SOILWORK Part Ways With Guitarist Ola Frenning

Swedish metallers SOILWORK, who recently completed a U.S. tour with LAMB OF GOD, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE in support of their new album Sworn To A Great Divide, have decided to part ways with guitarist Ola Frenning.

It was felt that Ola resisted the demands of the road and found it difficult to come to terms with the amount of touring scheduled.

Sworn To A Great Divide is SOILWORK‘s fastest seller and the live demand for the band is growing. They intend to play everywhere and fulfill the album’s potential.

Vocalist Björn “Speed” Strid says: “It was a very difficult decision to make because Ola has been our friend and bandmate for a very long time.”

The decision will not affect any of SOILWORK‘s plans. Guitarist David Andersson will fill in on their upcoming Finnish/Baltic tour as well as the “Scum Of The Earth” U.S. tour with THROWDOWN. The band will then tour Australia, Japan and Southeast Asia before returning to Europe for festivals and a headlining U.S. tour in the fall.

Ola Frenning comments: “After 10 years, seven albums and several world wide tours, we’ve realized that we have developed in different directions and have a different set of values, profession wise. The disagreements have reached their peak and it has become an untenable situation. The band’s solution is that I part ways with them so that I won’t be in the way for the future plans of SOILWORK. However, since I’m not gonna be on the road (at least for a while), I will now be able to continue with my songwriting and producing at another level.
