Danish rock giants Volbeat have announced the departure of guitarist Rob Caggiano. For their upcoming live shows, Flemming C. Lund (The Arcane Order) will be taking over for Rob. In a statement release today, June 5th, the band released the following statement:
“After ten incredible years we must sadly announce that Volbeat and Rob Caggiano have parted ways. During our time together we’ve traveled the world sharing great experiences and released four albums that we are immensely proud of, and we wouldn’t change a moment of it.
We wish our brother Rob all the best with everything he does in the future (we know it’s going to be great)!
Filling those shoes on stage will be a herculean task, but our good friend Flemming C. Lund (The Arcane Order) will be jumping in to handle lead guitar on our 2023 shows.
Thank you to all of our incredible fans for their support, and more importantly, thank you to Rob for ten amazing years.
– Michael, Jon and Kaspar”
Caggiano joined the band in 2013 and contributed to Volbeat’s albums “Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies,” “Seal the Deal & Let’s Boogie,” “Rewind, Replay, Rebound” and “Servant of the Mind.”
