HateSphere Lineup Changes As They Launch North American Tour
Guitarist Peter "Pepe" Hansen comments: "This is indeed a new and exciting chapter for Hatesphere. After touring Europe for more than 7 years, we finally have the chance to visit The States. It is a huge opportunity for us and we look forward to play for our U.S. fans! A huge thank you to the guys in The Black Dahlia Murder, who were kind enough to invite us! Unfortunately, we have to cancel the European tour with Hypocrisy due to our change of drummer and personal reasons. However, it's a pleasure to have Mike behind the drums. We've known him for several years, and he wanted to play fast for a long time and now it's finally happening so obviously we're happy! We promise to return both during the summer at the festivals and in the autumn. Last but not least, we're happy to announce that Rune Walther from Dream Fire Agency will be taking care of the business as our new manager."
Drummer Mike Park comments: I've always been a big fan of Hatesphere and I've known the guys for a long time so it was quite natural to take over from Dennis. The opportunity came as an extension of my break with Mercenary and I feel great sitting behind the drums in a hard-hitting and professional band as Hatesphere. I've already played my first three concerts with the guys and it was fantastic. The energy, the drive and comradeship is exceptional - just as it should be. Now I look forward to show the Hatesphere banner in the U.S!"
