World is the second album from AC4.
It features 16 songs that can be described as classic early 80's hardcore
punk like Dead Kennedys, Bad Brains and G.B.H. mixed
with a bit of Motörhead. In other words: the music the band
members grew up with.
is fronted by Dennis Lyxzén, best known as the singer of
and The (International) Noise Conspiracy, backed by guitarist Karl
Backman, bassist Christoffer Röstlund Jonsson and drummer
Nordén, all Umeå Hardcore mainstays from bands
like Step Forward, D.S.-13, Regulations and
Vectors. Together, they have more than 100 years of experience in punk
The band originally
started in 2008, released their debut album AC4 in 2009 and toured
all over Europe and Australia the following years. During Refused's
reunion tour of 2012 AC4 took a break from live gigs and concentrated
on the recording of the Burn The World album.
The album release
will be followed by the band's first tours since 2011, including performances
at Groezrock in Belgium and the two Monster Bash festivals
in Germany in April 2013.
