THE POODLES To Release New Single

June 26, 2008

Swedish hard rockers THE POODLES will release their new single, "Raise The Banner", on Wednesday, July 2.

THE POODLES recently recruited guitarist Henrik Bergqvist (SOUTHFORK, TIAMAT) to replace Pontus Norgren, who left the group to join HAMMERFALL. The new axeman made his live debut with THE POODLES on June 6 at the Sweden Rock Festival in Slvesborg, Sweden.

Commented the band: "It has taken some time and effort to find a suitable replacement, a person that possesses all the qualities needed to fill the position at stage right in this great band. Many talented guitar players have applied and impressed. But in the end we found the linguist and guitar phenomenon Henrik among Mayan Indians in the rainforests of southern Mexico and the deal was sealed!"
