Swedish rockers INVSN have released their new music video for “#61” exclusively on Stereogum HERE ( http://bit.ly/1b5oVLq). “#61” was directed by Jakob Arevärn and is the second music video from their self-titled album INVSN (out now via Razor & Tie) – iTunes Store. The band has also announced tour dates to include a few shows at SXSW (dates below).
INVSN was formed by Dennis Lyxzén (Refused, The (International) Noise Conspiracy) along with musicians Andre Sandström (DS-13),Sara Almgren (The (International) Noise Conspiracy), Richard Österman, and Anders Stenberg (Lykke Li, Deportees). Recorded in their native country, INVSN was tracked at Studio Ingrid in Stockholm – formerly known as Polar Studios – and mixed by Nick Launay (Arcade Fire, PiL, Nick Cave, Kate Bush) and Jacob Hansen (Volbeat). Having previously released music in Sweden, this album marks their U.S. (English language) debut.
INVSN Press Raves “Patron saint of hardcore punk Dennis Lyxzén has yet again flexed his title as one of underground rock’s most prolific Renaissance men with his latest musical incarnation, INVSN… Blissfully dark, yet unexpected.”
– Yahoo! Music “With his band INVSN, the singer [Dennis Lyxzén] stirs up his fiery spirit for songs that chase the meaning of life. The post-punk band hammers forward with unstoppable bass rumbles and prickly guitar accents that flower into quick synth stabs.” – Rolling Stone
“All of INVSN… is in top form.” – Spin
“INVSN is… invading.” – Vice Noisey
“Stinging and poignant.”– Diffuser fm
“One of modern alternative music’s most important voices is in the band, and their songs are great.”
– Alternative Press
“Breathtaking. Just utterly breathtaking. That’s the only word I can think of that adequately describes this superb album. Absolute masterpiece.” – BMA Magazine
