Pressrelease from Per Schelander:
After 4 rollercoaster years of music, laughter and good memories I have to leave Royal Hunt - the reason is that I simply can’t (due to my obligations in Pain of Salvation) give RH the time and effort the band deserves.
It’s been lovely to play with you guys – André, Marcus, Allan, Mark and Maria! It also feels good to pass the torch to such a great player as Andreas Passmark, who will fit the band perfectly. My warmest thanks go to all the fans I met during these last 4 years – you really made me feel welcome when I was the new guy and loved while I was on board!
Message from Royal Hunt:
We’d like to thank Per for 4 wonderful years with us – his dedication, remarkable musical abilities and easy-going personality has been a great asset to us all. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours, all the success which he so rightfully deserves and – while saying goodbye to a talented bass player - looking forward to continuation of a great friendship.
We’d also like to introduce our new friend, an extremely gifted bass player Andreas Passmark (Narnia, Rob Rock, E-Type). As the band continues to upload “the building of a RH song – track by track”, you can go for pictures, mp3´s and other details about recordings (now also incl. bass) to www.royalhunt.com and check out the “Studio Diary”.
