Kvelertak Drummer To Miss Upcoming Tour Dates, Replacement Jay Weinberg Announced
Kvelertak is current on tour in the U.S. and the band has checked in with the following announcement about recruiting a fill-in drummer on the road:
"Our drummer Kjetil has been having trouble with his arm and was unfortunately unable to continue our ongoing North America tour. He left home for Norway yesterday to get treatment so that he doesn't permanently damage his hand, which would suck so much balls.
"But, we were lucky to get an awesome replacement in Jay Weinberg (Against Me, Madball, E-street) who learned all the songs and played an amazing set yesterday in Seattle. Kjetil is a hard drummer to replace, but Jay might just be the best replacement imaginable. Thanks Jay!!
"So, the tour will continue as planned, and tonight is our first show ever in Canada! Vancouver, Rickshaw Theatre to be specific. Come down and rage!!"
