Tristania Recruits Violin Player Pete Johansen For European Tour

Tristania has issued the following announcement about recruiting violin player Pete Johansen for the band's upcoming European tour:

"Tristania are delighted to announce that violin virtuoso Pete Johansen will be joining the band on the first half of the upcoming European leg of the Rubicon Tour. After playing on the Rubicon Release Party in Stavanger, Johansen will rejoin the band in London on October 8th for the concert at Camden Underworld, and stay on board until after the Krakow concert on October 15th.

"This wasn’t really planned at all. Pete was supposed to join us for the release party in Stavanger and that was all, but on our first rehearsal together just a few weeks ago everything just clicked. We did actually joke with Pete about him joining us for the tour, and little did we know that only two days after, Pete would offer his incredible talent to us for so many more gigs than planned. We’re all really buzzing about this, and we think our fans will see this as a nice bonus.

"Pete Johansen rejoined forces with Tristania for the Rubicon studio sessions earlier this year and recorded guest violin parts for several of the songs on the album. This was the first collaboration since World of Glass (2001)."
