FRANTIC AMBER To Perform At Sweden's 'P3 Guld' Awards

Stockholm, Sweden-based "melodeath" metal band FRANTIC AMBER will perform at "P3 Guld" — Swedish radio station P3's annual music awards ceremony — on January 21 at Lisebergshallen in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Commented FRANTIC AMBER guitarist and founder Mary Säfstrand: "We really couldn't believe it when they called and asked us to play! It's a big honor for us, not least because it's P3 Guld's 10th anniversary. We will be the hardest act because all the other acts performing this year are either pop or electro and because of that, we will probably stand out a lot."

In other news, FRANTIC AMBER has recruited a new drummer — and its first male member — Erik Röjås. Erik has been performing with the band since last year's Sweden Rock Festival and accompanied the group on its second tour of Russia in September.

Stated FRANTIC AMBER vocalist Elizabeth Andrews: "Erik has just grown into our band. After all these gigs this year with him, we suddenly realized that we didn't want to play without him. And when he also wanted to join the band, we saw no reason to not make him a full member."

FRANTIC AMBER is currently recording its second EP with producer Ralph Santolla (guitarist for such acts as DEATH, DEICIDE, OBITUARY, ICED EARTH) for a spring release.

The first video clip featuring behind-the-scenes footage from the recording sessions can be seen below.

The nominees in the "Best Rock/Metal Album Of The Year" category at P3 Guld are IN FLAMES, OPETH, ARCH ENEMY, GRAVEYARD and THE HAUNTED.
