Sonic Syndicate Parts Ways With Vocalist, Roland Johansson

Swedish death metal band, Sonic Syndicate, has issued the following update regarding the departure of vocalist Roland Johansson:

"Today, March 30th, Sonic Syndicate regrets to announce that Roland has decided to leave Sonic Syndicate due to personal reasons beyond our control. All of us in Sonic Syndicate wish Roland the best of luck in the future and we plan to continue our friendship / brotherhood outside the band. Thank you for all the hard work, and the good / bad times we had together."

"Today we have started the search for a new singer. All of us in Sonic Syndicate are so full of energy and we can't wait to get a new member / family member into the band and continue our long life dreams. The last two years have been more then amazing for us, we've seen half the world, meet so many great fans and made even more along the way. You guys are what keeps us alive and makes life exciting."

"Yesterday, the five of us sat down and agreed that our search should not be limited to our inner circle. This is a very big opportunity for us and we want everyone out there to have a chance to spread the word and be a part of the search. Maybe it will be you, a friend or a friend of a friend who will be the next singer of Sonic Syndicate."

This band always needed a new vocalist imo. I saw em live and the vocal melodies were very repetitive. The music was pretty decent though...

Even tho this is my fav band, thsi could be a good thing, they were starting to get really soft, and roland does all the soft parts, so hopefully when they get a new singer and make new songs they bring some more screaming in

I agree. I love the very first album. Second was ok but the third ruined it for me. Had high hopes for their third album but I only like Affliction :(
