Nachdem Gitarrist Johan Snell BEASTMILK verlassen hat, hat die finnische Waverock-Band angekündigt, künftig nicht nur mit neuem Line-Up, sondern auch unter neuem Namen weiterzumachen.
Weiter geht's unter dem Banner GRAVE PLEASURES. Hier das Statement der Band dazu:
Given the circumstances Beastmilk will continue, but under the new guise of Grave Pleasures.
Along with the name change, new live/studio guitarist Juho Vanhanen (Oranssi Pazuzu) has joined the band, while guitarist Snell departs the ranks.
Juho V. is welcomed into Grave Pleasures by frontman Kvohst, bassist Arino and guitarist Linnea Olsson (The Oath, Sonic Ritual) who joined the band earlier in 2014.
The band can also reveal that they will be signing a major label deal and that they will go into the studio in May with producer Tom Dalgety (Royal Blood, Killing Joke ) with the album set for release in September, followed by a European tour.
Singer and Climax song-writer Mat "Kvohst" says of the name and lineup change “The lineup has never been stronger! We’re really excited to perform material from the forthcoming album and classic songs from Climax. The name might change, but the songs and the performance will be better than ever."
