TRANSPORT LEAGUE Bassist To Sit Out First Reunion Show

May 4, 2009

The reunited Swedish heavy rock band TRANSPORT LEAGUE has issued the following update:

"We are sad to announce that Ken Sandin [bass] will not be able to participate at our reunion show on May 15! The stand-in for Ken will be the actual former 'former' bass player of TRANSPORT LEAGUE, Johan Reivén. We welcome Johan to this exciting show. Johan played bass on the debut album, 'Stallion Showcase', and played big role in forming the TRANSPORT LEAGUE sound."

TRANSPORT LEAGUE will play its first reunion show on Friday, May 15 on the Terass stage at Henriksberg in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Commented the group: "TRANSPORT LEAGUE was the band who invented the phrase 'boogie from hell,' well known and well heard on the two first albums, 'Stallion Showcase' (1995) and 'Superevil' (1997). Just listen to tracks such as 'Cosmical Satanical' and 'Lost in the Desert of Habib' and you will understand what we are talking about.

"TRANSPORT LEAGUE no doubt paved the way for such artists as VOLBEAT and MUSTASCH, drawing from many sources to create a new format for heavy guitar-driven groovy rock.

"This reunion will just be for the fun of it and for the love of groovy-rocking-hell shaking music... and just to play some shows in 2009 and only tracks from the albums 'Stallion Showcase' and 'Superevil'.

TRANSPORT LEAGUE current lineup:

Matt Starander - Drums
Tony Julien Jelencovich - Vocals/Guitar
Peter Hunyadi - Lead Guitar
Johan Reivén - Bass
