Captain Black Beard part ways with singer yet announce tour
Swedish rockers Captain Black Beard have parted ways with their singer Sakaria Björklund but have secured a small tour of Finland supporting former Europe guitarist Kee Marcello.
The group’s announcement via its Facebook page states:
“CAPTAIN BLACK BEARD part ways with singer and announce tour!
Captain Black Beard and singer Sakaria Björklund have mutually decided to part ways. Saki has recently become a father and obviously needs to make that his number one priority. With Saki‘s blessing the band will continue and try to find a replacement.

On these dates we’ve enlisted two great substitute singers! From the band Reach (and known from the TV show “Idol”); Ludvig Turner and from Mother Kasabian; Gidon Tannenbaum.

Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Captain Black Beard‘s last studio album: “It’s A Mouthful is Captain Black Beard’s third album, so they clearly have a following in and around the clubs of Stockholm. The Swedish band has had some success as well touring the European festival circuit and venues from Scandinavia to the UK. I don’t like to give bands negative reviews for many reasons, but mostly because they work their asses off to be the best they can be. And good for them. Bands don’t need some reviewer to undermine them. With that caveat out of the way, I am free to say that I’m less than impressed with Captain Black Beard. The music is bland and superficial, and on the poppy side of hard rock.”
