Sabaton - Guitarist Thobbe Englund Rejoins

A week after parting ways with guitarist Tommy Johansson, Swedish power metal institution Sabaton welcome back Thorbjörn "Thobbe" Englund as the band's new full-time member.

On his return, Englund declares: "Words can't express how ready and how excited I am to jump back into Sabbaton. It feels like I was on a short holiday. The time is right, love is in the air and the best is yet to come!”

Bassist and band manager Pär Sundström comments: "This is a full-circle moment for Sabaton and we are beyond excited to have Thobbe rejoin the band. He's a talented guitarist, songwriter and a kind guy who we have a lot of fun with. We didn't even need to hold auditions with other guitar players. All that was needed was to spend New Year's Eve together to know that the time was right for Thobbe's return."

Frontman Joakim Brodén states: "This decision was a no-brainer for us as a band and for Thobbe. He knows the drill and is the perfect fit. This is a great outcome, and we think everyone is going to be psyched about the news! The time is right. Welcome back, brother!"

Meanwhile drummer Hannes Van Dahl adds: "Who? Thobbe f***ng Englund, that's who! The man is back! I'm happy to once again share the stage with one of my best friends! Welcome back, brother!"

And finally, fellow guitarist Chris Rörland says: "I'm beyond excited and happy for the return of the king! We've had so many good times together, both on stage and off stage. It's gonna be great to share the stage again. Welcome back and welcome home my brother! Love ya!"

I was hoping it will be Mia Montelius, but I had a hunch it will be Thorbjörn. All main song writers lives in Falun or area, (only drummer and guitarist more far away)

Life is to short for LOVE, there is many great things to do online !!!
