Dutch bassist J.B. van der Wal (ABORTED, DR. DOOM) has officially joined LEAVES' EYES and ATROCITY.

Commented J.B.: "I'm honored, after already filling in on bass for quite some awesome tours and trips with the LEAVES' EYES/ATROCITY family, which have been nothing else than fun, that I can now call myself a steady member of this awesome group of people!

"I was already writing for Liv's [Kristine, LEAVES' EYES singer] solo album from my studio here in the Netherlands, which 'till now has already been really cool, but actually being able to focus on this, and help with the new LEAVES EYES and ATROCITY record full on from now, feels great.

"No boundaries writing-wise and a new challenge musically!

"There is a whole lot of cool stuff coming up, the next months and summer, so I hope to see everybody out there, and I hope everybody likes my contribution to the bands. I'm looking forward to it all!"

Added Alex Krull of LEAVES' EYES and ATROCITY: "It feels great that J.B. joins the camp of the two bands! We are working already on new songs together and we are looking forward to our upcoming tours. We are happy to have such a cool band mate and a versatile and creative musician within our ranks!"
