Tristania are delighted to announce that violin virtuoso Pete Johansen will be joining the band on the first half of the upcoming European leg of the Rubicon Tour. After playing on the Rubicon Release Party in Stavanger, Johansen will rejoin the band in London on October 8th for the concert at Camden Underworld, and stay on board until after the Krakow concert on October 15th.
"This wasn't really planned at all. Pete was supposed to join us for the release party in Stavanger and that was all, but on our first rehearsal together just a few weeks ago everything just clicked. We did actually joke with Pete about him joining us for the tour, and little did we know that only two days after, Pete would offer his incredible talent to us for so many more gigs than planned. We're all really buzzing about this, and we think our fans will see this as a nice bonus", the band talked to Tristania.com
Norwegian metallers Tristania have issued the following band line-up update:
"Last summer, Østen (Bergøy) announced that he had decided to take some time off from Tristania to devote his time and attention to the new family members expected in August. A year on, it has become obvious that the time, dedication and efforts of fatherhood makes it hard to continue as a full-time member.
Due to this, Østen recently informed the band that he sees no other option than to make his decision a permanent one. Tristania has asked Kjetil Nordhus (Head Disco, ex-Green Carnation, ex-Trail Of Tears), who was engaged as Østen's temporary stand-in, to replace Østen on a permanent basis, and Kjetil has accepted the offer."
The new Tristania video for "Year Of The Rat" is now available online. "Year Of The Rat" is one of the tracks on the new album Rubicon, to be released later this month. The video clip was directed and produced by Jakob Arevärn.
