KORPIKLAANI recently parted ways with longtime violinist Jaakko “Hittavainen” Lemmetty and replaced him with “a young prodigy” by the name of Teemu Eerola. According to a press release, “There is a mutual understanding between [Hittavainen] and the rest of the band and there is no big drama involved. His personal health issues made the constant touring and recording impossible.”

Eerola will make his live debut with KORPIKLAANI on September 24 in Rotterdam, Holland.

KORPIKLAANI‘s latest album, “Ukon Wacka”, was released in North America on February 25 via Nuclear Blast Records.
