Living In A Nuclear Town with Missiles

Hailing from Malmö’, Sweden Missiles has released the single ‘Living In A Nuclear Town’, ahead of their upcoming album Weaponize Tomorrow that’s due on 10th May through Svart Records.

Living In A Nuclear Town’ was one of the last – if not the last – song to be finished before we started the recording process,” revealed the band. “It’s also one of the tracks that was finished first and saw few changes whilst others got a good beating. Lyrically, the song deals with the rough realities, both the ones reported and seen as well as the ongoing hidden waiting to happen.”

Missiles’ lineup is Gabriel Forslund (vocals and guitar),Jens Rasmussen (drums), Tobias Augustsson (synthesizsrs) Sebastian Gadd (guitar) and Linus Larsson (bass). Coming from punk, rock, and metal, as well as surf and rather diverse backgrounds, they all answered to the call of their good friend Forslund as they were “sincerely interested in doing something new and exciting together”.

The band’s trajectory began with a 7″ single released by the Swedish label Fetish in 2016. Initially viewed as a project, Missiles has organically evolved into a fully dedicated band with a laser-guided focus, and said to be “causing shock waves in the underground with their jet-fuel genre-clash”. Combining abandoned sounds with new inventions on Weaponize Tomorrow, has been described by the band as “a one-of-a-kind album, truly a loved bastard”.

Weaponize Tomorrow should appeal to those who enjoyed the certain je ne sais quoi found in the new wave movement, a line of thought that is liberating to hear today when artists go to the bank with a genre description, and ratherl resonate across diverse musical landscapes.

Featuring the tracks ‘Weaponize Tomorrow’, ‘Dead Summer Moon’, ‘Living In A Nuclear Town’, ‘Deathlike Love’, ‘End Of The Line’, ‘A Circular Madness’, ‘Leeches’ and ‘Radio Dar’, Weaponize Tomorrow can be ordered at Svart Records here.
