According to Sweden's Close-Up magazine, long-running Swedish Death Metallers Dismember have tapped drummer Thomas Daun (ex-Repugnant, Insision, Subvision) for their upcoming European tour.

Dismember last month announced that it has parted ways with longtime drummer Fred Estby. "My decision to put my family in first hand makes it impossible to keep on touring and commit to the band full-time," Estby said in a statement. "I want to thank all the fans, friends, bands and all the other cool people I've met through the years and I wish Dismember all the best in the future."

Dismember is currently in the process of writing new material and "this sad loss will not interrupt any future plans in any way," the band wrote on its web site. "The commitment to keep on playing is stronger than ever!"

Dismember's latest album "The God That Never Was", was released in February 2006 via Regain Records. The follow-up to 2004's "Where Ironcrosses Grow" was once again produced by Estby at Sami Studio in Stockholm. The group's current lineup includes Matti Kärki (vocals), David Blomqvist (guitar), Martin Persson (guitar) and "newcomer" Tobias Christiansson on bass.

Good for them. And an upcoming European tour? I assume dates are TBA...

Cool to hear that, IMO this will bring a fresh drum sound to the band, not that Estby was bad, I loved the guy but this could be a fresh addon to the band.
