Civil War vocalist Patrik Johansson has announced his departure from the band. Patrik had this to say about his sudden departure:
Okay, to avoid misunderstandings: I have left Civil War. They need to tour more and I am not the guy for that due to my work and family situation.
“I have given them some of my best songs and almost five years of my life. I love them, but all things have an end.
“I wish that they can get a new singer that can carry on my legacy and the spirit of Civil War.
“If no new singer can be found in time, I will, of course, do the booked shows if they want.
“I will now focus on Astral Doors and perhaps more important to make a follow-up to Lion’s Share’s epic ‘Dark Hours’!!”
Civil War originally formed in Falun, Sweden in 2012 by former members of Sabaton. Patrik had been a part of the band since its creation.
