Paradise Lost tour without drummer Erlandsson

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!”
