Millencolin Update on New Video and Upcoming Album

Posted by: Anton Djamoos (02/12/08)
Millencolin recently shot a video for first single, "Detox," off of their upcoming album: Machine 15.
Message from the BandWe shot the video for our new single "Detox" in Stockholm yesterday! Feels like the video will turn out awesome! The video and song is a tribute to the addiction of music. Stay tuned for the video which is being edited as we're writing this!

Look at our pics here at MySpace there are some new ones from the video shoot there!

Also read the news post from the Epitaph site here:

'Swedish Punk Rock Group Will Release Seventh Studio Album In May
Revered Swedish punk rock outfit Millencolin are back with Machine 15 - their first record in three years and the follow up to 2005's Kingwood. The album will be released on May 6th, through Epitaph Records.
With an impressive string of releases behind them, nearly two million records sold worldwide and having shared stages with the likes of Blink 182, the Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age, the Orebro based quartet of vocalist/bassist Nikola Sarcevic, guitarists Erik Ohlsson and Mathias Farm and drummer Fredrik Larzon show that they are on top of their game.

While upholding the classic Millencolin sound, they chose to diversify, evolve and progress on the new album. The explosive result is pop infused punk at its all-time best with driving beats, anthemic choruses and irresistible melodies that prove the band is back to kick ass and take names.

"I think it's great. It's different from what we've done before and we're stoked," guitarist Mathias Färm enthuses. A perfect example of this willingness to try new approaches is the first single "Detox" - "Ripe with harmony vocals, an infectious melody that gives nods to both the Beatles and the Beach Boys, and seven chord changes," Erik Ohlsson explains.
For Machine 15, Millencolin re-teamed with producer Lou Giordano (Sugar, Taking Back Sunday, Plain White T's), who previously worked with the band on 2003's Home From Home. "We wanted the kind of crisp sound that Lou is notorious for. Plus we have a great chemistry with him," guitarist Erik Ohlsson adds.

Mixed in Berlin by Michael Ilbert, who lent his skills to records by the likes of The Hives and Roxette, Machine 15 achieves the perfect blend of skillful and contagious music. "This time, especially, it feels like we have something extraordinary to present," vocalist Nikola Sarcevic adds.'

Millencolin is coming up on 7 great albums.
While i agree that pulley hasn't made a bad album, they only have i think 5, and a split.

If pulley can catch up then i'll give you the win.

I find it socially relevant that they make someone like you act like the above and musically they are great, which is relevant to me and many others.

I care. Along with thousands of fans around the world. If you are actually from Hollywood I forgive your stupidity because that is to be expected.
