Swedish metal band Mustasch has parted ways with their guitarist of ten years. The band issued the following statement on their website:
After ten years as guitarist in Mustasch Hannes Hansson decides to leave the band. His last concert will be in Gothenburg, 25th of June at Liseberg. "It's been a fantastic period of ten years with the band, but now the band has grown so much with touring all over the world. It takes too much from my family and other things in life which I now want to put all my priority to", Hannes comments. Hannes Hansson leaving the band will not mean any changes in tourplans and Mustasch will keep on with a temporary replacer.
Archer has performed with some of the biggest names in rock including, Heaven and Hell, Heart and Sevendust. The band is looking forward to sharing the stage at the Sweden Rock Festival (www.swedenrock.com) this summer alongside such metal giants as Judas Priest, Def Leppard, Whitesnake, Poison, RATT, Triumph, Saxon, Disturbed and many more as they return to Europe.
The Santa Cruz, CA-based power trio, who won "Best Local Band 2008" in the Metro Santa Cruz Goldies Awards, takes the stage on Saturday, June 7th, opening for some of the biggest names in the metal music genre. The Sweden Rock Festival is held in Norjeboke, in the tiny village of Norje which is situated in Sölvesborg in the western part of southern Sweden.
Archer’s debut album "Doom$day Profit$" is a "genuine tour-de-force, rich with powerful songs imbued with that essential combination of brain-burrowing melodies, ripping riffs, pulsing basslines, tsunami drums and grab-by-the-throat vocals." The band cites influences that include Ozzy and Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Metallica and other legendary names.

The Wacken Open Air website has posted the following message online:
"Dear Metalheads, we are proud to confirm the swedish Mustasch as newest band in the W:O:A billing. Over the last years the band earned a lot of fame with their mixture of metal and hardrock. This year they will also perform in front of the W:O:A audience."
Swedish act Mustasch has been honored with the “Best Hard Rock” Grammis award, the Swedish version of the Grammy Awards, for its album “Latest Version of the Truth.”
The Gothenberg-based quartet was presented with the award by Motorhead drummer Mikkey Dee at the awards ceremony on January 9 at Globen in Stockholm. Mustasch beat out tough competition in veteran bands like Candlemass, Clawfinger, Entombed, and Arch Enemy.
“It felt a lot more emotional and fantastic than we initially thought,” said vocalist/lead guitarist Ralf Gyllenhammar. “Before the Grammys we thought of it more as an industry meet or a public event where it doesn’t really affect us personally if we win or loose, but when Mikkey Dee announced us as winners it was almost like a blackout of joy! Can hardly remember what was said in the speech.”
