Swedish melodic death metal band AT THE GATES have split with their guitarist of the past five years, Jonas Stålhammar.
Stålhammar joined AT THE GATES in September 2017 as the replacement for co-founding guitarist Anders Björler, who left the band earlier that year.
Over the weekend (Saturday, July 23), AT THE GATES issued the following statement via social media: “AT THE GATES have chosen to part ways with guitar player Jonas Stålhammar. We are currently working to find a replacement for the upcoming shows.”
AT THE GATES are set to embark on a special “Slaughter Of The Soul” North American tour this summer. The run was originally planned for the 25th anniversary of “Slaughter Of The Soul” in 2020, however the COVID-19 pandemic forced the band to postpone.
