The Kandidate har udsendt følgende statement:
Since we went into the studio to record our debut album in October last year, The Downward Candidate has been on standby due to the lack of a singer. This is something that we all hate since we love playing live and being active – and of course we can't wait to get the new shit out. Having said that we are all looking forward to the new era of this band and to get out there and kick some serious ass again! And now the time has come! It's a great honor to officially welcome our new singer Jacob Bredahl into the ranks of The Kandidate. For us it wasn't the purpose to talk Jacob into playing with us when we entered his studio, but it sure was an option that we had talked about. We all knew Jacob and love him for his personality and his great skills as a vocalist, skills that definitely covers what we have been looking for in a singer since we started the band. When Jacob expressed his excitement about the new material and that it was right up his alley as a vocalist, all we needed was a few late night talks and the case was clear. At this moment Jacob is doing the vocals for the album and our first gigs will be on the 20th of May at Loppen, Copenhagen as support for the mighty Disfear and Nine and on the 6th of June at Musikcafeen, Århus with As We Fight and Fiji. We haven't played live in almost a year and a lot has happened since then. we feel that we are a stronger and quite a different band now, and our new material sure will prove that. As a direct consequence of this and of the new line-up, we have decided to change our name to The Kandidate. Check out some roughly mixed samples from our debut album with the working title Until We Are Outnumbered on our updated myspace page. Enough said – rock on The Kandidate
