Candlemass announces return of vocalist Johan Langquist
After 32 years away from the band, vocalist Johan Langquist has officially rejoined Swedish doom band Candlemass. Langquist replaces Mats Levén, who apparently departed Candlemass amid recording for their next album. The band has issued this explanation:
"We wanted to find our way back to the roots of Candlemass, back to the soul and essence of the band. Johan Langquist is back and we hope this will give us some new energy and kickstart the heart of doom again. We don't know if it will last 10 more years or even 5, but if it will give us just another year of having fun and playing the music that we love so much, it will be a blast! The circle is closed, Johan is back!"
