Diablo Swing Orchestra - Part Ways With Vocalist, Replacement Announced


Sweden's unique avantgarde metal act Diablo Swing Orchestra have posted a message via their Facebook regarding a sudden line up change with the departure of their long time main vocalist Annlouice Loegdlund and hints at new material. Annlouice Loegdlund leaves the band to pursue her opera career and will be replaced by Kristin Evegård. The band is already recording a new single with the new vocalist.

Here's the full statement from the band: "Aside from our wondrous experiences while writing, recording, rehearsing and touring during the last few years, one of our main concerns has been that AnnLouice's own opera career exceedingly has taken up more and more of her time. Hence, our long gaps between shows, and problems planning our operation as a band in general. Unfortunately, this fact has eventually led to AnnLouice leaving Diablo Swing Orchestra to pursue her own career to the fullest. As dear friends first, and a band second, we also separate as such. That being said, we're indeed glad for her success and wish her a thrilling venture like none other! Also — Our mutual thankfulness for the last decade of unison musical creativity as the orchestra we've grown into, sure shines through our creations; and always did, through thick and thin. As you sense by now, here comes the conjunction 'but'.

"Of course the matter at hand has meant that we somehow had to find a proper solution to continue doing what we simply love so much — creating and performing music as a group. 'Solution' is a poor word of choice really, as no words actually capture what we're trying to convey here, ten years in (!), but yes — Conclusively we have now found a main vocalist replacement. A 'solution' that provides the band with an all new gusto, and which is taking Diablo Swing in prestine directions. Diablo Swing Orchestra finally materializes a new phase, featuring new mojo, delight and energy! Enter Kristin Evegård. And you won't have to wait long to hear her, as we're recording a new single as we speak, with a planned release in late October. Yes, we hear you say, 'less talk, more mojo', so without any further ado: presenting the new Diablo Swing Orchestra with Kristin Evegård."

Awww... I really liked her style for DSO. But I don't think she's that essential to their sound so we'll see how it turns out in the end.

I'd be commenting on what metal guys look like, but honestly, look at them. They aren't there for their looks - not to say that the ladies are, but often they make efforts to be something better than butt ugly.

Well, she's certainly better looking. Let's see how she does behind the mic before making my judgement though.


I wonder how we're going to be able to hear her better-looking face through the speakers.

I already apologized for this a long time ago, if you're still making a big deal out of this then I'm not the asshole here.

I agree with Creativinity and Doc Godin , she definitely was a very important part of the band and of their distinctive style, but everyone has priorities... we don't know her side of the story... and if she needed to move on, who can blame her...

i listened to the new singer and well she has a singular voice but is not in the same way as Annlouice... i don't know how she is going to handle the old stuff

In other hand their latest albums, while weren't bad, were at least for me less interesting and not as great... maybe she will give them a diferent perspective
