Sweden’s HYPOCRISY have announced a line-up change in the band. The official announcement from bandleader, Peter Tägtgren, reads as follows:
“We had a band meeting today and the three of us decided that, for ‘our own’ reasons, Lars Szöke will no longer play in the band.
“It’s always heavy when an orginal member leaves a band. Lars and I have been playing together for 20 years in different bands and he’s been kicking the shit out of the drums in HYPOCRISY for 13 years. But now it’s time to move on.
“The new drummer for HYPOCRISY is none other than Horgh (ex-IMMORTAL, GRIMFIST) and we’re convinced that he will kick the shit out of the drums as well… We will see you on The Arrival tour in either Europe or the USA, giving you 100%!”
This line-up change comes just in time for the band’s US tour with CANNIBAL CORPSE, EXHUMED, and VILE. Go here is a list of confirmed dates.
