This post was prepared to pay tribute and express happiness over the latest release and yet another fantastic album of Soilwork, ‘Övergivenheten’ (‘abandonment’/Nuclear Blast 2022). The devastating news on David Anderssons passing at only 47, on Sept. 14, 2022, reached us and we now lack words to express how much this hurts. We would like to say ‘thank you, David’ for all the happy moments you together with The Night Flight Orchestra and Soilwork has created for many people and for us personally. We would also like to send our deepest condolences to David’s family, friends and fellow band members. As have been announced by The Night Flight Orchestra (e.g. via Bandsintown, Sept. 17, 2022) ‘The legacy continues…’ and the planned mini European tour in Nov. ‘Death to false AOR’ will take place. We will take up the recommendation ‘to join the band in celebrating David’s life and music and dance the night away’. When the next gig stop is Helsingborg or Malmö we will be there. Vila i frid, David! / Rest In Peace!
David Andersson, thank you!
