Former Nevermore guitarist Jeff Loomis has found a new gig -- laying down licks for Arch Enemy. The band made the announcement that Loomis will be joining the group beginning with their European trek that kicks off on Nov. 26. He's expected to continue with the band in 2015 and beyond.

Loomis' addition means that Nick Cordle, who began playing with the group in 2012 after the exit of Christopher Amott, is not part of the band's lineup going forward. The split with Cordle appears to be amicable though, as he comments in a press release announcing the move as well.

In a statement posted on Arch Enemy's Facebook page, Loomis comments, "I'm very excited to be playing with Arch Enemy. Michael Amott and I have stayed in contact over the years since we toured together when I was playing in Nevermore. Not only do I admire his guitar playing and songwriting, but I also consider him a close friend. To be able to share the stage with Michael, Sharlee, Daniel and Alissa is something I'm really looking forward to. 2015 is going to be a great year... See you all on tour!”

Meanwhile, exiting guitarist Cordle states, "With 'War Eternal' I believe we wrote an album together which will stand the test of time, and I wish them well for the future." Cordle has already stepped aside with Christopher Amott currently on tour with Arch Enemy as they complete their North American run.

Fellow Arch Enemy guitarist Michael Amott says, ”We all wish Nick the very best in his new endeavors and we are sure that you will hear much more from him. We're also super grateful to my brother Christopher for stepping in to finish the current American tour!"

He adds, ”The prospect of working with Jeff Loomis moving forward is truly awesome! Jeff Loomis is one of the best guitar players in the metal world in my opinion, as well as being a long time friend. I look forward to tearing it up on stages around the world together as we continue on the War Eternal' touring cycle throughout all next year and beyond!"
