Jeff Loomis Joins Arch Enemy for European Tour

Swedish death metal icons, Arch Enemy, have announced that newest members, Jeff Loomis, will be joining them for their upcoming European tour.

The announcement follows the news that, after intensive touring in support of War Eternal, Arch Enemy is now parting ways with guitarist, Nick Cordle, who states:

"With 'War Eternal', I believe we wrote an album together which will stand the test of time, and I wish them well for the future."

Here's what Jeff says about linking up with the melodic metal outfit:

"I'm very excited to be playing with Arch Enemy. Michael Amott and I have stayed in contact over the years since we toured together when I was playing in Nevermore. Not only do I admire his guitar playing and songwriting, but I also consider him a close friend. To be able to share the stage with Michael, Sharlee, Daniel and Alissa is something I'm really looking forward to. 2015 is going to be a great year... See you all on tour!"

Fans based in the USA fans will be witness to a special reunion as Christopher Amott (the brother of Arch Enemy founder/bandleader Michael Amott) has joined the band for the remainder of their American headlining tour.
