And the New Bassist for Soilwork Is…
Ehrnborn’s induction into the band isn’t really a surprise — he’s been a touring member for a few years now, and he also plays in The Night Flight Orchestra with Soilwork frontman Björn “Speed” Strid. Still, when one of the most popular melodeath bands in the world gets a new member, it’s newsworthy, in’it?
Says the band in a statement:
“We are pleased to finally welcome Rasmus Ehrnborn to the Soilwork family and announce him as our official bass player and full time member of the band. Rasmus has been onstage with us ever since the 2019 Verkligheten campaign and recorded our EP A Whisp Of The Atlantic as well as our upcoming album that is due this year. Rasmus is a world class musician and has truly become an important member of the band, and we look forward to seeing what the future holds for this new constellation.”
“For me, joining Soilwork as a full time member is a bit of a dream come true as I’ve been a big fan of the band for many years. Their musicianship and songwriting is out of this world, and after touring and recording with the guys these past few years I’ve come to consider them all dear friends. I’m humbled and proud to be a part of the next chapter of Soilwork.”
Ehrnborn will make his recording debut with the band on their new album, which is due for release later this year.
