SoulHealer Splits With Bassist Teemu Aho, Replacement Announced

Finnish melodic metal act SoulHealer announced the departure of bassist Teemu Aho, who left the band for personal reasons, but will remain as the band's webmaster. His replacement is Pasi Laakonen. The band is also working on the follow up to the 2011 self-released debut full length "The Kings of Bullet Alley," which is targeted for a Spring 2013 release.

The band's full announcement reads as follows:

"Teemu Aho is forced to quit his active commitment as bass player in SoulHealer for personal reasons. But he will continue to be a part of the family as webmaster and wherever his help is needed. Although the band was hit hard with this decision, they didn’t lose any time in looking for a replacement. Sami Mikkonen thought of his best old friend Pasi Laakkonen, who has a Garage Rock Band running with Alpha Indigo at the moment. Both already played together in some cover band projects some 10 years ago, and for the last time about 4 years ago. Pasi was invited for an audition, where he left no doubt that he his the right guy at the right place at the right time. So we welcome Pasi Laakkonen as the new bass player in SoulHealer. He will give his live debut already at the next show on 7th September at Bar Bäkkäri in Helsinki. Beside that SoulHealer are working hard on the follow up for their debut album 'The Kings Of Bullet Alley'. The song writing process is going great, and as usual every new song will be tested in the live situation. So you should not be surprised to hear some new songs on any upcoming shows. Only tracks that work live will find their way on the next SoulHealer Album. And the band is confident to have it ready and finished for a release in spring 2013 through Pure Legend Records."
