Norway's Turbonegro have announced the departure of founding guitarist Rune Rebellion. The band explained:

Now Rune Rebellion, one of Turbonegro's founders, has decided to leave the band. He will not leave the organisation however, and will continue in his instrumental role in running the band's label, Scandinavian Leather Recordings, as well as managing a lot of the touring business. These tasks have been largely his responsibility also thus far, and the workload of the combined roles as on–stage rebel and behind–the–scenes organizer was what made it necessary to leave the band.

The band issued Retox earlier this year.
