Former THE ACACIA STRAIN songwriter/guitarist Daniel "DL" Laskiewicz has been tapped as the new lead guitarist for Michigan hardcore/metal act LEGEND. LEGEND's new album will be released in 2014 via Rise Records.
Comments LEGEND frontman Chad Ruhlig: "It is with much excitement that LEGEND would like to welcome Daniel 'DL' Laskiewicz to the family as lead guitarist. We are very much looking forward to having him be a part of this next chapter of the band.
Adds Laskiewicz: "I'm very proud to announce that I'm the newest addition to the band LEGEND. I will be lead guitar/principal songwriter and I couldn't be more excited. "I have continued writing material, as always, searching for someone with a huge voice to carry my music. Upon brainstorming, I almost shit my pants when I imagined Chad Ruhlig's voice over my riffs! I got in touch with him to sing on some of my songs for fun and he threw the idea out to just be in LEGEND. Being a fan of 'The Pale Horse' record, I accepted the invitation and here we are today announcing this newly reconstructed machine. "I'm done writing the record and will begin tracking very soon. "LEGEND 2014 will stomp a mudhole in your ass."
