BACKDRAFT Announces New Guitarist

Swedish "classic rock" band BACKDRAFT has announced the addition of guitarist Jon Sundberg to the group's ranks. The band states, "Those in tune with the Swedish rock scene may recognize [Jon] as the lead guitarist of BABYLON BOMBS, with whom he recorded several albums and toured extensively. Jon will share his time between bands, (and the BOMBERS are in fact also gearing up for the release of their next record)."

Guitarist David "Snejken" Nordlander left BACKDRAFT in Decemebr 2008, stating at the time, "It doesn't come natural to me anymore. Through the years I've given everything, but lately I've lost the devotion and my heart is just not there anymore."

BACKDRAFT is currently working on material for its third studio album, due in 2010. The group is also seeking a new label home.

The band's second CD, "The Second Coming", was released in August 2007 via GMR Music.
