Metalband Arch Enemy krijgt nieuwe gitarist


Metal-iconen Arch Enemy zijn er trots op aan te kondigen dat gitaarlegende Jeff Loomis (ex-Nevermore) hen gaat vergezellen op hun komende Europese toer die 26 november begint, EN alle nog te plannen concerten in 2015.

Jeff Loomis zegt: “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!”

Na een geweldige jaar van intensief toeren vanwege het album War Eternal, neemt Arch Enemy afscheid van hun huidige gitarist Nick Cordle: “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.”

Amerikaanse fans krijgen voor de resterende Amerikaanse toer een speciale reünie te zien van Arch Enemy met Christopher Amott, de broer van Michael Amott, de oprichter van Arch Enenmy.

Michael Amott: “We all wish Nick the very best in his new endeavors and we are sure that you will hear much more from him. We’re also super grateful to my brother Christopher for stepping in to finish the current American tour!” “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 long time 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!”
