THE RESISTANCE Parts Ways With Bassist
- Aug. 25, 2012
THE RESISTANCE, the Sweden-based metal band featuring former members of IN FLAMES, THE HAUNTED and GRAVE, has parted ways with bassist Alex Losbäck Holstad (ex-DESPITE, DECAMERON, CARDINAL SIN).
Commented the group in a statement: "As of today Alex was kicked out of THE RESISTANCE. The reason is not because of personal or musical differences. There was just NO way possible working with one you can't simply trust.
"We do not wish Alex any luck whatsoever in the future.
"From now on, we will focus on the upcoming EP and continue to write songs for the full-length album."
THE RESISTANCE's song "Eye For An Eye" is available for free download at PledgeMusic.com (e-mail sign-up required).
"Eye For An Eye" was originally made available on the sampler CD that was distributed to the subscribers of Sweden's Close-Up Magazine in the August 2011 issue.
THE RESISTANCE made its live debut on October 8, 2011 at Club Distortion in Stockholm, Sweden.
Strömblad quit IN FLAMES in February 2010 in order to continue receiving treatment for his alcohol addiction.
Jesper signed an exclusive songwriter agreement with BMG Germany earlier this year.
Strömblad is also a talented film composer. Together with Daniel Flores, he wrote the score for the film "Isdraken" ("The Ice Dragon"), which was shown at the Berlin International Film Festival in February.
