Swedish punk rock legends NO FUN AT ALL will release their comeback album, “Grit”, on April 13 via Bird Attack Records.
The official video for lead single “Spirit” — the band’s first new material since 2009 — can be seen below.
Having formed in 1991, NO FUN AT ALL quickly became one of the torchbearers of European punk rock. Following the release of 1994’s “No Straight Angels”, the band found itself headlining stages all over the world. Through 2001, they continued to tour all over the world in support of 1995’s “Out Of Bounds”, 1997’s “The Big Knockover” and 2000’s “State Of Flow” records before calling it a day .
After a show offer in the spring of 2004, the group found that enjoyment and love again for playing live that had been lost while relentlessly touring throughout the 90s. With rekindled enthusiasm, the NO FUN AT ALL members committed themselves to a light touring schedule over the years between 2004 and 2017, including supporting the 2009 effort “Lowrider” that was independently released through Beat ‘Em Down Records.
2016 saw a lineup shuffle, with two longtime members of the band deciding to take a step back. Following a band meeting in a Vienna restaurant, they decided that it was the time to move forward once again. They recruited Stefan Bratt, formerly of ATLAS LOSING GRIP, and Fredrik Eriksson, formerly of TWOPOINTEIGHT, to fill the empty bassist and guitarist positions.
With fresh enthusiasm, the new lineup jumped straight into the rehearsal room to work on the new material for “Grit”. Alongside a number of shows and festivals throughout the summer and fall of 2017, the band put together the new 12 tracks with Mathias Färm from MILLENCOLIN as co-producer in and recorded the album at his Soundlab Studio.
