A statement from Lita Ford reads:

“Marten brings to the stage a sound and high energy dynamic style of bass guitar playing like a freight train hauling thunder through a hurricane.”

Marten Andersson commented, “For those of you who haven’t heard, Yessss I have indeed joined the Lita Ford band. I am super excited to join these awesome musicians and kind souls: Lita Ford, Patrick Kennison, Bobby Rock, and the great team around them. Can’t wait for the upcoming tour dates and to get out and rock!”

“My special thanks to my dear friend and long time Lita bass player Marty O’Brien for making this transition so easy and smooth. Good luck in Daughtry brother. I will of course miss my Steelheart bros (and all you Steeles out there) but I am planning to stay in your lives and I know Steelheart will continue to slay without me and be better then ever.”
