TOTO, JUDAS PRIEST & MOTLEY CRUE For Sweden Rock Fest 2015

Wednesday, June 3, 2015
Late Saturday night, in front of a live audience of 2000 Rockbåten rock cruise passengers, the first acts confirmed for next year's Sweden Rock Festival were announced. 19 out of a total of around 90 acts were presented in a nine minute video trailer which can be seen here:

Mötley Crüe have announced their retirement after December 31st 2015. This summer, their show at Sweden Rock Festival will be their only in Scandinavia.  

Judas Priest have always received a royal welcome by the Sweden Rock audience, so it is no wonder that their only show in Sweden next summer will be played in Sölvesborg. 

Toto have been around for 35 years, but have never played the Sweden Rock Festival. Next summer, the wait is over!

Backyard Babies put their career on ice indefinitely in the spring of 2010. Soon, they will be back with a new album and their return to the stages will begin at Sweden Rock, where the band has never set foot before. "We are absolutely psyched!" comments front man Nicke Borg and guitarist Dregen. 

HammerFallD-A-D and Dark Tranquillity are Sweden Rock audience favourites and we are happy to have them back.  Thrash metal legends Nuclear Assault have not played in Sweden in more than 20 years but are now making their only Scandinavian appearance next year at Sweden Rock. Nearly 40 years have passed since the original line-up of Lucifer's Friend played together. The group were pioneers of heavy 70´s hard rock - now they are reunited. With John Lawton (ex-Uriah Heep) on vocals, of course.

Also announced are The AngelsExciterRock GoddessH.E.A.TWolfThe QuireboysDelainTorsson and Steve n' Seagulls.

The remaining 70 artists will be announced as they get confirmed throughout the autumn and winter. Tickets and more info can be found at

Introducing Denmark's LUCER

Tuesday, August 5, 2014
LUCER, probably the most promising hard rock band out of Denmark in a decade. Big words, but ask anyone who've seen this band live and they will agree. Being hailed as the new D-A-D, the AC/DC of Denmark or simply just a fucking great rock'n'roll band, LUCER are coming at you fast and vigorously.
The band consists of the two charismatic brothers Lasse B'gemark and Anders B'gemark and drummer Jonathan N'rgaard and despite their young age, they have already played 70+ shows in Denmark, Sweden and Germany.
Michael H. Andersen, CEO & A&R from Target Group/Mighty Music witnessed the band live and was blown away. 'I seriously can't think of the last time I saw a Danish rock band that made such an honest and big impression on me. I just knew I had to work with these boys'.
Shortly after our young friends were introduced to Mike Tramp. Getting Tramp involved as a mentor turned out to be a good idea, as the chemistry between him and the band was both positive and constructive. Tramp continues to be onboard as a mentor for the band.  Mike Tramp says; 'You can't deny the energy that happens when an unspoiled youthful rock band put the pedal to the metal and crank it up to 11. It almost makes you wanna go back and and re-live it yourself again. Great to see new band emerging from the shores of Denmark, that even I like and approve of.'
Next step was to get LUCER into a professional studio. One thing is being a great live act, another is hitting the nail recording. Soren Andersen (Glenn Hughes, Electric Guitars) and Medley Studio was the obvious choice. And during just one intense day ' the 2nd of January with New Year Eve hangovers, the boys recorded two songs, 'Working In The Moonshine' and a cover version of Cliff Richard's 'Devil Woman'.
The rest is history... LUCER did what they had to do and more in the studio and the result is this self-titled 7' vinyl release.
'These 3 kids rock your sox off !!'was what Ken Anthony (ex-manager of Mercyful Fate & Pretty Maids) had to say the first time he saw LUCER live. Ken is now a proclaimed fan and side-man for the band.
'. Oh yeah, and don't forget to check out the video for the first single 'Working In The Moonshine', which was filmed at a moped club on Copenhagen.  It's available on Youtube.
