The band’s latest single, ‘A Date With Caligula’, is out now on Hassle Records and picked up praise from the likes of Louder Sound, Planet Rock Radio, and Kerrang! Global Creative Director/MOJO contributing editor Phil Alexander.
SDC vocalist Louis Perry explains of the single: “The track’s message is pretty simple, grasp the nettle… do your thing! Don’t be like Caligula though—if being a murdering lunatic is who you are, you should probably put a lid on it. We recorded it just before the European tour in September, it all came together pretty quickly, and we’re feeling pretty excited about the new material. It seems we’ve found our groove, and the next album is coming together nicely.”
Rounding out the end of last year with three exhaustive months of European touring, SDC kicked off 2019 on a short stretch of dates with Dutch psych rockers DeWolff, in-between sessions in the studio working on their forthcoming second album, details of which will be revealed over the coming months.
Swedish Death Candy are:
Louis Perry – Vocals / Guitar Francesco Codardo – Guitar / Backing Vocals Jiwoon Whang – Bass Guitar / Backing Vocals Marco Ninni – Drums
Pulling influence from the likes of Black Sabbath to Queens of The Stone Age via Can and The Beatles to Oasis, SDC’s music ebbs and flows from beautiful soundscapes to hellish psychedelic trips, all focused through a barrage of increasingly crushing riffs slathered in distortion and utilising as many FX pedals as seems humanly possibly.
A live force to be reckoned with, anyone who’s seen them performing in the flesh will testify that SDC are capable of upstaging most bands they play with, no matter how skilled or established. Whilst out in Europe, not only were they selected for a filmed session with Seattle’s infamous KEXP at Transmuicales, but they also performed their debut album top to bottom for legendary French Music show ‘Album de la Semaine’ on CANAL+ (whose recent guests include Idles and The Breeders).
Early support slots with Wand, Yak and Kvelertak all opened the door to critical praise from Dan P Carter at Radio 1, NME, Clash Magazine, DIY, The Line of Best Fit, The 405, and The Metro, with performances at festivals such as Eurosonic, Transmusicales and Desertfest cementing their reputation as one of the most incendiary new live bands on the circuit.
