Le batteur Daniel Liljekvist a décidé de quitter le groupe pour retrouver une vie de famille et un job "normal", la "bière de merde" en tournée ne lui manquera pas…

Dear friends and fans,

I’ve been thinking about this for the last couple of months and I’ve come to the sad conclusion that i have to leave the band. It’s got nothing to do with ’difference in views or any other bullshit. I just cannot combine job, family and commit 100% to Katatonia. Times for musicians are rough and I’ve decided to concentrate on my family and get a normal job that gets the bills paid.

I’ve had some of the best moments in my life the past 14 odd years together with my favorite people in the world. I’ve been all over the planet with this lot…my second family. Thank you! I’m gonna miss playing with you and I’m gonna miss hanging out with you on the road so much. And I’m gonna miss meeting all the great Katatonia fans all over the world. You know who you are. You are truly amazing! I’m not gonna miss all the freaks and idiots we’ve come across during all the years. You probably don’t know who you are. And I will not miss bad catering, shit beer and banana juice…

This is Daniel, rocking the fuck off! Cheers!
