Taken from a message posted on the Pain Of Salvation website :
"So, let it be publically known: on the 10th of March, after the Copenhagen show, Simon Andersson was welcomed into Pain of Salvation as a full member. He did an outstanding job on the tour and we are looking forward to the coming years with great anticipation. Since his girlfriend is a huge Pain of Salvation fan, we happily expect to see this decision put a little silver lining on their sex life as well, since she can now all of a sudden go to bed with a member of the band
Congratulations Simon, and welcome to the family!"
