OCTAVIA SPERATI To Once Again Utilize Session Musicians For UK Tour

Norwegian metal band OCTAVIA SPERATI has issued the following update:

"On our last UK tour, Jan-Åge Svendsen and Tom-Erik Svendsen, from the Bergen based band TEMPLE SLEEP, joined us due to the fact that our drummer Ivar's girlfriend, and our bass player, Trine, both were pregnant. We are now proud to tell you that both the children are born, in late January and early February, and all is well with both mothers and children!

"But, since it is still early days for the newly borns and their parents, we are bringing the same session musicians for the upcoming UK tour this time as well. Jan-Åge and Tom-Erik did a brilliant job for us last time around, and we are very much looking forward to be playing with them again!"
