ELUVEITIE Announce New Violinist!

ELUVEITIE Announce New Violinist! - 2013-12-11 17:00

2013-12-11 17:00 - After recently parting ways with violinist Meri Tadic, Swiss folk metal institution ELUVEITIE are pleased to officially welcome Nicole Ansperger into the fold!

“As hard as farewells can be, new beginnings can be very auspicious are as well,” commented ELUVEITIE in a mutual statement. “We are thrilled to introduce to you Meri's successor. We consider ourselves lucky to have found a true master of Celtic Folk fiddling! A full-blooded musician and violin player through and through, she has played countless shows over many years and also played as a session musician for many well-known acts (such as THE HOOTERS, for instance). During the last ten years she further made a name for herself through her engagement with the Irish folk rock bands PADDY GOES TO HOLYHEAD and ACROSS THE BORDER, but also the renowned medieval/classical metal act HAGGARD. Not only a virtuoso of the fiddle, she also plays the 7-stringed violin as well as the cello! So, ladies and gentlemen - please welcome to the ELUVEITIE camp: Nicole Ansperger!”

Added Ansperger:
“Dear ELUVEITIE fans, I am absolutely delighted to be ELUVEITIE’s new violin player. I love ELUVEITIE’s music and have been a fan myself for a long time. Is there anything better than getting to play for the band you love? I am looking forward to many sweat-inducing, incredible shows with you and the band. See you on stage!”

Meri Tadic’s final appearance with the group will be at the “ELUVEITIE & Friends III” Festival, which will take place on December 28, 2013 in Frauenfeld, Switzerland.

ELUVEITIE scanned 4,242 copies of their latest album Helvetios in its first week of sales in the United States according to Nielson Soundscan. Helvetios came in at #143 on the US Billboard Top 200 Chart and #3 on the Heatseekers chart, making it their highest charting record yet! ELUVEITIE also cracked the Canadian Top 200 coming in at #73! Helvetios was released on February 28, 2012 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records.
ELUVEITIE released The Early Years, a collection of re-rerecorded and re-mastered early material, in September of that same year.
