M.ILL.ION: Guitarist JONAS HERMANSSON Rejoins The Fold

Gothenburg, Sweden-based hard rockers M.ILL.ION have been rejoined by guitarist Jonas Hermansson.

Commented founding member B.J Laneby: "It took only one rehearsal to understand that we belong together. All five of us in the same room create that special chemistry you can´t explain or buy for money. Jonas has been away in Australia for some time and we've been looking for a high-standard replacement since then, failing to find the right guy. Believe me, many great guitarists have applied for the job, but something was always missing. Back in Sweden we initially asked him to do a gig with us planned in April. This five-piece hasn't played together for 6-7 months, but as soon as we did that first rehearsal together it felt like yesterday. Jonas is a phenomenal guitar player, rock 'n' roller and overall great guy so it feels extremely right to ask him back as a member. We recently had a meeting about the situation and the result is that this rock 'n' roll family called M.ILL.ION is complete again. We can promiss all the fans that we intend to kick some serious ass with a new album and electrifying shows, just you wait!"

In other news, Majestic Rock has announced plans to release a M.ILL.ION compilation album, entitled "1991-2006 ... The Best So Far", featuring songs from the first five M.ILL.ION albums plus previously unreleased material, including the following: "Evil Inside" (from the "Kingsize" recording sessions), live version of "Candyman" (recorded at the succesful Firefest gig in Bradford, England in 2005) and the video for "Backdoor Queen" (filmed at the launch party show for "Kingsize" in the boys' hometown of Gothenburg in Sweden). The artwork will be handled by none other than U.K. artist Hugh Gilmour, who has previously designed album covers for IRON MAIDEN, BLACK SABBATH and MOTÖRHEAD, among others.

M.ILL.ION will play a one-off show at Folkets Park in Växjö on April 13.
