Eluveitie - Introduce New Violinist

More than a year after the departure of Nicole Ansperger, Eluveitie can now finally announce and welcome Lea-Sophie Fischer as the band's new permanent violinist.

Statement from the band: ''Hey everybody - we’re excited to finally lift the curtain! Ever since Nicole Ansperger decided to step short and leave Eluveitie for personal reasons and to shift her focus, more than a year ago, it obviously wasn't an easy task to find somebody to fill that gap.

"And so we are really happy and thankful to finally announce Lea-Sophie Fischer as Eluveitie's new violinist! Please welcome her to the Elu family! Some of us have been friends with Sophie for many years already and over time our musical paths crossed quite a few times. After Nicole's departure Sophie helped us out on the stages of the festivals and open airs. And of course we were as glad as we were proud to get support from such an incredible musician. While we grew together as a group, things became very clear and the time's just the right one to join forces for good!"

Sophie comments: "It's an honor to continue the legacy of Eluveitie's violinists and I will give it my everything. We have found each other, both on a personal and musical level, so joining the band feels like coming home. Can't wait meeting you all! Love, Sophie:"
