THE POODLES To Unveil New Guitarist At SWEDEN ROCK Festival

Swedish hard rockers THE POODLES have been holding guitarist auditions following the recent departure Pontus Norgren, who has left the group to join HAMMERFALL. THE POODLES write in a posting on their web site, "Did we find our man? Well, I think you'll have to wait 'til June 6th at [the] Sweden Rock [festival] to find out."

THE POODLES consisting of frontman Jakob Samuel (THE RING, ex-TALISMAN, JEKYLL & HYDE), bassist Pontus Egberg (ex-LION'S SHARE) and drummer Christian Lundqvist released the "Seven Seas" single in Sweden in April 2007. The title cut is said to be a "true pirate story" which features an appearance by the Swedish actor Peter Stormare ("Prison Break", "Fargo" and "Jurassic Park").

"Seven Seas" was the first single from the group's new album, "The Sweet Trade", which was produced by Matti Alfonzetti and Johan Lyander. The song was written by Jakob Samuel, Jonas Reingold and Peter Stormare.

Stormare laid down his parts at the StormVox Studio in West Hollywood, California the same studio where he normally records with his band BFF (BLOND FROM FARGO), along with contributions from from former members of SLASH'S SNAKEPIT and GUNS N' ROSES, among other groups.

"The Sweet Trade" was released on September 28, 2007 via AFM Records.
