Ensiferum Part Ways With Netta Skog, Announce European Tour With Ex Deo

Ensiferum have parted ways with accordionist Netta Skog. She said decided to leave so she could “move on and focus on other things in [her] life.”

The band said the following:

“In life, there are times when you have to take a look in the mirror and be totally honest with yourself and those around you. Those moments usually culminate in big decisions. Today, that moment has arrived for Ensiferum as our dear friend Netta Skog will no longer be a member of Ensiferum.

There is no drama here. Sometimes, time schedules overlap and priorities change meaning they no longer match with the people who you are working with. In these situations, it’s better for everyone to take your separate paths and to move on.

We want to thank Netta for all the great times on the road and in the studio and we wish her all the best on her new journey.”

Skog added:

“I’ve gotten to spend amazing times with great people and I could not be more grateful for what I have experienced. So many great memories with one of the coolest band ever! But unfortunately now it is time for me to move on and focus on other things in my life at the moment and head into new adventures. Thank you all for your great support on the road and I wish nothing but the best for the boys in the band! See you somewhere in the future! Love you all!”

The band then concluded:

“At the moment we are not looking for a replacement and we will inform more about our future plans soon. All confirmed shows will happen as planned and more gigs will be announced soon.”
