Tampa, Florida’s The Absence has announced that guitarist Per Nilsson of Scar Symmetry has joined forces with the group after the departure of Peter Joseph earlier this month.

The band has already begun tracking for a new EP with James Murphy and will release a single from these efforts soon. Per Nilsson also comments on joining the band:

“Six years ago the guys asked me to do a guest solo for the 'Riders' album and we've been friends ever since. I've followed their career as a fan and when they reached out asking me to join the band, it was a no-brainer. I am super excited to be a part of The Absence family; we've been jamming out some new tunes and I feel like we've got some killer stuff in the works for ya! Between Patrick and me, there’s gonna be some INSANE guitar shreddin' on the new tunes!”

The band members also had some words to share:

“We are super excited to have Per a part of the family. Look forward to great things!” - Jamie Stewart

“Beyond siked to play with such a great friend” - Jeramie Kling

“With Per now a part of The Absence… Boundaries are non-existent” - Patrick Pintavalle

“Per is one of my favorite dudes in the world; I couldn't be more exited to have him in the band!” - Michael Leon
