Solstafir Say Palmason Left Due To 'Deep Personal Conflict'

(Prog) Solstafir have responded to former drummer Gummi Palmason's claims over his departure from the band. This week he accused the Icelandic outfit of dismissing him in January without warning, then ordering him to keep quiet if he wanted them to consider changing their minds.

He also claimed frontman Addi Tryggvason tried to register the band's name behind his colleagues' back after his dismissal. Now Solstafir say in a statement: "There are always two sides to every story. No one knows the whole story other than those directly involved.

"As is the case in any relationship, all parties play their roles in creating and ending it. Both parties have their versions, and often at times, the point gets lost along the way, buried in emotions.

"The bottom line is, Gummi is no longer in the band, because of a deep personal conflict that involves all three remaining members and cannot be solved. He is well aware of this."

The band say that they're sorry over taking so long to comment, and add: "Despite what we have read that appears to have been written in anger, bitterness, and seemingly spite, we continue to hold no ill will and sincerely want to thank him for all of his hard work and being such a huge part of the band for all these years." here.
