Swedish melodic death metallers DEALS DEATH have parted ways with their bassist of the past three years, Fredrik Ljung.Comments the band: "There are times when everything is great, there are times when everything is bad. And there are times when different paths are chosen and you simply drift apart. Things like these are never easily decided and we thank our friend and bandmate for three awesome years and wish you a brilliant future." Adds Fredrik: "Dear friends and fans! As you now know, I have left the band. We saw it as the only way to go and I want to thank everyone who has gotten me and DEALS DEATH to the point where we are at today. "There are many reasons for my goodbye but I personally feel that Im not on the same wavelength as the present band. And when you play in a band such as DEALS DEATH. you have to be able to give it your all! "My last contribution with DEALS DEATH is recorded and will be heard on the new album and I'm sure you'll like it. "I will continue with my other projects and have no intention to quit making music whatsoever. I would also like to thank DEALS DEATH for this wonderful time and great memories!" Earlier this year, DEALS DEATH completed recording its third full-length album at Studio Abyss in Sweden for a late 2013 release via Spinefarm Records. The new CD is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed "Elite", which came out in 2012 via Spinefarm.
