Atlas Losing Grip Changes Singers, Announces Tour

STOCKHOLM, Sweden (CelebrityAccess) — Swedish punk/hardcore outfit Atlas Losing Grip has announced that they have parted ways with their lead singer Rodrigo Alfaro just ahead of an upcoming European tour.

Alfaro, a former Satanic Surfers alum, joined the band in 2009 and participated in two of their albums; "Watching the Horizon" in 2009 and "State of Unrest" in 2011. In a post on the band's Facebook page, the band said that they made the decision to part ways with Alfaro "after long discussions back and forth about touring schedules, commitment and the fact that we see the band differently and live different lives, which determines how much one can be on tour or not."

"It has been a great couple of years with Rodrigo in the band, the best years for the band so far, and we thank him for his contributions, dedication and talent. But there is no stopping us, so we look to the horizon for future adventures, and don't be afraid, the magic and unstoppable machinery that is ALG will continue – not only like before, but in a higher gear with the release of "Currents", our biggest and most majestic album to date," a spokesperson for the band added.

Niklas Olsson, vocalist and founder of the black metal band Shining will be stepping in to replace Alfaro.

Atlas Losing Grip's tour kicks off in January in Berlin and runs until late February. Their next studio album "Currents" is due in January, 2015.
