KVELERTAK Has A New Frontman, New Album In 2019
Kvelertak vocalist Erlend Hjelvik announced yesterday that he was leaving the band and would not perform with them at their coming festival dates. At the time Kvelertak did not issue a statement of their own, but it seems like they've known about this situation for a while now.
According to the band themselves, they've already got a new vocalist that they'll premiere this Friday at their Fjellparkfestivalen show. They're also preparing a brand new album for 2019.
KVELERTAK WITH NEW VOCALIST, NEW ALBUM IN THE PIPELINE
We have known for a while that Erlend has planned to step down, so we have had the necessary time to plan the way going forward and also find a new vocalist for Kvelertak.
The original plan was to finish up the festival season with Erlend, but as Erlend is not able to do so, we are therefore proudly announcing our newest member at the upcoming show Friday, July 20th, at Fjellparken, Norway.
We would like to thank Erlend Hjelvik for his contribution to the band, and wish him all the best for the future.
-Vidar, Maciek, Bjarte, Marvin, Kjetil
Kvelertak is currently working on their next album, intended for release in 2019.
Any guesses on the new guy? It's not like Kvelertak is some small band.
