KAMELOT has tapped Scandinavian singer Tommy Karevik as a new member of the band.
Guitarist Thomas Youngblood comments on Karevik being the new singer:
We had around 800 candidates for the vacant position, among them a number of really renowned musicians, and having to reject them really wasn’t easy. We want to thank all the applicants, thank you for your understanding and we wish you all lots of success in the future!
Youngblood also comments on how YouTube was a good source to search for a new singer:
I listened to a clip of a studio production featuring Tommy and have to confess that his performance really amazed me. His approach to melodies and themes suits Kamelot perfectly, and during our European shows we had plenty of opportunity to find out what a great guy he is.
