After playing together in the same line-up for over 10 years, Dutch melodic thrashers Detonation are now making their first ever line-up change.

The band has welcomed Danny Tunker (also Fuelblooded, The Saturnine) to the ranks to handle the guitar. This automatically means that co-founder Koen Romeijn (Guitar/Vocals) will lay down his guitar within Detonation, and that he will be focusing on the vocals only from this point on.



Commented vocalist Koen Romeijn:

We all felt the need for a change within Detonation, and I had been thinking about focusing on the vocals for quite some time now, so I decided to bring in my idea to the group. Mike, Otto and Thomas were all quite shocked that this decision came from me, but they were all positively surprised. Danny, besides being one of our closest friends, is easily one of the best guitar players in the Netherlands, and we all believe that he is the only person suitable for the job. So from now on, he will be handling my guitar parts, and I will start focusing my energy on the vocals, which without doubt will be a positive change for our live shows and performance and most important; our future albums! As for the creative aspect, I will still function as one of the songwriters for Detonation, as I have been doing since the beginning of this band, so no worries for the die-hard Detonation fans haha! I personally can't wait for Danny to join us on stage and in the writing process of our upcoming 4th album!



Commented Danny Tunker:

Detonation have been among my favourite bands for years, even before I first met them while touring the UK with Fuelblooded. We immediately hit it off on a personal level. Fast forward 2 years and I was very surprised and honoured to be asked to join them. I know this must've been a tough decision, but thanks for giving me this chance guys! Let's do this!

At first I thought there was a replacement, but this is good news too

My first reaction was the same as yours.
But Danny joining is cool, this means I have seen the new line-up perofrm live already at their 10th Anniversary gig when Danny joined as guest.

I thought it was a bad news too, but it's just a line-up adjustment. Good. I wish all the best to the band with this new line-up, no doubts they will kick ass again and again.
