Pain Of Salvation Reveals New Guitarist Ragnar Zolberg

Pain of Salvation has issued the following announcement about recruiting a new guitar player:

"We are proud to present the last piece of the puzzle for the upcoming tour line-up – the guitar player.

"First, a little background on the auditions. So, we had applications coming in from the whole world (including a few countries we had barely heard of) and it was a pretty massive task to go through them all and make our choices. From close to a hundred applicants we harshly narrowed it down to five guitar players being invited to our rehearsing room for auditions. One from Sweden, one from the UK, one from Iceland, one from Germany and one from France. These were the top-of-the-crop, and it’s quite telling that they were all lead singers in their respective past or present bands. It was hard to choose, especially between the top two guys. However, when the dust settled, it was to Iceland that we turned, and the magical Ragnar Zolberg. So, without further ado, here he is.

"We are certain that Ragnar will have everything that’s needed to kick your asses on the upcoming tour, and our first four days of rehearsals only strengthened that feeling. He is an excellent guitar player and an outstanding vocalist, and he knows how to make use of those abilities while rocking out on stage. On top of that he is an awesome person. What’s not to like?"

Zolberg also commented on joining the band:

"Holy ravens! what the f**k just happened!? My gratitude and excitement for the upcoming tour is far beyond words and I feel unbelievably privileged to be sharing the stage with one of my favorite bands.

"I’ve been going through the songs during the whole Christmas that I’m spending here in London, but the only guitar I had was my nephew’s guitar…..he’s 2 years old! Let’s just say that it’s a very small one but it sort of keeps in tune so it’s not all bad.

"I can’t wait to start rocking out to the music that we’ve all come to love so dearly and I will devote my whole heart to it!"
