Vocalist Johan Edlund Reportedly Departs Tiamat

The Tiamat Facebook page was updated last night with a message from front man Johan Edlund indicating he is leaving the band. Due to the humorous nature of the post, and the fact that nothing has been released from the band's management or label, it's not clear if it was serious or an attempt at a belated April Fool's joke. Johan writes:

"I have decided to leave Tiamat. My health etc.. Doesn't work anylonger. I say leave because I don't claim anything Tiamat. If the other guys wanna continue, fine.. Go ahead. Get a great good looking vocalist, sign to Century Media & just do it. But I'm out & not even interested apart from wishing all the best for the band.

"All contracts & such will be handed out to Anders, lars & Roger, if they're into it. I want nothing from this, I was spoiled too much of being an adult. Give someone a better chance. I will do the four festivals we have booked for the summer. Face it, there are other bands, plus even Tiamat might get better! Love my brothers & thank YOU for your support! KISSES!"

The band's latest full-length "The Scarred People" (reviewed here) was released in 2012, which follows the 2008 opus "Amanthes" (reviewed here).
