Swedish stoners ELECTRIC EARTH have issue the following update:
"Lars Berger (drummer) who’s a founding member of the band has decided to leave and to pursue other interests. The rest of the band would like to take the opportunity to thank Lars for all of his contributions during the years. 'Lars has been a vital part of the EE sound and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.' Electric Earth would like to point out that the decision is Lars own. The new drummer in Electric Earth will be Magnus Olsson aka “Draken”. Draken played together with Lyris (Karlsson - bass) and Tommy (Scalisi - guitar) in their old band RAT SALAD and together they released the album The Golden Playground back in 1994. The new foursome will be hard at work rehearsing the Electric Earth material to be ready to hit the stage in a near future. More info to follow on the bands website Electricearth1.com so stay tuned."
