SCARPOINT Taps CLAWFINGER Bassist For Upcoming Shows

Swedish metallers SCARPOINT have tapped André Skaug of CLAWFINGER to play bass for their upcoming shows in Stockholm on March 26 at The Cave and March 29 at Debaser Slussen. Skaug will temporarily replaced regular SCARPOINT bassist Chris Goldsmith, who is "going on a well-deserved vacation," according to the band.

SCARPOINT recently posted teaser clips of two new songs — "Only Truth" and "The Extinct" — on the band's MySpace page. Both cuts will appear on the group's second album, "The Mask Of Sanity", which will be released later in the year. The CD was recorded at Fear and Loathing — the Stockholm studio owned by members of MESHUGGAH and CLAWFINGER — with producer Jocke Skog of CLAWFINGER.

Guitarist Pablo Magallanes left SCARPOINT in May 2009 in order to commit 100% to his new musical project.

SCARPOINT's full-length debut, "The Silence We Deserve", was released in October 2007 via Blind Prophecy Records. The CD was recorded at the Dug-Out Productions with renowned producer Daniel Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, IN FLAMES).
