Volbeat Say Goodbye to Guitarist Thomas Bredhal


Shortly after announcing their participation in the 2012 Gigantour with Megadeth, Motorhead and Lacuna Coil, Volbeat have announced that they’ve parted ways with guitarist Thomas Bredhal.

The band announced the break up on their website comparing being in a band to being in a marriage with lots of ups and downs along the way. In the band’s own words, “At times you can work it out and sometimes you need to go separate ways.”

There doesn’t seem to be any hard feelings involved, with the band thanking Bredhal for his time spent with them: “We want to thank him for the work he has put in for Volbeat and we wish him all the best in the future,” continues the statement.

So what does the  future look like for Volbeat? The band will move forward with their touring schedule as a trio and possibly add a replacement guitarist at some point. The band summed it up, saying, “Right now we’ll take a well deserved break and we will be back on the road in January.”
