Finnish folk metal group Korpiklaani have made their first lineup change since 2005.

Jaako ‘Hittavainen’ Lemmetty has been with the band since it’s inception in 2003 and the decision to leave has been a mutual one between Hittavainen and the rest of the group as his personal health issues have made constant touring and recording impossible.

The violinist has been replaced by Teemu Eerola who has been rehearsing hard with the band in preparation for some upcoming shows in Rotterdam on September 24, and in Finland on October 6 in Pori and Helsinki later that month. The band will then head to North America to begin their 24 date tour on November 23.
