Ten year celebration with special merch
We are celebrating ten years as a band and therefor we have some exciting stuff for you.
We have made some new merch coming up soon in our webshop and we have 2 shows coming up in Umeå and Luleå.
Old recording from 2006, previously unreleased
So it is finally time to reveal this gem. As part of our ten year celebration we hereby present a recording from 2006 that I (Kristoffer) recorded during the time when Moloken was still my side/solo-project from The Pookie Syndrome. I wrote songs between 2002-2006 but this is the only real recording I made.
This has never been released publically until this day. And as you will discover it is somewhat different from what we have achieved as a band, but still I was beginning to find my way as a songwriter. It is 6 quite short songs, but they are meant to be listen to as a whole.
Thanks to Raymond Ohlson, Marcus Lidman, Dag Falkman and Sven Engdahl Hamilton for your participation in the music and/or production.
This song is indeed a very special song. It’s the last song of our new album, ending something and starting something else.
It was first recorded as a demo track back in 2008 by me and our previous guitarist Johan Öman. Then it only consisted of 2 guitar tracks.
It wasn’t until the fall of 2013 when I had an epifani to call Frida Johansson (folk musician from Umeå) and asked her to add violin since I had just presented to the band that we could use this song as the ending track of our new album. But it wasn’t until when we entered Tonteknik Studio with Pelle Henricsson in february 2014 everything finally fell into place. Frida came by the studio heavily pregnany, laid down her track and didn’t even spend more than 40 minutes in studio (such a pro), and last but not least Patrik Ylmefors recorded the apocalyptic guitar loop that ended the song.
The video was filmed way back in 1967 by my grandmothers brother Rolf. And its clear that the he was a creative and artistic person with an eye for image composition.
Special thanks to Johan Norström for editing the video.
Thanks to Mathijsen MacLennan and Spencer at Heavy Blog is Heavy for premeiring it for our US/EU crowd!
Thanks to Christoffer Jonsson and Hymn for doing the same for our Swedish crowd.
Upcoming swedish tour!
After our great success with our releaseshow at House of Metal Festival and our european tour supporting Cult of Luna, it feels logical to follow up with some great swedish shows. Below are the confirmed dates, more will follow!
So late as everything else right now, but we are back from our european tour playing 5 headline shows, 5 club shows supporting Cult of Luna and playing the amazing Roadburn festival. It was truly a rewarding and amazing tour. So thank every last one of you who came out and watched us play our hearts out and also buying our music and merch!
First of all, thank you Johannes Persson and Cult of Luna. Seriously.
Playing for your fans was an incredible experience, words cannot express it.
Upcoming European tour – Headline shows and supporting Cult Of Luna UPDATED WITH FINAL SHOW ADDED!
In less than two weeks we finally head out on a really exicting European tour promoting our new album. We will be supporting Cult of Luna on six shows including the almighty Roadburn Festival. And the tickets to these shows are selling fast, Paris show is already sold out and Manchester was only 100 tickets left 2 weeks ago. We will also headline four additional shows adding one more shows in the UK and France, but also Germany and Sweden. This tour will mark our first ever visit to the UK and France and we couldn’t be more thrilled that is will happen in this way. See you out there!
It’s finally time to get together celebrating our new album, and we will be doing so on saturday performing at the House of Metal Festival here in our hometown Umeå. We will be playing song (at least excerpts) from all our releases and putting on one hell of a show, as we will be working with our own light and sound technician for this special occasion. If you live close by, you simple don’t want to miss this.

Just now, Roadburn finally made it official!
We will be playing on Cul De Sac stage on thursday april 14th as a part of our upcoming European tour.
We are playing the same day as Converge as they play Jane Doe in it’s entirety, Paradise Lost plays Gothic in it’s entirety and of course Cult of Luna plays Somewhere Along The Highway in it’s entirety among many other great bands that day. It is truly an honor to be part of the legacy and it will be a day to remember for the rest of our lives.
