Sonic Syndicate bassist Karin Axelsson has departed from the group to focus on her family. Taking over will be Michel Bärzén (Degradead). Says Karin: “Dear friends,

As most of you know by now I haven’t been touring with my boys in Sonic for a while. Sonic Syndicate has been my family and my life for many years and I’ve met so many great people and experienced things I never thought I would.

I’ve had the time of my life, so many of my dreams have come true in so many ways but sometimes you have to make hard choices in life and it’s time for me to move on because I am in a place where I need to focus on my family and private life, I hope you understand my decision. I would like to thank all you guys who came out to our shows, for your endless love and support, it has meant so much to me and the guys that we could never express in words how we feel.

Before I officially go and start my new life, I’d like to ask you one more thing. Please take care of the boys, my brothers, because I love them with all of my heart and although we’ll keep contact and see each other from time to time I will truly miss them and the music we’ve made together.
So, with everything above said and done, I would like to officially introduce Miche to the Sonic Syndicate family. What I ask from you guys is to please open your hearts for this great guy who’s an awesome bass player and give him a warm welcome.

With all my love”
