According to a posting on Blabbermouth Patrick Uterwijk will join Pestilence as touring guitarist.

Dutch guitarist/vocalist Patrick Mameli has released the following statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET regarding the upcoming album and tour from his resurrected late '80s/early '90s death metal outfit Pestilence: "Although previous statements about a Pestilence reunion with original members (which I think still isn't my intention), it's with great pleasure to announce that none other than Patrick Uterwijk [guitar] will be touring once again with Pestilence next year. "After almost six years, I got in touch with Patrick U. through a mutual friend, Sean Sitka. He gave me Uterwijk's mail address and phone number stressing me I have to call the guy since Tymon K. wasn't gonna work out because of his involvement with CYNIC. We spoke for one and a half hour about the past and future. "Although he will not be recording for the new album, he got very excited about the new material as well. We also spoke about his illness because of the energy it takes to do a tour." Uterwijk said in a statement: "I'm feeling great and doctors think now I'm probably not suffering from M.S. [multiple sclerosis] at all (first diagnoses at the time made doctors think this was the case). This off course is great news as well!!!! So now, people can enjoy Pestilence live in an almost original and familiar setting!!!"
