Tampa, Florida's The Absence
has announced that guitarist Per Nilsson
of Scar Symmetry
has joined the group. The band has already begun tracking their new EP with James Murphy
and will release a single from the effort soon.
Nilsson had the following to say:
"Six years ago the guys asked me to do a guest solo for the 'Riders' album and we've been friends ever since. I've followed their career as a fan and when they reached out asking me to join the band, it was a no-brainer. I am super excited to be a part of The Absence family; we've been jamming out some new tunes and I feel like we've got some killer stuff in the works for ya! Between Patrick and me, there's gonna be some INSANE guitar shreddin' on the new tunes!"
