Swedish progressive metal band Cloudscape have issued the following update on the band's forthcoming album, New Era:
"Cloudscape is very excited about 2011 considering they'll release their fourth album to be entitled New Era. All songs are now written and the band is making plans with their management. Cloudscape will most likely enter the studio during the first months of 2011. Cloudscape have as you may know went through a few member changes (new drummer, new bassist, new guitarist, ed.) and it's been 2.5 years since the release of Global Drama so, the band is happy to say that all wounds are healed and the band is back in the saddle more inspired than ever."
In other news, vocalist Mike Andersson's other band, Full Force, have uploaded a new song to be included on their debut album to be released also in 2011. The track "None Of Your Concern" can be heard here.
Cloudscape is working on a fourth album to be entitled New Era. Here's an update from the band:
"As some of you might have noticed it has been quite silent around Cloudscape for some time. We have updated a few minor news in order to send you all some life-signs. Nonetheless as mentioned, Cloudscape is still fully alive and hungrier than ever. But, 2009 and parts of 2010 have been quite struggling years mainly because of member changes and stuff which have prevented us from moving on. Roger Landin and Haynes Pherson left Cloudscape in early 2009 because of personal issues and they were shortly replaced by Fredrik Joakimsson (drums) and Håkan Nyander (bass). Fredrik and Håkan have filled the band with new fuel and inspiration and the song-writing for our fourth album is going really damn well and all of us are very excited about the new songs.
Cloudscape have found a new drummer to replace Roger Landin. His name is Fredrik Joakimsson and is a friend of Cloudscape since a few years back.
Fredrik played live with Cloudscape on February 27 in their hometown (Helsingborg) and everything went really awesome both personally and musically and fans of Cloudscape praised his performance. Fredrik learned the setlist (10 songs) in less than 9 days and impressed a lot with his skillfull playing so, the guys in Cloudscape was totally convinced that Fredrik is the right guy for the band to play drums. Fredrik is more or less unknown considering he haven't recorded any albums before and has only been (and is) active in locally known bands so, Cloudscape is happy and pleased to introduce fredrik Joakimsson to the world of metal as their new permanent drummer.
"It is with sadness and grief that we must announce that our good friend and drummer Roger Landin have decided to leave Cloudscape. His descision to leave is personal and has nothing to do with Cloudscape and we are still the best of friends. We have recorded 3 albums that we are really proud of and we will miss Roger enormously both as a drummer, musician and as a part of Cloudscape. We have had a great time together that will never be forgotten. We'll wish all the best for Roger and his family in the future to come."
And the statement from Roger Landin:
"I have made an extremely hard decision. I´m leaving the great Cloudscape due to personal reasons. The band has been a big part of my life for many years, and it has been a wonderful ride. I will thank my great bandmates and of course all of you out there who have supported us over the years. Keep tuning in to this awesome band in the future. To my fellow comrades in the band: Best of luck!"
