VOLBEAT has officially parted ways with guitarist Rob Caggiano
Earlier today, the band released the following statement via their official social media: “After ten incredible years we must sadly announce that VOLBEAT and Rob Caggiano have parted ways. During our time together we’ve traveled the world sharing great experiences and released four albums that we are immensely proud of, and we wouldn’t change a moment of it.
“We wish our brother Rob all the best with everything he does in the future (we know it’s going to be great)!
“Filling those shoes on stage will be a herculean task, but our good friend Flemming C. Lund (THE ARCANE ORDER) will be jumping in to handle lead guitar on our 2023 shows.
“Thank you to all of our incredible fans for their support, and more importantly, thank you to Rob for ten amazing years.”
Caggiano played on VOLBEAT‘s last four studio albums, being 2013’s “Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies”, 2016’s “Seal the Deal & Let’s Boogie”, 2019’s “Rewind, Replay, Rebound” and 2021’s “Servant Of The Mind“.
Rob previously played with ANTHRAX as their lead guitarist commencing in 2001, playing on the albums “We’ve Come For You All” and “The Greater Of Two Evils”. Caggiano performed with the band during their 2010-2011 “Big Four” tour alongside SLAYER, MEGADETH and METALLICA, and also played on and produced ANTHRAX‘s 2011 LP “Worship Music”.
