The first official photo of the new lineup of Sweden’s OCTOBER TIDE can be seen below.
Vocalist Tobias Netzell and bassist Pierre Stam recently left OCTOBER TIDE in order to focus on their family lives and other projects and have since been replaced by Mattias Norrman (ex-KATATONIA) and Alexander Högbom (VOLTURYON, SPASMODIC), respectively.
Commented the band: “We are thrilled about this new strong lineup 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.”
OCTOBER TIDE‘s current lineup:
Fredrik Norrman (KATATONIA, UNCANNY) – Guitar
Mattias Norrman (KATATONIA, DELLAMORTE) – Bass
Alexander Högbom (VOLTURYON, SPASMODIC) – Vocals
Robin Bergh (AMARAN, GOREMENT) – Drums
Emil Alstermark (MANDYLON) – Guitar
OCTOBER TIDE‘s latest album, “A Thin Shell”, was released in North America in September 2010 via Candlelight Records. The band’s first CD in ten years followed the 2009 reissue of its debut, “Rain Without End” (Candlelight).
