Pro-Pain Comments On The Departure Of Guitarist Tom Klimchuck

Pro-Pain has posted the following statement online in response to the departure of Guitarist Tom Klimchuck:

"It is with great sadness that we bring to you (the fans) the following news: Due to unexpected circumstances regarding some potentially serious health issues, our longtime lead guitarist and dear friend Tom Klimchuck will unfortunately have to put his musical endeavors on hold for at least the foreseeable future.

"Although we all wanted so much for Tom to be able to participate in the 20-year anniversary tours, we collectively decided that it was too risky and that his health and family should take precedence. Thankfully, (with Tom's blessing), we have found a replacement in Adam Phillips (Indorphine) and so the tours will move forward as planned. The fans can expect a great show, as we have quite an ambitious set list lined up for them.

"We welcome Adam aboard and we wish Tom a speedy and full recovery.

"Thank you all for your support during this difficult time and transition, and special thanks to Tom for his many years of flawless commitment to our beloved band (this tour's for you). We hope to see you all at the gigs!!"
