Soilwork Offer Update On Their Future Plans In Light Of The Death Of Their Guitarist David Andersson


Swedish melodic death metal outfit Soilwork have commented on their future plans following last week’s tragic passing of their guitarist David Andersson. Last Wednesday, September 14th saw the band announce the death of the 47-year-old musician. While an official cause of death was not revealed, the group attributed his passing to “alcohol and mental illness.”

Commenting on social media earlier today (September 19th), Soilwork offered:

“Today marks the 1 month anniversary of ‘Övergivenheten’ – David’s final work with us. He poured so much of himself into this album and together we created something really special.

In the wake of last week’s tragic event, we would like to emphasize that we will carry on the musical legacy of this band and continue to present ‘Övergivenheten’ to our fans, and bring the new songs on the road around the world in David’s memory.

We are soon ready to announce upcoming touring activities and as of our announced Australian tour it will move on as scheduled.

We would also like to thank everyone for reaching out paying their respect and condolences as well as sharing beautiful memories with this band and David. Thank you for your compassion and understanding.”
