“However sad it is to not have Ax in the band anymore, we’re not in a position to linger on anything that is going to hold us back, “said Åkerfeldt at the time. “We need to soldier on. Needless to say, we’re incredibly thankful that Sami is helping us out, making this tour possible at all. On top of that, he’s quite outstanding, really !. “
“All of us wish the best for Ax in all and any of his future endeavors. He has been an incredibly important part of the band for many years now, and we’re all heartbroken it did not work out in the end. But that’s life, I guess…. “
