Longtime DISMEMBER drummer/producer Fred Estby has announced that he will be leaving the band after nearly 19 years. Here is word directly from the band:
“We are sad to announce that after almost 20 years Fred has, after long and careful consideration, decided to leave the band.
“‘My decision to put my family in first hand makes it impossible to keep on touring and commit to the band full time. I want to thank all the fans, friends, bands and all the other cool people i’ve met through the years and I wish Dismember all the best in the future. Fred.’
“DISMEMBER are currently in the process of writing new material and this sad loss will not interrupt any future plans in any way. The commitment to keep on playing is stronger than ever!”
