FACE DOWN, the reunited Swedish outfit featuring former THE HAUNTED singer Marco Aro, have parted ways with drummer Erik Thyselius. "There's no hard feelings and he will continue to keep playing with CONSTRUCDEAD and TERROR 2000," the band write in a statement. "We wish him the best of luck with all his future endeavors and thank him for his time in the band.
"[Erik's] replacement is well-renowned drummer Christofer Barkensjö (KAAMOS, BLACKSHINE) who will be lending us his skills from now on. Rehearsals are already underway and things are sounding awesome. Welcome to the band! First gig with Chris will be at Club Monster in Gävle on the 10th of March so be sure not to miss out on that."
