Evergrey Announces New Bassist, Jari Kainulainen
In a post on their official website, Evergrey announced that their new bassist is Jari Kainulainen, formerly of Stratovarius. Here's part of the statement from Evergrey frontman Tom Englund:
"We got along great and it of course also helps a lot that Jari is a very experienced player when it comes to playing live with his several world tours together with Stratovarius as proof."
"This was one of the main things we were looking for in a bass-player except for the playing of course, so that we wouldn’t end up with a person who after 100 gigs finds out that this was not what he was meant for, cause this is, whether you believe so or not, a very weird and demanding life that let’s you experience the greatest things in the world as well as the sickest, most draining moments of utter insecurity - that of course immediately vanishes as soon as we get to play for you guys! We are so much looking forward to the coming months of recording and playing and it honestly feels like a fresh start and an injection I think we needed."
Kainulainen's first show with Evergrey will be at the Fosen Rock Festival in Fosen Norway on August 25th.
As previously reported, Everygrey parted ways with bassist Fredrik Larsson earlier this year, only nine months after he was recruited as the replacement for Michael Håkansson.
