Gothenburg based classic rock band THE BLACK MARBLES have announced the departure of singer Kaj Paxéus. Kaj and the band reached a mutual agreement that the best for both parts would be to part ways at this point.

Drummer TOBBE BÖVIK says: “We wish Kaj well and will support him in any way we can. However, we look bright on the future; although we will miss our friend, everyone is extremely excited and enthusiastic for the next chapter in the Black Marble’s future.”

Welcome aboard Marica Svensson

The band is proud to announce Marica Svensson as the new lead singer for THE BLACK MARBLES. Marica was the singer in Ten Feet High which also featured Rickard Lindberg on guitar. The two also has a side project called the Black Brew which led to the remaining members’ attraction when performing an acoustic show in their hometown Gothenburg. The band further said, “Truth be told, Marica was the first one we auditioned, and she blew us away. The room seemed charged with electricity. She mastered both new and old material, and proved, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that she wanted to do this. The choice became very clear and apparent.”

The band will now focus on the upcoming audition for the 9 episode TV series THUNDER VALLEY ROCKS held at Thunder Valley in Nottingham, UK on October 31st this year. They will also continue work on the follow-up to 2013’s MADE IN CONCRETE and final recordings are expected to launch before this year’s end.

The band also is psyched to share the news with fans, saying, “This change is very exciting. We know you’re going to love it. Please help us in welcoming Marica into the Black Marbles family; she is a rare and great talent. The four of us cannot wait to record this new record and play shows together!”

In April 2016 the band will go to Spain for a 7 gig mini-tour which will be the first time for the band to play shows in that country.
