Sólstafir announce different tour-drummer
SÓLSTAFIR have just announced that their regular drummer, Guðmundur "Gummi" Óli Pálmason, will not be performing during their upcoming shows. He will be replaced by Karl Petur Smith during this period.
The Icelanders comment: "Today we're in Milton Keynes ready to kick off the second leg of our European tour. It is with great sadness that we need to report to you that Gummi will not be joining us on this tour due to personal reasons. We'd prefer to leave it at that and ask that you please respect our privacy in this matter and refrain from all questions, speculations and internet rumors. We will follow up when the time is right, but for now, we're very excited to have a brilliant drummer by the name of Karl Petur Smith joining us for these shows. His extensive musical background includes playing with such acts as Rusty Anderson, Jason Falkner and Bubbi Morthens. Can't wait to see all of your faces out there!"
Please note that SÓLSTAFIR will not answer any questions regarding this topic at all!
On further news, SÓLSTAFIR have already reported sold out shows at Paris' Nouveau Casino in France on the 27th of January and in Nantes a day later as well as in Weinheim, Germany. Tickets are running low in other places as well. We strongly recommend an early ticket purchase.
