Falconer Announce New Members

Falconer guitarist Stefan Weinerhall has posted this message on the band's official website:

On the 18th and 19th of September we held an audition for the few guitarists we had chosen out from those who had applied for the job. We played one song from every album.

On the evening the 18th we went to see Kristoffer perform with one of his coverbands "Copycats" for a full house. It can't be only work. Name a rehearsal weekend with Falconer where everyone is feeling OK on the Sunday. Ha ha!! We never learn!

When we tested the last guitarist he played the songs exactly as I did. Every boing, pling and shugga-shugga was there. But we wanted a good solo guitarist and when he started to do his solos the rest of the band got lost leaving Jimmy to be the only one playing correctly. Hmmm, ehrr well. It really just took only about 20 seconds into the first song and I watched Kristoffer's face: yup it was a fact, Jimmy Hedlund was the guy.


We'll have a full band to rehearse the new album with but also to rehearse some more old material with Jimmy. All the songs to the next album is written and most of them rehearsed. The title of the next album will be "Grime vs Grandueur."

It feels like it's "for real" now.
