Dew-Scented Announce New Lineup, Launch Second “Icarus” Teaser

Dew-Scented have detailed their latest incarnation with the band now featuring the following roster:

Leif Jensen – Vocals
Rory Hansen – Guitars
Marvin Vriesde – Guitars
Joost van der Graaf – Bass
Koen Herfst – Drums

The band will debut the lineup live during their June 20th appearance at Germany’s “Metalsplash Festival“. Speaking on their changes, vocalist Leif Jensen (who is the last remaining original member) offered the following:

“I’m proud to present a new chapter in the history of Dew-Scented! By early 2011, after four weeks of European touring with Nile, it showed clearly that our previous ‘Invocation‘ lineup was collapsing, and one member after another left the fold for different reasons. We decided to play some final festival shows together in the summer, and after Party.San and Brutal Assault, Dew-Scented went away from the spotlight in order to re-group and regain new focus. And here we finally are again, back with an improved lineup and a really strong new album!”

He continued:

“I’m truly happy to have finally managed to team up with my buddy Marvin in Dew-Scented. Being one of my closest friends in music and the band’s ‘longest running companion,’ it’s amazing to be able to finally put the band’s musical present and future in his hands. I can’t wait for everyone to hear the great results we achieved!”

The band will release their new album “Icarus” in North America on July 31st through Prosthetic Records. For now a new teaser for it has been launched below:

As recently reported, the band have been working on both a new album titled “Stampede Of The Disco Elephants” and their new “The Unquestionable Truth (Part 2)” EP.
