KYPCK's line-up is going through some changes, as K. H. M. Hiilesmaa steps down from the drums. It is however very possible that he will produce KYPCK's albums in the future as well. Hiilesmaa, now concentrating on his studio/producing work, comments:

"Making albums and for example touring takes a lot of time, so I had to make a very painful decision and leave KYPCK's drum stool for someone else. I still strongly believe that the band will bathe in rubles already in the near future."

Hiilesmaa's replacement has already been chosen and the name of him is A. K. Karihtala, previously known from for example Charon. At the same time, live guitarist S. Kukkohovi has been cemented into the band as a permanent member. The band is already writing new material.
