Soilwork has announced Rasmus Ehrnborn has their new, permanent bassist. Ehrnborn has been filling in live with the band since 2019 and is now an official full-time member. Soilwork has not had a permanent bassist since the departure of Markus Wibom in 2016, with guitarist David Andersson having played bass on the 2019 full-length album Verkligheten.
"We would like to kick off by welcoming Rasmus Ehrnborn to the Soilwork family and announce him as our official bass player and full time member of the band," said the band. "Rasmus has been onstage with us ever since the 2019 Verkligheten campaign and recorded our EP A Whisp Of The Atlantic as well as our upcoming album that is due this year. Rasmus is a world class musician and has truly become an important member of the band, and we look forward to seeing what the future holds for this new constellation."
"For me, joining Soilwork as a full time member is a bit of a dream come true as I've been a big fan of the band for many years," added Ehrnborn. "Their musicianship and songwriting is out of this world, and after touring and recording with the guys these past few years I've come to consider them all dear friends. I'm humbled and proud to be a part of the next chapter of Soilwork".
Now all we need is for Soilwork to tell us more about that new record.
