U.S. metallers SANCTUARY have recruited Attila Vörös (NEVERMORE) as their new second guitar player. Vörös will join the band on the 2017 European summer tour.

Says SANCTUARY in a statement: "We are all very stoked to share the stage with such a great musician. Attila has always been at the top of our guitar player wish list."

Attila added: "This is an absolute honor and pleasure for me that I'll be playing with the legendary and such influential band SANCTUARY over this upcoming summer festival season. Over the years, we stayed in contact with my friend Warrel Dane, and now I can't wait to share the stage with them again. It's gonna be hell of a summer for sure!"
