U.K. thrashers ONSLAUGHT have recruited guitarist Iain GT Davies as the full-time replacement for longtime absentee Andy Rosser Davies.
ONSLAUGHT guitarist Nige Rockett comments: "We are super stoked to welcome Iain as a full-time member of ONSLAUGHT. He's a great guitarist and a real cool guy who has fitted seamlessly into our long established lineup. [We are] really looking forward to getting him totally involved when we start work on writing the new album!"
Rockett continues: "Me and Andy met up for a few beers recently and he felt it was only fair to let us know that it would be impossible for him to return to the band as a touring musician and agreed it was best for everyone if we found a full-time replacement."
Happily, it's not a complete split and Andy will remain part of the team behind the scenes and will definitely be contributing material to ONSLAUGHT's next record.
ONSLAUGHT's sixth album, "VI", was released on September 20, 2013 via AFM Records. The follow-up to 2011's "Sounds Of Violence" was mixed by Thomas "Plec" Johansson (TIAMAT, SCAR SYMMETRY) at Panic Room studios in Skara, Sweden.
