Electric Boys add 5th member

The Electric Boys have added a fifth man to their lineup in order to make live dates more cost-effective.

Jolle Atlagic has become a permanent addition to the European band, and he’ll split tour duties with old hand Niclas Sigevall, who’s lived in the US for many years.

The band say: “Let’s face it – jammin’ is kinda difficult across the Atlantic. The budget can’t handle flying Niclas in for a gig here and there, which is how Jolle came into the picture.

“On the tours with Hanoi Rocks, Jolle and Andy Christell really locked in, so it was a natural step. On the upcoming tours, Jolle will do the Dan Reed Network tour in the UK, and Niclas will do the Swedish dates and the rest of the European tour with FM.”

They add of Atlagic: “He’s saved our asses so many times we’ve lost count.”
