Post-punk, alternative, dark indie rock, dark wave, gothic, dark dance – The Exploding Boy have been called all of them at some point, but the important thing is they have a new single out, ‘Run Red‘, with an accompanying lyric video that you can watch right here at Ramzine.
‘Run Red‘ is taken from Alarms! the Swedish band’s new album that will be out on 18th May through Drakkar Entertainment.
Together since 2006, Stefan Axell (Vocals, electric guitar), Johan Sjöblom (Vocals, acoustic guitar), Les Andersson (Guitar), Nicklas Isgren (Keyboards), Mattias Svensson (Bass) and Richard Ankers (Drums) took their name from a song by The Cure.
Alarms! is The Exploding Boys’ fifth album and has been described as “a beautiful blend of emotion, melodies and attitude”. It features the tracks: ‘Fireland (The End Of Dark City)’, ‘Alarms In Silence’, ‘The Day’, ‘Run Red’, ‘Stop Time’, ‘Pointless Action’, ‘Danger Zone’, ‘Sign O’ The Times’, ‘O.H.M.Y.G.O.D.’, ‘Liar’s Roar ‘and ‘11:59’.
