Hardcore/Crossover legends PRO-PAIN have announced the departure of long time friend and lead guitarist Tom Klimchuck

“It is with great sadness that we bring to you (the fans) the following news: Due to unexpected circumstances regarding some potentially serious health issues, our long time lead guitarist and dear friend Tom Klimchuck will unfortunately have to put his musical endeavors on ahold for at least the foreseeable future. Although we all wanted so much for Tom to be able to participate in the 20 Year Anniversary tours, we collectively decided that it was too risky and that his health and family should take precedent. Thankfully, (with Tom’s blessing) we have found a replacement in Adam Phillips (Indorphine) and so the tours will move forward as planned. The fans can expect a great show, as we have quite an ambitious set list lined up for them. A personal statement from Tom to the fans can be expected shortly. In the meantime, we welcome Adam aboard and we wish Tom a speedy and full recovery. Thank you all for your support during this difficult time and transition, and special thanks to Tom for his many years of flawless commitment to our beloved band (this tour’s for you). We hope to see you all at the gigs!!”

- PRO-PAIN

 

Tom posted the following statement earlier today:

“Although thoroughly saddened by the realization that my time in Pro-Pain is at its end, I look back with an overwhelming sense of gratitude and pride. The band has been an absolute blessing to me. It has provided a platform with which to fight the good fight, and bring inspiration through commonality to people all around the world. All the while offering countless, magical experiences that most can only dream of. I owe a massive “Thank you!” to Gary, Marshall, Ricky, and Adam, as well as all previous members, and crew past and present; my brothers. It has been a privilege sharing the stage, and sharing so many incredible times with you all. These are the fabric of our souls, and you are all irreversibly woven into mine. A very special “Thank you.” goes out to all the Pro-Pain fans. It is a powerful thing to watch a large group of people, seemingly strangers to one another, find common ground, and even inspiration in something I have put my heart and soul into. This is the show you have given me as I’ve looked out from the stage to all of you, and the gift you have given me that I will have forever. I am eternally grateful.”

- Tom Klimchuck

 

To celebrate their 20th Anniversary, PRO-PAIN will play their classic debut album “FOUL TASTE OF FREEDOM” live and in it’s entirety along with many other favorites.
