Nightwish vocalist Floor Jansen and Sabaton drummer Hannes Van Dahl welcomed their first child, Freja on March 15. While Nightwish are taking an obvious break on the road, Van Dahl is sitting out for the remainder of Sabaton’s European dates to spend time with his new family. Filling in for him for the Europe dates will be Daniel Sjögren (Twilight Force, Bloodbound). As far as Sabaton’s North American tour, we do not know if Van Dahl will be joining.
Jansen announced the following on her Facebook:
“In perfect health our daughter Freja was born on the 15th of March. We are very happy parents! Thank you for your kind support coming in from all over the world during this time! Hannes, Floor & Freja.”
