Well it must be a day for bass players, first Alunah, and now Berlin-based classic/psychedelic rockers KADAVAR have parted ways with bassist Mammut. The group comments: “After almost three years of band history, Mammut left the band due to musical and personal reasons. We believe that this decision was for the good of us all and wish him only the best for his future.”
Mammut sat out KADAVAR‘s recent tour dates and was replaced by a stand-in musician who also happens to be an old friend of the band and has now officially been named as KADAVAR‘s new bassist: Simon Bouteloup.
“For us, Simon Bouteloup was the only replacement imaginable all along,” the band says. “We’ve toured with his ex-band AQUA NEBULA OSCILLATOR in the past and recorded a split record with them. Afterwards, he accompanied our tours on a regular basis. In autumn of 2012 he moved from Paris to Berlin and joined THE OATH. We’re happy to have him on board as a permanent member now!”
KADAVAR‘s new lineup:
Christoph “Lupus” Lindemann – Vocals, Guitar
Christoph “Tiger” Bartelt – Drums
Simon “Dragon” Bouteloup – Bass
KADAVAR‘s second full-length album, “Abra Kadavar“, entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 42. The CD was released in Europe on April 12 via Nuclear Blast Records.
“Abra Kadavar” was made available as a limited digi version, including a bonus track, as well on different vinyl versions.
