time, which I couldn’t.
I want to thank everyone in the band and management.
It has been an amazing ride playing with one of my favourite bands and I feel very proud of the work we did together.”

Official word of his departure arrives just as the band announced their signing to Nuclear Blast.
