Only two weeks ago, folk metal superstars ELUVEITIE have announced that their new line-up is finally set! They have taken a lot of time with the search for new musicians and now they have designed a new website on which there is a countdown to reveal the new formation! New and old band members will be presented little by little with wanted poster, videos and interviews. The complete new line-up will be unveiled on January 1st, just right before the band’s own festival, ‘Eluveitie & Friends’, will take place at Z7, Pratteln, Switzerland on the 6th/7th of January! At this festival, ELUVEITIE will perform with their new line-up for the first time!
On December 15th, the first new band member was revealed: their new drummer Alain Ackermann. On monday this week, Rafael Salzmann (guitars) was announced as well. This was probably not much of a surprise though, you’ve already seen and heard him at many shows and many tours. But now we’ve got some special news again: Please meet & welcome to the ELUVEITIE family the new guitar player Jonas Wolf!
That’s what Jonas’ personal friend, the legendary Tommy Vetterli of CORONER says about him: “I’ve worked with Jonas in the studio a couple of times! I’ve seen and heard him playing all kinds of music. Even though his heart is a 100% in metal, it doesn’t matter what he’s playing – it’s always at absolute top level!”
