The band has announced the following on their website:

"The response to our bassist search has been overwhelming, and we want to send our sincere thanks to everyone that got in touch. Applications poured in from pretty much every continent, and some of the interested musicians are members in bands that we have been huge fans of for many years, which was extremely flattering.

However, we can now announce that the search is over, and that we've recruited Daniel Antonsson (Dimension Zero, ex-Soilwork) to handle the bass duties for the upcoming tour. We welcome Daniel to the fold and look forward to hitting the road with him."

Sounds good.

Good news that Antonsson, who toured with them this year, finally got completely involved in the Dark Tranquillity project. Fiction was awesome, I'm looking forward to the next time they come to Spain.

That's why i think he's an excellent replacement, considering that soilwork isn't a bad band.

I'm sure Martin will be fine. I don't know him that well, but DT bass lines were never THAT complicated

Great and suitable choice IMO, let's see what he will be able to do...

I hope Daniel Antonsson is a great addition to Dark Tranquility. Since he has experience, most likely he will.
