After a couple of years performing with the band only during live gigs, guitarist Sam Mooradian was officially added to Fallujah‘s full-time lineup. Anyone that’s ever seen the band live knows how much this guy fucking rips, so the addition is a welcome one.
The news came after both Mooradian and Fallujah made their own separate announcements via social media. Speaking of his change in status, Mooradian said his time with the band was a “game changer” and that he’s happy to continue contributing by working on the band’s sixth studio album.
“I’m excited to finally share that I’ve joined Fallujah as a full time member and guitarist. Being the touring guitarist for the Empyrean album cycle was a game changer for me. Being on the road with the guys and ripping countless shows together has been the highlight of my music career, and now I get to take that a step further.
“We’re currently working on album six, and I’m excited to say that I’ve been very involved in the whole process. Writing and tracking with the band has felt like a natural extension of touring together, and I’m a little biased, but I think it’s sounding absolutely insane. Can’t wait to share.
“Finally I’d just like to thank Kyle, Scott, and Evan for welcoming me in. Very excited to keep going down this path.”
Fallujah’s Empyrean came out back in September 2022. Ever since then, Mooradian — who’s also a founding member of Inhale Existence — has joined them on stage for their live shows. He was initially tapped to fill in as the band’s lead guitarist, which allowed guitarist Scott Carstairs to move back to rhythm guitar after Nico Santora left the band back in April 2022.
With Mooradian now in the lead guitar spot, the band said they’re excited to see what comes now.
“We’re excited to announce that Sam Mooradian has officially joined the band as a full-time member of Fallujah. Sam’s talents and work ethic have already added a ton of value to our team, even beyond his role as a guitarist, and you can expect to hear his contributions on this next album as well.”
