Norwegian black metallers Kampfar have announced that Bassist Jon Bakker will be forced to sit out their upcoming European tour due to undisclosed family issues.. Enre Moe, from Trail Of Fears, will act as Bakker’s replacement.

The band issues a statement regarding Bakker and his tour replacement, “Initially we were reluctant to perform without his presence, but we are lucky to have a solid replacement lined up. [Endre Moe, known from TRAIL OF TEARS,] is an old friend and has been on the road with us many times before. The step up to bass duties is a natural one, and after a weekend of intense rehearsing we’re happy to say that this solution will be a very good one.”
