Swedish death metal band Grave has posted the following message on its official site:
"After careful consideration our drummer Pelle (Ekegren) has decided to leave the band due to personal reasons and also the increase of touring that we will engage in the coming months and hopefully years to come.
Pelle has been a very important part of the band and has played a big part in GRAVE's sound on the albums he appeared on. We wish him all the best with his other projects and life in general.
For the upcoming tours we have drafted Ronnie Bergerståhl (ex- Bastards, Julie Laughs Nomore, Amaran and Centinex). Rehearsals are going great and we welcome Ronnie in the band.
His first live appearance with GRAVE will be when we kick off the first leg of the 2006 US tour at September 30.
