Update: The band has confirmed Peter’s departure. It looks like it’s official.
Peter Dolving, singer of The Haunted, has posted on his Facebook page that he is officially leaving the band. Since I’m so shocked to see this (the combination of his voice and the band’s music still blows me away), I’m going to have wait until I see an official press release before I believe it.
Dolving, “I am officially quitting The Haunted. After years of working with the band, I am out. I have had it. I will NOT answer questions to why. It’s no one elses[sic] business. Thank you very much. I am looking forward to seeing you people at other shows with other projects.”
Like I say, pure shock on my end. As much as I want to wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors, I’m beyond sad to see him go.
