Soilwork Replace Peter Wichers

06/29/2012
.
Soilwork have tapped Night Flight Orchestra's David Andersson to replace founding guitarist Peter Wichers.

"We're super stoked to have David with us", said vocalist Björn "Speed" Strid. "He's a blast to be around and a kick ass guitarist. Plus, we've known him for so many years, from all the touring together, we just know he's a perfect fit for us." Andersson has toured on and off with Soilwork since 2006, and most recently during the 2011 festival season in support of the band's acclaimed eighth album "The Panic Broadcast."

Regarding the recently announced split with Wichers, who first left the band in 2005 only to return four years later, Speed commented: "We just had to do this. It's in the best interest of both him and us. Soilwork was born to be out there, tearing up the stage. Peter's been unable to commit to the kind of touring we need to do and it's time for us to move on. David's played with us for so long, he's really grown into the band. It feels natural, like a seamless transition. We're thankful for everything Peter has contributed to Soilwork over the years and we sincerely wish him the best."

Soilwork are currently in the process of writing new music for their ninth album, "The Living Infinite." "We're working our asses off to put this record together," said Strid. "It's gonna be fantastic, the songs and ideas are flowing like crazy! As far as the musical direction goes, there's tons of crushing, high energy, in-your-face metal. Trust me, we're not about to go mellow anytime soon!"
