Jani Liimatainen is out of Insomnium

Through a statement published on social networks, Insomnium has made official the departure of guitarist Jani Liimatainen due to his alleged disinterest in the band.

“Many of you have asked about the whereabouts of Jani Liimatainen and his status within the band. The answer is strangely simple: For a long time, we didn't know where he was and we couldn't contact him by any means.

The reason we didn't make this public was because we still hadn't lost hope. Of course, Jani has been a close friend and valued member of the band for many years. We wanted to give him the opportunity to resolve the situation or something less give a statement to the fans.

Unfortunately, it is now evident that Jani and the other members of Insomnium have different priorities. Therefore, we have agreed to separate our paths and the band will continue with four members. We wish him the best for the future and thank him for the years he spent with Insomnium.”
