Long time Týr guitarist Terji Skibenæs has quit the band – a replacement has been named already. Details below.

Terji’s statement:

This is it. I am now officially leaving the band TÝR after 17 years. After months of thinking this through carefully, I’ve finally come to the decision that it’s time for me to quit.

The reason is very simple: I have no desire whatsoever to play in TÝR anymore.

There’s no drama or anything going on between me and the others. It’s just me not having any joy to play the music in the style of TÝR anymore.

I want to thank Heri Joensen and Gunnar Thomsen for the all the time we had and I wish TÝR all the best in the future.

And thanks to all the fans for the support through the years. My last show with Týr will be at Sabaton open air in August.  More news to follow soon about my future projects.


Attila Vörös from Hungary will be take Terji’s place:

After the end of a very successful World Tour off Satyricon’s latest record Deep Calleth Upon Deep the time has come for me to call it for a change and look for new adventures with my friends at Týr. We’ll be hitting the road together in South America in October/2018.

Cya guyz out there! \,,/
