Tyr have just posted the following update regarding the departure of their longtime drummer:
"We regret to inform you that Kári Streymoy and the rest of the band have parted ways.
"Kári suffered a back injury in 2008, and since then he has had some issues with his drumming. That is the main reason that the co-operation has been problematic for some time now, and we finally decided to part ways.
"We want to thank Kári for his time in the band. It's been great to have you with us, we wish you the best of luck in the future and we hope you recover fully some day.
"More details to follow on who we got to fill in for Kári in studio. I think most of you are in for a big surprise.
