  Guitarist Johan Hallgren from “Pain of Salvation” has decided to quit the band after being part of it for 13 years in order to focus on wife,daughter and child-to-come. Although he will not be leaving music together, Johan Hallgren has been the x-factor of the band. The news also means that the band’s upcoming tour with Opeth in November will be his last. 


I’m leaving the band with both joy and sadness. I need to stay close to my daughter and my child-to-come, they will be my greatest concern along with my wife. I will miss everyone I’ve met during the years, and the band will continue to have a warm place in my heart. So finally, treat yourself and all that surrounds you with respect, and stay with POS – the greatest band on the planet! Sorry if I disappoint you, I miss you already!” – said Johan.
