Masterplan Comments On New Members Rick Altzi And Jari Kainulainen

As was recently announced, Masterplan is back with a new line-up and big plans for upcoming activity. Swedish vocalist Rick Altzi (At Vance, Thunderstone) is replacing Jorn Lande and Masterplan's new bass player is Jari Kainulainen (ex-Stratovarius/Evergrey).

"The last years have not been easy for Masterplan," band leader Roland Grapow comments. "Because of several factors we have been unable to play festivals and tours - even though we had plenty of offers. But this will definitely change now. I’m very happy to welcome Rick and Jari on board now. Beside their undoubted musical qualities they both fit perfectly into our team. We feel a huge motivation to get things going now. 2013 will be see a new Masterplan album, several festivals and a tour! It’s time to return with full force."

First confirmed Masterplan gigs for 2013 include:

Wacken Cruise
Rocknacht Tennwilm (Switzerland)
Norfest (Portugal)
Masters Of Rock (Czech Republic)
