Soilwork guitarist David Andersson has died. The band confirmed his passing on their official Facebook page. He was just 47 years old.

“We are deeply saddened today, as we bring the terrible news of David Andersson’s passing,” the band said in a statement. “He was one of a kind and a brilliant man in so many ways. He was our guitarist for more than 10 years and had a big impact on Soilwork’s musical journey forward. Sadly, alcohol and mental illness took you away from us. We will miss him dearly and will continue to carry the musical legacy that he was a part of. Our deepest condolences go out to his family. Forever grateful for the time we spent with you and all the good laughs. Thank you Dr. Dave. See you on the other side. We encourage everyone to respect the privacy of David’s family and friends in these tragic times.”

Soilwork just released their new album Övergivenheten on August 19 via Nuclear Blast. The record peaked at No. 29 on the Swedish Albums Chart. It is the band’s twelfth studio LP and now the last to feature the guitar work of David Andersson.
