4ARM Recruits New Guitarist markus Johansson

Australian thrash act 4ARM has checked in with the following announcement about recruiting a new guitar player:

"We are excited to announce Markus Johansson as the new lead guitarist of one of the most exciting and most talked about new thrash bands in the world, 4ARM!

"Due to serious family issues John Paul Glovasa was forced to make the difficult decision to step down from his position as lead guitarist in the band! Quoted saying, 'It was by far one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make.' though Danny, Mick and Andy wish Johnny and his family all the best! A hole needed filling.

"With a bunch of European festival dates coming up the band began the search for the man that would become the new lead guitarist of 4ARM. After hours of youtube clips and file sharing the guys narrowed in on Chicago based guitarist Markus Johansson!"

"We were able to kinda speak the same language right from the first time we met" Says front man Danny Tomb. "He just ticked all the right boxes for us, I really felt that I was already talking to "the new guy."

Johansson, who is a self taught lead guitarist from Chicago, has kept busy through the years working on solo projects with members from Anthrax, Testament, Dethklok, Dream Theater and more. After being told he got the job Johansson had this to say: "I am beyond excited, proud, and ready to shred it up with Australia's 4ARM!"

The band is also very pleased to announce that Markus will be joining 4ARM for the European dates scheduled in June, July and August.
