Joining Delain

DELAIN names guitarist Merel Bechtold permanent additional band member.

There’s no such thing as too many guitars! After playing several occasional shows with Merel Bechtold on guitars, DELAIN have decided to adopt her into the family permanently and continue with double guitar power.
Merel states: “I’m excited to become a permanent DELAIN member and hugely looking forward to the upcoming tours and albums. See you on the road!”
First chance to see Merel perform with DELAIN again will be at the upcoming European headline tour starting this Thursday, October 22nd.
