ARCH ENEMY has parted ways with guitarist Nick Cordle and has replaced him with Jeff Loomis.
Says Loomis states:
"I'm very excited to be playing with ARCH ENEMY. "[ARCH ENEMY guitarist] Michael Amott and I have stayed in contact over the years since we toured together when I was playing in NEVERMORE. Not only do I admire his guitar playing and songwriting, but I also consider him a close friend. To be able to share the stage with Michael, Sharlee, Daniel and Alissa is something I'm really looking forward to. "2015 is going to be a great year... See you all on tour!"
Says Michael Amott:
"We all wish Nick the very best in his new endeavors and we are sure that you will hear much more from him. We're also super grateful to my brother Christopher for stepping in to finish the current American tour!
"The prospect of working with Jeff Loomis moving forward is truly awesome!
"Jeff Loomis is one of the best guitar players in the metal world, in my opinion, as well as being a longtime friend. I look forward to tearing it up on stages around the world together as we continue on the 'War Eternal' touring cycle throughout all next year and beyond!"
