Kongh Parts Ways With Bassist Oskar Ryden

Sweden's Kongh has issued the following announcement about parting ways with bassist Oskar Ryden:

"As the ones who attended our shows last weekend already know, Kongh is now temporarily a 2-piece. Our bass player Oskar Rydén, who's been in the band since 2006, has parted ways with the band. Thanks for your time Oskar, and good luck with your future achievements.

"Since we released our second album 'Shadows of the shapeless' last year, we've put as much of our time and energy as possible into touring and promoting the album. Now we feel like we're done touring this time around, and what we've had in mind for the autumn for a while now is to lock ourselves up in the rehearsal space and focus hard on writing our third album. Anyone who wants to see us live with this temporary line-up can do so in September while we're playing in Vetlanda on the 3rd, Leipzig (with Ufomammut) on the 15th and hopefully in Stockholm (with Switchblade) on the 14th.

"For those wondering, the bassist position is free and we're open for suggestions. Anyone who really knows how to handle a bass and has a strong passion for the kind of music we play is free to get in touch. Hometown, age or gender isn't of any big importance, but you haveto be able to practise in Vetlanda, Småland every now and then, and have the time and ambition to occasionally tour. Interested? Write a mail to david@kongh.net

"So what the two of us will do now is to continue writing a new album which we hope to be able to record as soon as possible. We'll keep you posted on the progress. We'll still be open for gig requests for the time being (although you'll most likely get us as a 2-piece), so feel free to get in touch if you have an offer. We'll most likely keep a pretty low profile for a while now though, but expect us to be back in 2011 with a new line-up, new tours and a new album that will present a Kongh that is louder, heavier and far more crushing than ever."
