No Fun At All
No Fun At All
Swedish punk rock legends, No Fun At All are back and have today announced their new 12-track album, Grit, to be released on April 13th 2018 through Bird Attack Records.

Alongside the record announcement, the band have shared the video for lead single 'Spirit' - Their first new material since 2009.

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 themselves headlining stages all over the world. Through until 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 on the band.

After a show offer in the Spring of 2004, the band found that enjoyment and love again for playing live that had been lost whilst relentlessly touring throughout the 90s. With rekindled enthusiasm, No Fun At All committed themselves to a light touring schedule over the years between 2004 and 2017, including supporting the 2009 release, Lowrider, that the band self-released through Beat 'em Down Records.

2016 saw a lineup shuffle, with two long-time 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 step it up 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 line up 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 and hit the studio with Mathias Farm from Millencolin as co-producer in his wonderful Soundlab Studio.

Powerfully infusing the energy and raw emotion of punk and hardcore, Sederra is a melodic blend of expressive rock. Bound by shared experiences rather than conventional labels, this ambiguously named band formed in 2006 from the ashes of the late 90’s and emo/punk-pioneering Longfellow (Kung Fu Records). All veterans of the Orange County music scene, the original lineup consisted of bassist Eric Bootow (Fourth in Line, As Hope Dies, Jughead’s Revenge) and ex-Longfellow members: guitarist/vocalist Tom Schmitt (Longfellow), Mike Doherty (Longfellow, Papa Roach, Die Trying) and drummer Darren Reynolds (Longfellow, Home Grown). Tony Warner (Longfellow) would soon be recruited to complete the quintet, while vocalist Steve Ludwig (Nations Afire, Hope Departed) would later replace Darren Reynolds on drums.

Debuting in 2008, the group’s self-released and self-titled EP lit a fire of interest that was further fueled by their uninhabited stage intensity and word of mouth publicity. Promoted and distributed on the road (Warp Tour, Taste of Chaos), the seven-song EP would receive regular rotation on Anchorage’s 94.7 FM, "The End" and a fan-encouraged tour of Alaska the following spring (2009). Mastered by Paul Miner (New Found Glory, Atreyu, Thrice), the album is an arresting blend of emotionally charged vocals, catchy hooks and authoritative guitar melodies that showcase both the group’s musical maturity and wide-ranging influences (Bad Religion, Foo Fighters, Fugazi, Hot Water Music, The Clash, Black Sabbath, Refused). Illustrating their broad audience appeal, Sederra is a three-time Orange County Music Awards Nominee (“Best Punk” and twice for “Best Rock,” respectively) and has shared the stage with such notables as: The Gaslight Anthem, Lagwagon, The Dirty Heads, Face to Face, Ignite, The Ataris, Death By Stereo, Strung Out, Helmet, Unwritten Law, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Horror Pops, Bullets and Octane, The Draft, and Chuck Ragan.

Sederra is currently working a full-length album to be released in 2014.
