Cloudscape - Part Ways With Guitarist, New Album Title

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.

We have a few more songs left to compose in order to have more than enough songs to the next album (New Era) but, we are quite sure we will be finished with the song-writing process during early fall. As soon as we are finished with the new songs we will start to check out the music business and contact different labels for a possible co-operation and release of New Era. We will also make sure to find good booking agencies that have the right connections to organize more live shows and tours. Nonetheless we will try to do a few more shows during 2010 so, stay tuned and keep yourself up to date in this site. The next scheduled live show will be in Helsingborg, Sweden at the venue called The Tivoli as special guest to FullForce on July 10. We will have something very special included in our setlist as well... don't miss this event.

Unfortunately we have a sad announcement as well. Björn Eliasson (guitar) have also decided to leave Cloudscape. His reasons for this is just like Roger and Haynes... personal reasons. He will continue to compose music in one way or another but, he will not be a part of Cloudscape anymore. So, all of us would like to say the following to Björn:

"THANKS a million for all the years we've been partners in crime in Cloudscape. You will certainly be missed and we really wish the best for you and your musical endeavours in the future to come. Cheers mate!"

We are currently trying out a few replacements for Björn. Soon we will be able to announce the new axeman...stay tuned!

So, as you see, some good news and some sad but, Cloudscape will continue as before but, with new blood in the band and considering the past months we decided to name our fourth album New Era which talks for itself."
