CANDLEMASS - Part Ways With Vocalist, Replacement Announced2012-06-03
Swedish doom metallers Candlemass have parted ways with vocalist Robert Lowe. The band released the following statement on the changes: "We are sorry to inform you that Robert Lowe is no longer the singer for Candlemass. It has been a very difficult decision for the band and has mainly to do with the quality of the live performances."
"For the upcoming shows Robert will be replaced with Mats Levén, longtime friend of the band. We are convinced this will work out just great. The band is currently rehearsing new and old songs with Mats and we know that nobody attending the gigs at Debaser Slussen, Metaltown, Borås or Southern Discomfort will be disappointed. Bring your earplugs... it will be hard, massive and loud! Keyboard player Per Wiberg is also joining Candlemass onstage for the live shows. Psalms for the dead... nothing else remains!"
