Soilwork Officially Welcome Guitarist Simon Johansson


Swedish melodic death metal veterans Soilwork have officially welcomed guitarist Simon Johansson (Wolf/Memory Garden) as their new permanent guitarist. The band stated of his addition:

“We are excited to finally welcome Simon Johansson to the Soilwork family as a permanent member. Simon has been with us on a session basis since 2019 and not only has he proven himself to be a solid guitar player, but also a humble human being and a true gentleman in some of the most challenging years of the band’s history. We love you and we are grateful that you are part of our band.”

Johansson added:

“I’m super stoked and very humbled to be the new guitarist in Soilwork. I have been a fan of the band since way back and now to be a part of the Soilwork legacy is a huge honor.

We first started to work together in 2019 when I joined as their session touring guitarist and during this time my admiration for the band has just grown. Now happy and proud to be joining my brothers as a full-time member and I’m thrilled to be a part of the next chapter of Soilwork.”

Soilwork‘s previous guitarist David Andersson passed away last year. Look for the group out at the following shows in the coming weeks.
