HEADPLATE Part Ways With Bassist, Announce Replacement

Gothenburg, Sweden-based metallers HEADPLATE have parted ways with bassist Håkan Skoger (PASSENGER). Håkan "has felt for some time that he doesn't have the same interest in playing that he used to, and since he wants the best for the band he has decided to let someone who has the drive and energy that he used to have take his place," the band write on their official web site. "The good news is that we have recruited a new bass player named Johan Andreasen. He is a very good and talented bass player and we feel that he is worthy of taking Håkan's place."

In other news, HEADPLATE will be releasing a new album in August outside of Sweden. Titled "Pieces", it will contain 15 tracks culled from the band's "Delicate" and "Bullsized" efforts. "All the tracks have been re-mastered and we have done a new cover for the album," the band said. "First off it will be released in Canada through PHD Canada in August and then later on it will be released in the U.K., Germany, Spain and a couple of other European countries."
