A few weeks ago, we were baffled that Refused guitarist Jon Brannstrom announced he was fired from the band. At the time we wondered why an inactive band would even bother to do this? Clearly this meant there were plans for another tour or possibly another album.
Well, today we have a bit more proof, and it comes from …And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead bassist Autry Fulbright II. Trail of the Dead is currently on tour with INVSN, the new group from Refused vocalist Dennis Lyxzen.
Fulbright posted a photo with Lyxzen last night, which has since been deleted, where he basically blew the surprise. The caption read:
“in austria tonight for the ahoi pop festival weekend along with st. vincent and this guy’s band invsn which he’s doing between finishing vocals for the new refused album that’s coming out next year”
I can't see why Fulbright would lie and the fact that he deleted the photo makes it seem like this is basically happening.
So if you're a Refused fan, 2015 will be a good year!
