Dark Tranquillity will release their new album Moment on November 20. The album is the band's first with both guitarists Chris Amott (ex-Arch Enemy) and Johan Reinholdz (Andromeda), who replaced Niklas Sundin. Both Amott and Reinholdz have been touring with Dark Tranquillity since 2017, so fans have had some time to get used to lineup. I'd also like to say that Reinholdz is a criminally underrated guitarist and I'm really stoked he's doing something these days.
Here's what the band had to say about the lineup change.
"A new cycle begins…
"Today marks the first day of recording our new album.
"In these uncertain times all we can do is try to channel this frustration, fear, and anxiety into music and words. Isolation can be a strong motivator and we are commited to making this the best it can possibly be.
"With us this time we have two fantastic musicians who have been on tour with us for quite some time and we are now proud to announce as proper real members of Dark Tranquillity; Chris Amott and Johan Reinholdz. They have been incredible additions to our live shows and now we cannot wait to hear what their collective musicianship and skill will add to this album."
Stay tuned for a single hopefully soon.
