SOILWORK guitarist David Anderrson has died at the age of 47. The band announced his passing on social media.

They wrote: “We are deeply saddened today, as we bring the terrible news of David Andersson‘s passing. He was one of a kind and a brilliant man in so many ways. He was our guitarist for more than 10 years and had a big impact on SOILWORK‘s musical journey forward. Sadly alcohol and mental illness took you away from us. We will miss him dearly and will continue to carry the musical legacy that he was a part of. Our deepest condolences goes out to his family. Forever grateful for the time we spent with you and all the good laughs. Thank you Dr. Dave. See you on the other side.

“We encourage everyone to respect the privacy of David‘s family and friends in these tragic times.”

Andersson played with SOILWORK between 2012 and 2022, with his most recent effort being the band’s latest record Övergivenheten.
