The band’s Facebook page seems to indicate they’ve found a replacement for Jesper Strömblad, who quit the band more than a year ago to seek continued treatment for alcoholism. Bummer for him.
The band now lists Niclas Engelin as its new guitarist in its roster of current members. Engelin is a former member of Gardenian.
I’m psyched to hear that these dudes have finally found a fit for this vacancy, and can’t wait to hear the dude’s contributions both from the stage and the studio.
At present, the band is planning on releasing a new album tentatively titled Sounds of a Playground Fading sometime in the next few months.
That’s rad. The band’s tenth album will be releasing through Good Fight Music.
“We are very happy with the result,” the band has said of the new disc. Works for me!
