Paradise Lost drummer Adrian Erlandsson will sit out the band’s European tour due to other commitments.
He’s busy with At The Gates and The Haunted, so he’ll be replaced by Finnish drummer Waltteri Vayrynen for the run of shows.
Vayrynen says: “No words can explain how excited, grateful and honoured I am to do all these shows with Paradise Lost. The band has been one of my first and biggest influences ever since I was a little kid. It’s gonna be one hell of a year!”
The band have just begun live activities in support of 14th album The Plague Within, to be launched on June 1 via Century Media. The tour includes eight British dates:
Sep 27: Dublin Academy
Sep 28: Belfast Limelight
Sep 30: Manchester Academy 2
Oct 01: Glasgow Garage
Oct 03: Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall
Oct 04: London Koko
Nov 12: Liverpool O2 Academy
Nov 13: Nottingham Rock City
