Christopher Jon of WHITE WIZZARD and FORTY WINTERS will fill in for NIGHTRAGE guitarist Olof Mörck on the band’s upcoming Greek headlining tour as well as European dates as the support act for DEMON HUNTER.
Commented NIGHTRAGE: “We are happy to have such a cool guitarist and cool guy on our shows playing with us.”
Added Jon: “I’m stoked beyond words to be playing guitar with my close friends in NIGHTRAGE on these upcoming dates. [I] became good friends with the dudes on the Frets Of Fury tour back in October. I’ve been following the band since its inception back in the early 2000s. I’m honored to be able to contribute to a band that’s been home to melodic death metal greats like Tomas Lindberg from AT THE GATES, Gus G. from OZZY OSBOURNE, and Marios Iliopoulos as well.”
NIGHTRAGE will film a video for an as-yet-undisclosed song off the band’s latest album, “Insidious”, on April 28 at the Eightball Club in Thessaloniki, Greece. Directing the clip will be Gabriel Psaltakis, who helmed the latest PSYCHO CHOKE video, “Get Down”.
NIGHTRAGE‘s fifth album, “Insidious”, was released last September via Lifeforce Records. The CD featured guest appearances by Gus G. (OZZY OSBOURNE, FIREWIND), Tomas S. Englund (EVERGREY), Apollo Papathanasio (FIREWIND, SPIRITUAL BEGGARS), John K (BIOMECHANICAL) and the band’s former frontman Tomas Lindberg (also known for his work with AT THE GATES, THE CROWN and LOCK UP). Lindberg appeared on the band’s first two albums — 2003’s “Sweet Vengeance” and 2005’s “Descent Into Chaos” — before being replaced by Jimmie Strimell, who sang on 2007’s “A New Disease Is Born”.
The “Insidious” cover art was created by Gustavo Sazes (MORBID ANGEL, ARCH ENEMY, FIREWIND, SONIC SYNDICATE, GOD FORBID) of Abstrata Art.
