Soilwork’s new album Overgivenheten will be released on August 19. Earlier this year, the group announced that Rasmus Ehrnborn was their new permanent bassist. Ehrnborn playing live with the band since 2019 and his official full-time status marks the first time Ground work has had a permanent bass player since the departure of Marcus Wibom in 2016, with the guitarist David Anderson having played bass on the full album of 2019 Verkligheten.

Rasmus is a world-class musician and has truly become an important member of the band, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for this new constellation,” a statement read.

“For me, joining Ground work as a full time member it’s a bit of a dream come true as I’ve been a big fan of the band for many years,” added Ehrnborn. “Their musical talent and songwriting is out of this world, and after touring and recording with the guys for the past few years, I’ve come to consider them all dear friends. I’m humbled and proud to be part of the next chapter of Ground work“.
