Swedish rock band The Hellacopters have made quite the news splash with 3 massive announcements. The band has signed with Nuclear Blast and with that for the first time ever released their full-length album Grande Rock digitally, finally. The band has also announced they are recording a new full-length record which will be released Spring 2022.
THE HELLACOPTERS frontman Nicke Andersson comments:
“The excitement levels are sky-high over here at camp Hellacopter. I know I said this was never gonna happen but I was wrong. Once in a blue moon that’s the case and not only do we have a brand new album ready to be unleashed upon you, dear disciples of the rock – we also have the immense pleasure of doing this together with the finest of folks at Nuclear Blast Records. Good times ahead indeed!”
Jens Prüter, Head Of A&R Nuclear Blast Europe comments:
“I was more than happy to see THE HELLACOPTERS again at their recent reunion shows. To quote Dave Grohl from an interview at the Australian Big Day Out Festival (where the band played with the FOO FIGHTERS and RED HOT CHILLI PEPPERS): ‘The Hellacopters are amazing. They’re one of the best bands you’ve ever seen in your life. I’m telling you. It’s amazing.’ Of course, at the reunion shows, I asked the band if they would also do a new album, but I didn’t want to build my dreams up too high. But I guess dreams can come true. Special thanks to Nicke, Robert, Boba, Dregen, and their manager Patrick for giving Nuclear Blast the opportunity to work with THE HELLACOPTERS. The upcoming album proves that they are still amazing. I’m telling you.
