EDGUY bassist Tobias Exxel joins THE UNITY!

Spectacular news from The Unity: The German-Italian power metal band featuring Gamma Ray members Henjo Richter (guitar) and Michael Ehré (drums) announces a new member: Tobias “Eggi” Exxel (Edguy) is confirmed as the band‘s new bass player and will join The Unity on their tour in September and October 2022 (see tour dates below). “I’m really happy to be part of one of the musically strongest and in a live context most thrilling European metal bands,” explains Exxel, who represents, along with Richter, Ehré, singer Gianba Manenti, guitarist Stef E and keyboardist Sascha Onnen, an awesome metal six-pack.

After their four successful albums ‘The Unity’ (2017), ‘Rise’ (2018), ‘Pride’ (2020) and ‘The Devil You Know – Live’ (2021), tours all over Europe as headlining act or in a package with Sinner, Edguy or Axel Rudi Pell, among others, are in the pipeline, as well as shows at renowned festivals such as ‘Masters Of Rock’ in the Czech Republic, ‘Knockout-Festival’ in Karlsruhe or ‘Bang Your Head’ in Balingen, The Unity are currently preparing flat out for their upcoming concerts.

That Tobias Exxel fits into the band structure perfectly was more than obvious at The Unity concerts as special guests during the Rhapsody Of Fire tour and currently at a sensational show at the ‘Rock Castle’ festival in the Czech Republic. “After some fantastic shows, where Eggi helped us out at short notice, this is the result of a natural development,” everyone involved agrees. “Everything just gelled from the first second! Together with Eggi, our fans can be sure that we’ve got lots of surprises up our sleeve.”
