New Bass Player Count Foxico Announced By Stuka Squadron

Following the departure of founding member Graham Lord Pyre, Stuka Squadron announced a permanent bass player in the form of Count Carlos Montoya el Foxico. Foxico replaces temporary bassist Doktor Suicide, who played on the band's forthcoming LP "New Sounds of War," which is expected for release on November 19, 2012 via Metalbox Recordings.

The announcement reads as follows:

"The Squadron is preparing for its next missions; the continuance of the Winter War, beginning in Southampton this Friday, 19 October. It also marks the entrance into Squadron history of a colleague long known to the Squadron but on duties elsewhere: Count Carlos Montoya el Foxico (not to be confused with swordmaster Inigo Montoya who seeks revenge against the six-fingered man that killed his father...though they may be distant relations).

"Doktor Suicide, a Squadron Pilot from days of yore and who recently stepped back in to see the Squadron through many live shows and album writing and recording during 2012, is nearing the end of his stationing within the United Kingdom. It was always known that he has to return to the East and therefore could not remain indefinitely with the Squadron. While with us he has bought stunning guitar work and new layers of musical adventure, fitting like a hand into the undead Squadron glove. But alas, the Winter War continues without the Doktor.

"Enter Count Foxico...

"As is related in the Squadron history, war and chaos have long been perfect homes for those of a vampiric nature. Count Foxico was perfectly at home slaking his blood lust in the orange groves that were the killing fields of the Condor Legion; an arena of war where the very nature of the Sturzkampfflugzeug, the Stuka, was developed. And now Foxico joins the Squadron. The New Sound Of War has fresh teeth to it......"
