Sweden’s DARKANE have announced a new vocalist following the resignation of former singer Andreas Sidow.Â Guitarist Christopher MalmstrÃ¶m made the following annoucement:
“DARKANE would like to welcome Jens Broman as our new vocalist! He’s recently been seen in the vocal spot in CONSTRUCDEAD and THE DEFACED (and will continue to sing in both bands). Jens grew up in GlumslÃ¶v, south of Helsingborg (a good friend of BjÃ¶rn Strid from SOILWORK), but now lives in Stockholm. His live debut with us will take place in three weeks at the ProgPower Scandinavia festival in Copenhagen, Denmark on November 10th. We’ve been rehearsing hard lately and are very excited to work together with Jens. He has a huge vocal diversity and we are pretty sure that DARKANE fans won’t be disappointed. We had our interests set on Jens at a very early stage and would like to thank all the people who showed their interest in joining DARKANE as our vocalist. We wish you all the success in the future, and we’d also like to congratulate Peter [Wildoer, drummer] and [his longtime girlfriend] Erika for getting engaged a few weeks back.”
Last month, Peter Wildoer revealed that DARKANE has “about nine songs ready to record” for their upcoming fifth studio album, despite the fact that the band’s Not Quite Studio suffered an extensive amount of damage due to flooding two months ago.
