In Flames have announced that they have hired Act Of Defiance/ex-Megadeth, etc. guitarist Chris Broderick to fill-in for guitarist Niclas Engelin, who is under doctors orders to stay home. The band commented:
“To all of the Jesterheads coming out to our upcoming North American tour: We’re extremely sad to inform that, due to strong medical advisement to stay home, Niclas will not be joining the tour. Luckily, ex-Megadeth guitarist and longtime friend, Chris Broderick was able to step in at the last minute for the full run.
Please wish Niclas the best as he stays home to rest. We can’t wait to see you soon.
– In Flames“
