REFUSED TO MAKE TELEVISON DEBUTThe groundbreaking, highly influential Swedish hardcore band will perform on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on NBC Television on Monday, April 23rd at 12:35am |11:35pm cst. This is the band’s first ever television appearance that will coincide with the band’s first shows since their breakup in the late ‘90s and will include performances at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on April 13th and 20th. Refused will also tour the US in July, including Riot Fest in Philadelphia.

Originally released in 1998, The Shape of Punk to Come has become one of the most influential albums in decades, fusing punk, metal, hardcore, techo, jazz, emo, and hip-hop into a meld of intricate, politically charged punk that has graced ‘best of’ lists since its release. Refused’s most critically acclaimed and final album exploded on the scene with the jaw-dropping hardcore anthem “New Noise,” which helped change the game forever by influencing a range of genres to this day, which includes being named “Best New Re-issue” by Pitchfork.com in 2010.

Haha seriously. Times are tough, no shame in admitting you're capitalizing on some lucrative opportunities. God knows the temptation must've been rough

Whatever their true motivation is, I feel like this ought to be a cause for celebration. If nothing else it's fucking cool that a band like Refused is going to be on a mainstream talk show.

What kind of money does a band make for appearing and playing 1-2 songs on a late night host?

How does the process work? I've always been curious.
