In a recent interview with Metal-Bell Magazine (to be published soon), The Wanton Bishops revealed the addition of a third member to the world, the guitarist Salim Naffah. The following is an excerpt from the interview:

Nader: On this new record we have a new collaborator and a new part of the band who is gonna be doing half of the shows with me, replacing Eddy on some of the shows. He’s incredibly sexy and we call him Salim Naffah. Salim is part of the band actually, because Eddy can’t travel on all the dates.

Eddy: I’ll tell you what; I’m stepping off from the touring wagon actually. I made it in a way that whenever I want to do whatever I want, I’ll do it, and whenever I don’t want to do whatever needs to be done there’s Salim.

Nader: He’s already doing most of the tour dates and he’s starting to grow a beard.

Eddy: Because honestly we’re starting to advertise Salim as a member, he’s the only one who can replace me.

Nader: Salim is now an essential part of the writing and touring process. He’s part of the band now; he’s a Wanton Bishop.
