The Swedish masters of doom and melancholy OCTOBER TIDE have issued the following statement:
“As you might have noticed we have showed up with different members on many of the shows lately and the reason for that is FOUR newborn babies produced within one year. Since the effect of humping has a time consuming aftermath we hereby make the following statement:
Vocalist Tobias Netzell and bassist Pierre Stam have decided to leave OCTOBER TIDE in favor of their families and other musical adventures. We want to thank the guys for the past years and wish them both all the best for the future!
But rest assured, new fulltime members have already been found. Pierre has been replaced by Mattias Norrman (ex-KATATONIA) and Tobias replacement will be no other than Alexander Högbom (VOLTURYON, SPASMODIC).
We are thrilled about this new strong line-up and more than ready to focus on the future and things to come. Our primary goal and mission for now is to continue to write new breathtaking material for the next album which will most likely be recorded during the summer for a late 2012 release.
We will keep you updated during the process!”
Fredrik Norrman – guitars (ex-KATATONIA, UNCANNY)
