Obscura has announced the addition of guitarist Tom Geldschlager to their lineup. Obscura frontman Steffen Kummerer has issued the following statement:

"Tom 'Fountainhead' Geldschläger and [new drummer] Sebastian Lanser will add some new and fresh vibes to Obscura's trademark sound. Adding fretless guitars and more fusion drumming will definitely influence our songwriting. I am looking forward desperately to work with this new talented group of musicians on the fourth record. At the moment we are in the middle of writing new material, rearranging previously written ideas and start preparing the upcoming liveshows in 2015. First festivals will be announced soon, worldwide touring activities follow the album release. With a new record, intense performances and a full live production we want to meet our fans and friends around the globe!"

Meanwhile, Geldschlager had this to say:

"It gives me great pleasure to anounce that I've joined Obscura as their new guitar-player. Having already worked with Linus and past members Christian and Hannes in recent projects and having followed the band's career closely since their very first tour, the transition felt completely natural. Taking over Christians duties in the band makes me feel equal parts proud and at ease, since we've known and respected each other for many years. I'm very much looking forward to touring the world with my fantastic new band-mates, entering the studio for a new record VERY soon and also being able to bring my playing on both fretted and fretless guitars to a wider audience through this exciting new opportunity."
