As previously reported, their long time bass player, Andreas Passmark has had a break from all live performances, video shoots and other activities during 2016. But Andreas has made the decision to not return to Narnia. “As much as this is sad news for everyone, we respect his decision and hereby thank him for his many years of thundering service in the band. Best of luck for the future Andreas, and be blessed!” Says Narnia. Passmark‘s statement can be found here.
Last month, the band did a small tour through Europe, with on bass Jonathan Samuelsson (ex SafeMode). He is also pictured on the South American tour poster below.
During the years Narnia has been established as one of the leading forces in melodic, neoclassical metal, with a strong reputation of being a great live act that always delivers. And so it continues.. The fans are asking for more and the band is hungrier than ever!
