The band has announced that they're looking for a Swede: "We wanted a Swedish guitarist who lives close by...This has nothing to do with that we look down on guitarists or musicians outside Sweden (I bet there's a lot of guitarplayers that could manage the Soilwork stuff!). As we said, we're looking for a Swede, wanna be a rehearsing band again, hope you understand!"

According to a posting on Metallica's official web site, all nine shows from the band's recent European "Escape From The Studio '06" tour are now available for download (for a fee) via LiveMetallica.com.
