Sabaton Announce Thobbe Englund's Replacement


(Metal Hammer) Sabaton have bid farewell to outgoing guitarist Thobbe Englund and officially welcomed his replacement Tommy Johansson. Englund played his last show with the band at their Sabaton Open Air festival in Sweden at the weekend. Earlier this month it was revealed Englund was leaving due to the band's hectic touring schedule.

Now Sabaton have announced former Golden Resurrection and ReinXeed man Johansson as his replacement. Sabaton say: "Thank you Thobbe, welcome Tommy.

"Our guitar player Thobbe did his final concert with us on last Saturday's very emotional show at the Sabaton Open Air festival. Celebrating the release of our new album while saying goodbye to a great friend is lots of mixed feelings. But the future is bright since this was not nearly our last stand. From now on, you will see Tommy Johansson playing guitars with Sabaton and we all look forward to see you on the road." Read more here.
