It’s hard to leave what has become my second family, but now it’s time for me to take care and spend more time with the most important people in my life – my wife and my three daughters.
I wish my friends in the band, the whole crew and everyone that’s working for In Flames the very best in the future.
To all fans around the world, I want to say thank you for all the support you have shown during my years in the band’.
