That’s right, kids.
Jeff Loomis, who was once in Nevermore, is now in Arch Enemy.
Jeff replaces guitarist Nick Cordle.
Loomis will make his live debut with Arch Enemy on the band’s upcoming European tour, which kicks off November 26.
This addition to the band could end up being really, really interesting.
We shall see.
Says Loomis states:
“I’m very excited to be playing with Arch Enemy. Michael Amott and I have stayed in contact over the years since we toured together when I was playing in Nevermore. Not only do I admire his guitar playing and songwriting, but I also consider him a close friend. To be able to share the stage with Michael, Sharlee, Daniel and Alissa is something I’m really looking forward to. 2015 is going to be a great year… See you all on tour!”
“With ‘War Eternal’ I believe we wrote an album together which will stand the test of time, and I wish them well for the future.”
At present, Christopher Amott, Michael’s brother, has temporarily rejoined the band for the remainder of their American headlining tour, in Nick’s place.
Says Michael Amott:
“The prospect of working with Jeff Loomis moving forward is truly awesome!
“Jeff Loomis is one of the best guitar players in the metal world, in my opinion, as well as being a longtime friend. I look forward to tearing it up on stages around the world together as we continue on the ‘War Eternal’ touring cycle throughout all next year and beyond!”
