German heavy metal act Scanner have announced new guitarist Ted Hetfield.

The band comments:

After over eleven intensive years our guitarist Andreas Zeidler is leaving the band for personal reasons. We cannot thank Andreas enough for his commitment and all the great and special moments we shared during this long time and would like to expressly thank him for his commitment. We respect his decision, while at the same time we regret his departure and wish him the very best in his private life. 

Andreas is replaced by Ted Hetfield on the guitar. 
We are very happy that we have found a superb guitarist and extremely talented musician in Ted (Wicked Disciple, – have a look at his project on YT -, and Ex- BLACK MESSIAH), that fit perfectly within our band.

We are looking forward to play lots of shows in the next years with Ted
