SOILWORK frontman Björn “Speed” Strid is featured in the latest episode of PureGrainAudio’s “Tales Of Touring Terror” which he recounts what happened to his band while they were performing at last year’s edition of the Hellfest festival in Clisson, France.
SOILWORK’s tenth studio album, “The Ride Majestic”, was released worldwide on August 28 via Nuclear Blast.
Joining SOILWORK on tour in support of the effort will be new bassist Markus Wibom, formerly of Helsingborg hardcore group HEARTS ALIVE. Wibom replaces longtime bandmember Ola Flink, who has amicably left the group to focus on other endeavors. Wibom has been a personal friend of the band for many years and has previously toured with SOILWORK as a guitar tech and lighting designer. Wibom made his live debut with SOILWORK in Stockholm on April 30.
Catch Wibom out on tour with SOILWORK on the band’s upcoming European headline tour, dubbed “The Tour Majestic”, with support from HATESPHERE. The European dates will follow SOILWORK’s upcoming U.S. tour with SOULFLY, DECAPITATED and SHATTERED SUN.
