Drop Everything, Here's A New REFUSED Song, "Elektra"
Well, Refused is definitely back. The band has just released a new track, "Elektra" and the band want you to know that "Refused are fucking alive!" The band just officially announced their new album, Freedom, is out June 30 via Epitaph. Here's what the art will look like:
And, not to leave you empty handed, the band released a new track and it sounds like they haven't missed a step!
The band worked with producer Nick Launay on the album and got Swedish pop producer Shellback to produce and co-write two tracks on the album, "Elektra" and "366." Frontman Dennis Lyxzén offered this quote in a press release:
"It’s not a reunion anymore. This is one of the most radical things we’ve ever done, both musically and lyrically. "
Drummer David Sandström adds:
"Nobody wanted us to fuck with the image of the band who makes a great album and splits up. Nobody wanted us to dilute it. That actually provoked us."
Holy shit, new Refused! The band is going out on tour as well and will open a few dates for Faith No More this summer.
