A long-time dream came true, when we decided to enhance the experience at our live shows for the Disillusion audience. Maybe from the very first days of the band, the music we do in Disillusion is very often written for 3 guitars. Until today we were of course only 2 guitar players on stage with Sebastian and Andy and sometimes it is very hard to compensate for the sonic missing of the third guitar. Especially songs of BACK TO TIMES OF SPLENDOR and basically every song of the new record gain so much when being played by 3 guitars.
So, many years had to pass before we came up with a rather simply solution: “Well then, let’s just have 3 guitars on stage!” And in 2018: Tadaa, we make it happen!
So, Ben, who was playing the bass in the last 2 years is moving to the 3rd guitar and acoustic guitar and will also be playing a lot of live “special” instruments ( also some percussion, etc.). Ben is an amazing guitar player and is actually a guitar teacher – so it feels more than natural to have him on guitar.
But more is to say: the bass-spot was vacant again and guess what – and this is exactly what this video is about – we have a new bass player – we have a new member in the band!!
His name is Felix Tilemamm. He is already learning all the old songs, the new stuff, and he is doing a great job! Felix is a very fun guy, and also a calm and already productive member (besides a soon to be professional yoga teacher – so Namasté) Of course Felix will be playing bass on the record as well.
So, from all of us : Welcome Felix!
With this major improvement, we cannot wait to play live again and deliver a whole new Disillusion sound. See you on the road!
