Swedish skate punks Atlas Losing Grip have announced that their vocalist Rodrigo Alfaro is no longer in the band, and that he was replaced by Niklas Olsson a few weeks ago. You can read a statement from the band below.
In conjunction with this news, the band has also announced their “Currents World Tour,” where the band will be touring Europe to support their upcoming album Currents. You can check out these tour dates, along with a preview of a new song called “Sinking Ship,” below as well.

The band’s last full-length album State of Unrest was released back in 2011 through Black Star Foundation.
“Rodrigo is no longer a part of ALG since a couple of weeks back. We decided to part ways after long discussions back and forth about touring schedules, commitment and the fact that we see the band differently and live different lives, which determines how much one can be on tour or not. We will not make a big fuss out of this. It has been a great couple of years with Rodrigo in the band, the best years for the band so far, and we thank him for his contributions, dedication and talent. But there is no stopping us, so we look to the horizon for future adventures, and don’t be afraid, the magic and unstoppable machinery that is ALG will continue – not only like before, but in a higher gear with the release of “Currents”, our biggest and most majestic album to date. Now we are proud to announce that ATLAS LOSING GRIP have found a new singer with a great voice and true passion for what we do. He will fit perfectly for our music.”
