With their third full-length album “Det Nya Svarta” set for release on the 7th April on Indie Recordings,  Sweden’s ALFAHANNE have revealed a track from the album.  Titled “Stigmata”, the band explained  that the track “is about our home town. How you are born full of hope for the future, but the raw climate destroys you and the town drags you down”.

“Stigmata” can be heard below and on YouTube at https://youtu.be/uKg2mBrn-T0

Formed in Eskilstuna in 2010,  the self-styled “Alfapokalyptic Rockers” burst onto the scene with energy, exuberance , and an impressive swagger, which, coupled with a fan-friendly attitude quickly earned them respect,  and an ever-increasing, and dedicated, following.  ALFAHANNE’s debut full-length album “Alfapokalyps” appeared on Dark Essence Records in 2014 and  was followed by “Blod Eld Alfa” in 2015.

The band’s lineup of Pehr Skjoldhammer on Vocals and Guitar, Fredrik Sööberg on Guitars, Niklas Åström on Drums and Jimmy Wiberg on Bass,  have a couple of decades of experience under their belts in bands like VINTERLAND and early MAZE OF TORMENT.  Together they have created a sound that mixes Black Metal with Classic Rock and Punk, and good old Rock n Roll that is unmistakably ALFAHANNE’s.

Frontman Skjoldhammer recently explained that with their third full-length album ALFAHANNE are continuing  to explore the dark side of mankind: “Alfahanne’s lyrics are very personal and have many layers of dirt. Once you dig deeper into them you find many truths as I see them.  Alfahanne will never lean to the left or to the right or write about political issues. The only political issue that is close to our hearts is equal rights but the flipside of that same coin is that we think everyone is equally…. Equally useless.”

“Det Nya Svarta” is now available to pre-order in CD and Vinyl formats from http://shop.indierecordings.no/artist/16189–alfahanne and in Digital format from https://itunes.apple.com/no/album/det-nya-svarta/id1202165056?

Confirmed live appearances for ALFAHANNE include the By:Larm Festival in Oslo, Norway in March and In Flammen Open Air in Torgau, Germany in July.  More dates to be announced shortly.

With their second full-length album appearing in various “Best Of 2015 Releases” lists, and work beginning on a follow up, Sweden’s self-styled “Alfapokalyptic” rockers ALFAHANNE will be joined on stage by special guests during a couple of the band’s upcoming shows.  OFERMOD’s R. Fjäll will appear with ALFAHANNE during their show at Copperfield’s in Stockholm on the 6th of February, and once  again when the band plays on  the Close-Up Båten Cruise which sets sail from Stockholm on the 10th of March.  Also joining them on stage during the cruise will be KVELERTAK frontman Erlend Hjelvik.

ALFAHANNE  are definitely no strangers to appearing either on stage or in the studio, and frequently both,  with special guests  who have included some iconic names in Extreme Metal, including TAAKE’s Hoest, SHINING’s Niklas Kvarforth, HELHEIM’s V’gandr, HORNA’s Spellgoth, SORHIN’s Nattfursth, and KVELERTAK’s Erlend Hjelvik.  It is a testament to the band’s musical appeal that they have been able to tempt artists such as these to collaborate with them, whilst frontman Pehr Skjoldhammer has, in turn, guested  on the latest album from HELHEIM and has frequently worked with SHINING and Niklas Kvarforth.
