We are excited to announce that we will be releasing Ill, the third full-length from Sweden post-punk legends Makthaverskan on October 20, 2017. They are currently streaming "In My Dreams", a track from the upcoming album. Pre-order for Ill is now available.
Deep at the heart of Makthaverskan’s new album Ill lies a burning desire, a longing to find compassion against a global backdrop where love in all its forms feels as if its being sucked from our lives. Led by vocalist Maja Milner’s barbed wail, Ill is Makthaverskan turning their sights on the world at large, chasing hope and understanding in a time when it can seem impossible to find either.
Based in Gothenburg, Sweden, the post punk five-piece roused a worldwide following with the single “No Mercy” and the release of their sophomore album II via Boston’s Run For Cover and Sweden’s Luxury Records. The failure of love and loss of innocence that punctuated II and No Mercy's searing condemnation of “fuck you for fucking me when I was seventeen” however no longer dominate Milner’s worldview on Ill. Here, each new day is a cyclical curse for Milner as she sings on “Leda,” “I wake up feeling worse every day.”
You can now stream Turnover's new single Bonnie (Rhythm & Melody) on Bllboard. The track comes from Turnover's heavily anticipated forthcoming LP, "Good Nature", out August 25th, which can be pre-ordered now.
The band just wrapped up listening parties for 'Good Nature' in Boston and New York, and will be holding a third in Los Angeles on August 19th. RSVP to the Facebook event to keep up with any details on the event.
