Dark Tranquillity guitarist quits band

Swedish melodic death metal outfit Dark Tranquillity has announced the departure of guitarist and original member Martin Henriksson. According to the band, Henriksson recently left the band "sadly but amicably." Meanwhile, Henriksson has issued this statement:
"I recently quit the band. I feel I have lost the passion for playing music, and Dark Tranquillity deserves to have members that are 100% committed to the art. Therefore I decided it's in everyone's best interest to step aside and leave the band with the best possible ability to grow and get even stronger. I've had 26 years filled with wonderful memories and we made a lot of great music together, and for that I'm forever grateful. Thanks to all the fans, crew and other people involved that supported Dark Tranquillity through the years!"
