Sweden's THE CROWN have parted ways with vocalist Tomas Lindberg (ex-AT THE GATES) due to personal differences. A message on the group's official web site states simply that "any questions to this statement will be answered with 'no comment'."Lindberg joined THE CROWN in March 2001 as the replacement for Johan Lindstrand, who left the group due to his strong distaste for the touring lifestyle. Tomas appeared on THE CROWN's most recent CD, Crowned In Terror, which was released through Metal Blade Records in April. THE CROWN's last show with Lindberg took place last Friday, May 31st, at The Shrine in Stockholm, where the group shared the stage with THE HAUNTED and NECROPHOBIC. It is not presently clear if the band will go ahead with their next scheduled live appearance, which is due to take place at the Tuska Metal Festival in Helsinki, Finland on July 13th.
