MUSTASCH recently confirmed the addition of guitarist David Johannesson (ex-SPARZANZA) to the group's ranks.
David was MUSTASCH's stand-in guitar-player during the band's late summer shows and is now with the group full-time.
Commented guitarist/vocalist Ralf Gyllenhammar: "The time between Hannes [Hansson] quitting and David coming in has been chaotic. Finally it feels like we are a band again. David is the right guy and we believe we have done an excellent choice. He also shares our passion for intoxicating liquids."
David Johannesson added: "When Mustasch asked me to join the band I became very happy, but at the same time I was in the studio with my band SPARZANZA to record our next album. In the end the decision was obvious. I quit my day job the very same day I made my decision."
MUSTASCH was honored in "Best Hard Rock" category at Sweden's "Grammis" gala, which was held on January 9 at Globen in Stockholm. MOTÖRHEAD drummer Mikkey Dee presented the award to MUSTASCH, who beat out such veterans acts as CANDLEMASS, ENTOMBED and CLAWFINGER for the honor.
MUSTASCH released a "best-of" album, entitled "Lowlife Highlight", in February through Regain Records. The CD features 18 songs from the band's back catalogue originally issued by EMI.
MUSTASCH recently inked a new deal with Regain Records for the group's follow-up to "Latest Version of the Truth", scheduled for a 2009 release.
