BATTLELORE Announce New Bassist, Vocalist
Finnish "fantasy metal" band BATTLELORE have announced the departure of bassist/founding member Miika Kokkola due to "personal reasons." Replacing him in the group's lineup will be Timo Honkanen, who has already toured with the group as Kokkola's temporary replacement on their "Atlantis Lovelorn" tour with ATROCITY and LEAVES' EYES late last year. In addition, the band have announced that vocalist Tomi Mykkänen, who also performed with the group on the aforementioned tour, has been named a full-time member of BATTLELORE and will sing on their third album.
BATTLELORE will enter SoundSuite Studio in Marseille, France on March 15 with producer Terje Refsnes (TRISTANIA, MORGUL, TURISAS) to begin recording their new CD, tentatively due this summer via Napalm Records.
