Vandenberg - Introduce Mats Levén As New Vocalist


The Dutch hard rock outfit Vandenberg, led by Adrian Vandenberg, have announced that Mats Levén will be joining the band as a lead singer. The powerhouse vocalist is known for his work with Yngwie Malmsteen, Candlemass and tours with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, among many other bands. To celebrate this new coming together, they have announced their only show of 2021 with the new line-up at the Planet Rockstock Festival at Trecco Bay, Wales, on Friday 12th November.

Talking about Mats joining the band, Adrian Vandenberg exclaims: "To say I'm excited about working with Mats Levén would be an understatement! It's a huge privilege to work with a vocalist of Mats' world-class calibre, who's just as passionate about kick-ass rock and as motivated and dedicated as I am. A one of a kind signature voice, commanding stage presence, very experienced but as far from running on automatic pilot as humanly possible and a great guy! Mats and I are working on our new songs for the next Vandenberg album as we speak. We're pushing and inspiring each other to keep raising the bar and are coming up with great, very exciting stuff!"

Mats says: "I'm thrilled to join Vandenberg and to be recording the new album! I've been a fan since the '80s, and I'm honoured to be soon sharing the stage with my Dutch amigos!"

Vandenberg playing doom metal?! Now that I gotta see. Also you think the newcomer to the band will dictate the style of music to the veteran guitarist songwriter?

you do know he's played in other genres than doom. If he exclusively played in doom bands, I would agree, but it's not the case.

Thanks, it is corrected now. Vandenberg's Facebook page has it wrong and I guess that is what confused us.
