Paindivision has announced the departure of guitarist Mark Hobson. Mark has chosen to pursue his musical career further overseas in Finland.
Mark comments: “Moving overseas before 2010 is a personal goal which I set myself in 2008. It’s been an adventure being a part of Paindivision. Though, I am now set on my new journey to pursue my career overseas, I will always be a fan and a promoter for the music of the band. I wish the boys the best of luck for the future, and intend to help the 'Pain' storm Europe.”
His permanent replacement will be Ben Thomas, who previously played guitar in Sydney based band Thundasteel and also made a guest appearance on the album “Empires of Eden - Songs of War and Vengeance.”
Ben comments: “I am honoured to be involved with such a world-class act like Paindivision and really look forward to the upcoming shows and what is to come. I wish Mark all the success for his future.”
Ben’s live performance debut with the band will be headlining the “Onslaught of Sound” fest in Canberra on September 26th. This show will be captured on video for a future DVD release. The show also features Sydney thrashers “Switchblade” and a host of the country's emerging metal acts.
