Aho is forced to quit his active commitment as bass player in SoulHealer for
personal reasons. But he will continue to be a part of the family as webmaster
and wherever his help is needed. Although the band was hit hard with this
decision, they didn’t lose any time in looking for a replacement. Sami Mikkonen
thought of his best old friend Pasi Laakkonen, who has a Garage Rock Band
running with Alpha Indigo at the moment. Both already played together in some
cover band projects some 10 years ago, and for the last time about 4 years ago.
Pasi was invited for an audition, where he left no doubt that he his the right
guy at the right place at the right time. So we welcome Pasi Laakkonen as the
new bass player in SoulHealer. He will give his live debut already at the next
show on 7th September at Bar Bäkkäri in Helsinki. Beside that SoulHealer are
working hard on the follow up for their debut album “The Kings Of Bullet Alley”.
The song writing process is going great, and as usual every new song will be
tested in the live situation. So you should not be surprised to hear some new
songs on any upcoming shows. Only tracks that work live will find their way on
the next SoulHealer Album. And the band is confident to have it ready and
finished for a release in spring 2013 through Pure Legend Records.
