Pressure Points Parts Ways With Guitarist Juho Suortti

Finland's Pressure Points has issued the following update about parting ways with guitarist Juho Suortti:

"Juho Suortti, our long-time friend and fellow musician, has decided to leave Pressure Points. Juho has gone through some major changes in his life and felt he could not continue with the band anymore. The news was shocking, as it came out of the blue, but now it is time to look forward.

"Every black cloud has a silver lining indeed: Juho's departure gave us a chance to think about the line-up from a new perspective. We have now agreed to begin the search for a new singer-guitarist. Primarily we are looking for a leading clean vocalist with good guitar skills. We expect the person to be passionate about singing and creating vocal arrangements. Having artistic vision and songwriting skills is an advantage. Joining the band requires commitment and devotion, as we are looking for a permanent member, not a session musician. We practice in Heinola once or twice a month during the weekends, and do gigs quite often.

"Nearly all the material is written for the second album. It is in our plans to head for the studio soon after we have found the new member. Negotiations with different labels about the publishing are proceeding. We have played over 100 gigs and recently toured with Nile abroad. So this is the real deal."
