Swedish band Refused is my all time favorite hardcore band, which ended after the release and abbreviated tour of their last album, the monumental, The Shape of Punk to Come - a CD permanently on the list of my all time fav records. Word from the Refusedfan.com website is that Refused member David Sandström has dropped that a live cd will finally see the light of day this year. “_This year will most likely give us a new REFUSED record! It’s their US label Epitaph that are planning to release a live album! The band had a meeting sometime ago regarding this and regarding their contract with Epitaph. David Sandström says: “…It was nice to meet again but it feels kind of surrealistic that new material will see the light __of day when we quit the band almost 10 years ago…” This is really great news and I will keep you updated about it as soon as I hear anything! Check this link for more info (only in Swedish): Another thing to look forward to is the upcoming DAVID SANDSTRÖM _OVERDRIVE album. There will probably be a single released in February and the album will probably be out in March!” For anyone who has any sort of appreciation for hardcore, pick-up the aforementioned TSOPTC, or the earlier (and perhaps more representational of hardcore from a straightedge view) Songs to Fan the Flames of Discontent, for primer; this is an important band, even 10 years after their demise.
