About Freedom by Refused

Refused are fucking alive. There's no escape. The Iconic Swedish hardcore band have released Freedom their first new album in 17 years.

In 1998 Refused released their iconic album The Shape of Punk to Come. It was also the year that the band broke up and declared "Refused Are Fucking Dead". Fourteen years later, the band reignited in 2012 for a Coachella performance. The group started contemplating new music within the first four months of the reunion tour, a process greatly aided by the fact that drummer David Sandström, guitarist Kristofer Steen, and bassist Magnus Flagge had already been writing together informally for several years under the auspices of a new, vocal-less band.

Freedom explodes out of the speakers with opening track “Elektra,” as Lyxzén throat-shredding declaration that “nothing has changed” catapults Refused into the 21st century. Production for Freedom was overseen by Nick Launay (Gang Of Four, Public Image Ltd., Nick Cave, and Arcade Fire. “Elektra” and “366” were produced and co-written by fellow Swede and longtime Refused fan Shellback, who has scored eight No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 with artists such as Taylor Swift and Pink.

We´re not doing a ton of shows this summer – just did one in Mexico and we have one in Norway coming up, but we hope this EP that has previously only been available on vinyl will make up for it a little bit. It contains live recordings of tracks from The Shape of Punk to Come and our latest album, Freedom, along with a studio recording of a previously unreleased song from the Freedom recording sessions.

When I am not screaming with Refused I have a band called INVSN
It’s a different thing but still awesome.
If you know your old school history you will appreciate that Sara from the Doughnuts, The (International) Noise Conspiracy, The Vicious and Masshysteri is also in the band, Singing and playing bas! Also if you are really DIY ...
