Tantara Splits With Guitarist Per Semb

Guitarist Per Semb from Tantara has checked in with the following statement about parting ways with the band:

"It's with a heavy heart I'm telling you this, but my time in Tantara is now over. I've decided to leave the band after almost 4 years with lots of fun and memories I will remember for the rest of my life.

"You may wonder why I've decided to do this: I'm no longer motivated for this way of life. The European tour was too much for me both mentally and physically, and it all went up for me that I can't handle something like that again. I've also got other goals and dreams in my life that I want to focus on and try the best to fulfill.

"Don't worry, I'm not giving up music in general. My passion for music is still strong, but the life on the road is simply not for me. I will still continue making music, but it won't be on a such serious level. Feel free to contact me on my official page if you got (musical) questions.

"I want to thank everyone that have supported me and the band, those of you who showed up to our gigs, to all of you that have thrashed, headbanged, moshed... Simply enjoyed our music in a way or another. You guys have been great, and I'm thankful that I was lucky enough to be a part of something this special and unique. That I managed to fulfill my biggest dreams in such young age. I'll never forget it.

"It's sad, but life goes on. I wish all the best for the band, and I'm proud of all the things they've learned. I know they're able to continue on the road into the future without me.
Thank you for the experience. It's been a blast!"

The band also adds: "On that note, Tantara will continue working hard towards the new album, and now we're more motivated than we've ever been. We want to wish Per good luck in the future, and we want to thank for him for 4 good years as a band. It has been awesome! Fredrik, Stian and Emil will continue doing what they love - making music and being Tantara. We'll be back!"
