And not just a new bass player but a new member who would fit the shoes of representing Deals Death on all levels. Power, strength and skill. Along with a mighty ambition to take it to the next level and a mind set to fit our own. We could only think of one person.

Introducing himself to Deals Death fans, Kammo comments: "I'm really excited to take on the role as the bass player of Deals Death. I feel honoured to be playing with such great musicians and can't wait to deliver some bass tones to these killer riffs. See you all on the road this fall!" More...

Gothenburg act Deals Death has parted ways with bass player Fredrik Ljung. The band comments:
”There are times when everything is great, there are times when everything is bad. And there are times when different paths are chosen and you simply drift apart. Things like these are never easily decided and we thank our friend and bandmate for 3 awesome years and wish you a brilliant future."
Fredrik Ljung also issued the following statement:
"Dear friends and fans! As you now know, I have left the band. We saw it as the only way to go and I want to thank everyone who has gotten me and Deals Death to the point where we are at today. There are many reasons for my goodbye but I personally feel that I'm not on the same wavelength as the present band. And when you play in a band such as Deals Death you have to be able to give it your all!
"My last contribution with Deals Death is recorded and will be heard on the new album and I'm sure you'll like it. I will continue with my other projects and have no intention to quit making music what so ever. I would also like to thank Deals Death for this wonderful time and great memories!"
