Earlier today, Northlane took to social media to make the announcement of Padjasek’s involvement with the band, which comes the day of their first stop on the Never Say Die tour.

In the statement, they describe Padjasek as one of their “oldest and dearest friends.”

Northlane would like to introduce our new member – Brendon Padjasek.

Brendon is one of our oldest and dearest friends we’ve made on the road, and he will be stepping into the role of bassist as well as providing additional vocals.

We met Brendon the very first-time Northlane travelled to Canada in 2012. Since then we toured Canada, the USA and Australia together and forged some of our fondest memories from the road. He is a supremely talented musician and was the guitarist and then frontman for one of our favourite acts, STRUCTURES. His technical prowess extends to his work as a studio producer and session musician.

We can’t wait for you all to see Brendon perform with us on the Never Say Die! Tour, Good Things Festival and beyond!

In addition to the band’s official statement, Padjasek has taken to his personal Instagram to share a statement of his own.

I am very happy to announce that I’ve officially joined @northlane as their new bassist. From the first time I met these guys, we instantly clicked. I remember thinking how crazy it was that these people from the opposite side of the world were exactly like me. I’ve always been a fan of their music through the evolution of the band and I couldn’t be any happier to share the stage and studio with them.

Thank you to @jonathondeiley , @nicpettersen , @marcusbridge And @northlanejosh for giving me this opportunity and I look forward to the journey ahead of us. Catch us on the Never Say Die tour running November 2nd to 24th.

 

Northlane are currently on the Never Say Die tour with Being As An Ocean, Polar, Casey, Thousand Below, and ALAZKA.
