Soilwork has announced that guitarist Peter Wichers has decided to leave the group for the second time, citing creative differences. A statement from Wichers reads as follows:

"I want to thank everyone who has supported Soilwork over the years. It has been a wild and fun ride, but it’s time for me to explore different options in my career. I will cherish all the amazing moments I have gathered from my time with Soilwork, and I would not be where I am today without the help from you fans, my family and Soilwork. Thank you!"

Wichers is one of the founding members of the band but left the group in 2005 owing to tour exhaustion and personal issues, before rejoining the group in 2008 and taking part in the recording of their 2010 album, "The Panic Broadcast."

Probably got sick of them not making records like 'A Predators Portrait' and 'Natural Born Chaos'. Back when mention of Soilwork would get a "Yes!" as opposed to todays "Meh" and a shrug.
