THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Sweden’s high-energy rockers The Hellacopters have finally returned with a new studio album! Eyes Of Oblivion, their first new studio album in 14 years, contains absolutely addictive tunes with all of the juicy riffs and in-your-face swagger you could’ve possibly hoped for, topped off with captivating hooks that won’t leave your head any time soon.

Produced by Hellacopters singer-guitarist Nicke Andersson and Chips Kisbye (who has overseen every Hellacopters album since High Visibility in the year 2000), it will be the band’s first full-length since the release of their temporary farewell record Head Off in 2008. Considered one of the most important and influential Swedish rock bands ever, they have achieved two gold certifications, won the Swedish Grammy and a Kerrang! Award, have amassed 100 million streams to date and have supported and toured with the likes of The Rolling Stones, KISS, Black Sabbath, ZZ Top and Foo Fighters. After celebrating a triumphant return to stages all across the world in 2016, 2022 will now mark an exciting new chapter in the history of The Hellacopters, with an album that sums up what the band delivers like no other: soulful and energetic rock ’n’ roll.

The Hellacopters were formed in 1994 by Andersson, Andreas Tyrone “Dregen” Svensson (guitar), Kenny Håkansson (bass) and Robert Eriksson (drums). Andersson is renowned for his work in death metal band Entombed, while Dregen is known for his main band Backyard Babies.”
