Sweden's Darkwater has issued the following statement about canceling their appearance at the Brainstorm festival due to a health issue of guitarist Markus Sigfridsson:
"Unfortunately we have to cancel the show at Brainstorm festival. The reason for us canceling this so close in time to the festival is health/hearing related for Markus. He has been ordered by doctors and specialists to rest for a few months. We ask and hope for your understanding in this matter, we are truly sorry for this and we hope to see you another time soon."
Sweden's Darkwater has issued the following update about seeking a new bassist and writing new material:
"We've understood that a lot of people are curious and would like an update on what is going on with Darkwater at the moment. It..s now been a while since we released our first album and we quite recently parted with our bass player. So what is really happening in the dark waters?
"Regarding the bass player spot, we have auditioned several people but still haven't found exactly what we are looking for. We will keep looking until we find the perfect match. In the meantime we will use Simon Andersson (ex-Pain of Salvation) as a session player. He is an amazing bass player with lots of experience, and a better substitute would probably be impossible to find.
"And what is happening with the new album? For quite some time we've gone through all the music we've had laying around, re-written a lot of it and written a bunch of new songs. So right now we have far too many songs to put on one album, or even ten albums. But we are doing our best to choose the most fitting songs for this up-coming album. We still have a lot of lyrics to write and also some melodies, but we are planning to head into the recording studios later this year. So some time next year there will be a new Darkwater album out for you to enjoy.
"Thank for your support, and patience!"
