Following the great success of their recent UK tour with 3 Doors Down, TAKIDA prepare to unleash their debut UK single, ‘You Learn’, released on May 7th through Universal, and taken from the forthcoming UK album, ‘The Burning Heart’.
With no 6-figure budgets to blow open the doors of the Top 10, Sweden’s TAKIDA have become genuine shooting stars. Fact is; above all else, these are five guys who focus all their attention on writing great songs. In 2006 the single, ‘Losing’ entered the Swedish charts at No. 2 and stayed Top Ten for weeks on end and the album it was taken from, ‘Make You Breathe’, ultimately became the best-selling rock album in Sweden that year.
2007 saw the follow-up album ‘Bury The Lies’ go one step further with both the album and the single ‘Curly Sue’ rocketing straight to the respective No. 1 spots! The single stayed at the top position on the national radio charts for 10 weeks, making it the most-played radio song in 2008 – little wonder then that the band was nominated for two Grammys sending the album to Platinum status. 4 more No.1 singles followed! ‘Handlake Village’, ‘The Things We Owe’, ‘Never Alone Always Alone’ and this forthcoming UK release ‘You Learn’.
A new full song “Mass Frustration” from the Denmark-based groove metal band CHAINFIST can be streamed below. The group, which recently signed a worldwide management deal with Germany’s Rock N Growl Management, consists of the following musicians:
Jackie Petersen (vocals), Michael Kopietz (guitar), Thomas Hvisel (Guitar), Jesper Heidelbach (drums) and Braca Pedersen (bass).
“Mass Frustration” was recorded at Six String Studios with Søren Jensen behind the wheel and mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen at Hansen Studios.
CHAINFIST are currently recording the band’s second, yet untitled album. The new material is stronger, heavier and even more melodic than the songs on the debut CD “Black Out Sunday”.
