SOILWORK To Be Joined By DARKANE Drummer For Three Shows

SOILWORK vocalist Björn "Speed" Strid has posted the following message on the band's official web site:

"Just a little update on the festivals for this summer. Some of the festivals got confirmed pretty late and we had big trouble finding flight tickets for a reasonable price for [drummer] Dirk [Verbeuren]. Therefore Peter Wildoer (DARKANE) will fill in for Dirk on three shows (Festimad, Piteå and Malmö). We really appreciate Peter's help and being able to step in with such short notice!
Anyways, we've never played this many festivals and it's covering up most of Europe, so whatever you do, don't miss us!!!

"We're really psyched about playing in Spain at the big Festimad festival next weekend. It's been a while since we gave our Spanish fans a fix, so it will be exciting for sure. It's of course also a great honor to be one of the headliners together with ALICE IN CHAINS... can't wait to see them live."
