CIVIL WAR Goes The Three-Guitar RouteMonday, 26th May 2014
CIVIL WAR — the Swedish melodic metal band featuring former SABATON members Rikard Sundén (guitar), Daniel Mullback (drums), Daniel Mÿhr (keyboards) and Oskar Montelius (guitar) alongside singer Patrik Johansson (ASTRAL DOORS, LION’S SHARE) and bassist Stefan “Pizza” Eriksson (VOLTURYON) — has announced the addition of guitarist Peturs Granar to the group’s ranks.
Comments the band: “Petrus has been a friend and working closely with the band since [CIVIL WAR’s debut album] The Killer Angels with demos, arrangements etc. He is a very talented guitarist and good with arrangements. Petrus also worked as a backline tech for the band since last November. It feels just natural to offer him a place with the band as he’s been our ‘seventh member’ all along. We look forward to have him in our band of brothers and he will add another dimension to our live sound and push the boundaries for what we can do with pretty much everything both on album and what we can make out of it as a live band.”
CIVIL WAR is currently recording its second album for a late 2014 release via Napalm Records.
