Wie Prophecy Production bestätigen, scheint Jonas aka B, seines Zeichens treibende Kraft hinter Lifelover in der Nacht vom 09. auf den 10. September verstorben zu sein.
Hier das Statement:
As you can read about the death of Lifelover’s B/Jonas everywhere on the web at the moment, just a short statement from us about this here: The Prophecy team is shocked about this news and very concerned. At the moment we are waiting for a callback of ( ) / Kim Carlsson to get certainty and more information about what happened in the night of September 9th. What a weird Monday morning…
Inzwischen ist von Kim aka () ein offizielles Statement erschienen, welches das Ende von Lifelover verkündet:
On Friday morning, September 9th, B didn’t wake up from his sleep. He didn’t take his own life nor was he victim of any apparent action. The authorities in charge are still examinating his body to find the exact cause of death.
We, the remaining members of Lifelover have decided to lay the band to rest. This would be the only right thing to do considering B was the main composer of Lifelover.
Therefore, we won’t be performing at our coming, planned shows. We are very sorry and hope that all of the fans that had been looking forward to seeing Lifelover play live will understand. The concerts in Belgium and Holland were the last concerts of Lifelover. We want to thank everybody that was present and helped out, especially Rob “Svograth” Polon of Monads and the members of IXXI.
These last days have been very hard for us and everybody that knew B. We want to thank all of our fans for being so respectful, dedicated and understanding and, most of all, for supporting Lifelover during all these years.
/Kim, Henrik, Felix, Johan, Rickard and Kral
Zusätzlich noch ein Statement zum Autumn Depression Festival:
I made this very clear from the beginning and I will mention it again, Lifelover will NOT be performing. The last performance with Lifelover was on a day most fitting for the last show. However as Hypothermia is present on this evening and the other members of Lifelover are not only fans but friends of Hypothermia as well as several friends and collaborators from Belgium being there we all intend to put together a hell of a tribute-show to our friend that won’t disappoint anyone going to this event! Especially considering what kind of music it is and you can ask anyone who witnessed our collaboration in tribute to Jonas before the last show in Rotterdam, many claiming to never have been as moved by a performance. Unfortunately it was on a sunday and they had to stop any higher soundlevels quite early so it was only possible to do a very short version of an otherwise much longer song which consists of riffs I’ve previously shown Jonas which he has adored so for my brother/friend I’m setting up something nothing less than the most powerful, emotional and intense performance anyone could dream of.
Lifelover won’t ever perform live again but members from the now dead Lifelover will be there in honour of our friend and do a performance, that is a big difference in words but not in action!
Kim, on behalf of Lifelover
