Rock supergroup Asia have introduced fans to their new guitarist in a new electronic press kit.

Sam Coulson, 26, has been recruited to replace Steve Howe, who quit the group earlier this year (13) after marking the band's 30th anniversary together in 2012.

Coulson will join founders John Wetton, Geoff Downes and Carl Palmer at the upcoming Sweden Rock Festival, where he'll make his debut as a member of Asia.

Wetton says, "Asia is ready to take its next steps along this remarkable road. We cannot wait to perform again for the fans and also to unveil some of the new material, of which we are very proud."
