THE HAUNTED guitarist Anders Björler has issued the following statement confirming his return to the group (as exclusively reported here last week):"Well, ever since I left the band last autumn, I have been thinking a lot about my situation and my life in general. Basically, the studies meant nothing to me, and I realized that my main priority in life is music and always will be. Therefore, I asked the members of the band if I could join again. Luckily, they had not found a replacement, so everything was cool with them. "I am really looking forward to the new recording in August — it's going to be a killer release from what I have heard so far. Forever metal, Anders" As previously reported, THE HAUNTED have booked five weeks at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden beginning on August 26th for the recording of their forthcoming third full-length CD, due in early 2003 through Earache Records.
