What was the beginning pint for your music career? How did it all start?

The moment I heard “Breaker” by Accept on Swedish national radio I knew that this was something I would carry with me for the rest of my life. A long time after that I was just a metal head going to every possible show and constantly listening to all kinds of rock, but after a few years I realized that I really needed to write cool rock songs myself.

Were there any bumps on the road? What kind of challenges did you have to deal with?

We have been in good luck over the years. We got our fair share of broken-down vans, cancelled gigs, missed ferries, and drunken band members. Nothing big, no deaths, or broken bones. Well, our manager got a few too many beers in Germany last year and broke his foot on the sidewalk curb. Amateur. 

What was the most fulfilling and satisfying moment so far?

That is a difficult one, there are so many great moments playing in a band. Every record release is a fantastic feeling, and every good concert leaves a very satisfying feeling. We closed the Saturday at the Welt Turbojugend Party in Hamburg, Germany a couple of years ago, and that was a blast, it was the most fun I had on stage in the last years anyway.

How would you describe the music that you typically create?

Action filled hard rock!

What is your creative process like?

Personally I pick up inspiration from exactly everywhere, quotes from movies or books, a chord change in a song or checking out my wife. Most of the times I write the song at home, or in my head, and then we put it together in the practice room, so the base of the song is almost always ready, and then everyone sprinkles it with their glitter and make it shine.

If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?

I would go back to the time where vinyl records and live shows were the way to make it. And if you were a bad ass criminal, you would copy the music from the LP to a cassette. I miss when you bought a record and listened to it for months until you could afford to buy a new one.

If you were asked to give a piece of advice to upcoming bands, what would that be?

Listen to old music, when people really knew how to play, and they knew how to keep it simple.

What has been the best performance of your career so far?

We were pretty fucking great earlier this year at a small gig in a Swedish town called Ulricehamn. Packed place, good people and the first show with our new guitarist Chuck Daniels. It was a perfect evening.

If you didn’t become a musician, what would you be doing now?

Well, we all must work for a living, so I guess that is what I am doing now 😊. I work as a graphic designer. But if I should go for another occupation, I would love to run a small label together with a beer brewery, with a stage. Oh, what a life! 

What is new with the band now? What are you currently working on and would like to share with the world?

Our new album “20” will be released on June 27, and it is a perfect celebration of our 20-year anniversary. 11 new songs, that we are crazy proud of, and hopefully people will love it.
